The second double bedroom is a large room, with ample space for a double bed, desk or chest of drawers and double wardrobe. We have freestanding furniture in it but it lends itself to having a built-in wardrobe.double bedroom

It’s another bright room, floored in real-wood laminate, and is, if you like, a blank canvas for your own design. Throughout the house, we have removed all traces of wallpaper and painted low-key emulsion; we know only too well what a pain it is to replace someone else’s bold tastes with your own.

All the bedrooms lead out on to the rather lovely landing. If we were staying, we’d be inclined to replace the existing staircase and balustrade with something more modern. It is currently varnished pine.

The master bedroom, with its en suite bathroom, is a comfortable double with a built-in wardrobe. The room is floored throughout with real-wood laminate and has a sunny, east-facing window. As with the entire house, it has a wooden Venetian blind and curtains.master bedroom

The room has a short double radiator but, in truth, we have it switched off most of the time because this is such a warm room. This is the room with the best view over the garden, and in spring, we always leave the window open a little at night so we are greeted by birdsong in the morning.
