Buy of the week: West Norwood, south London, £424,950
The owners of this Victorian former stable block in West Norwood, south London, have created a home that’s hot to trot. In the main living space, rustic brick walls are painted white, as are the beamed ceilings, while slate-grey tiles have been laid on the floors and a large skylight — above the double-height kitchen/dining room — creates a light, airy ambience. Upstairs finds a bright, white bathroom and a bedroom with lovely big doors that you can throw open to a Juliet balcony. Outside, a patio garden provides a little suntrap and there are plenty of green spaces minutes away, along with a new sports centre. Through Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward.
