The two-bedroom property in Balham, South West London, is largely open plan downstairs and has a small private courtyard

The bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and are decorated with neutral colours to maintain a light and airy feeling in the home

Large Crittall windows open out into the courtyard which is surrounded by red brick walls and looks in on the modern house

The property’s listing explains that the home is in an ‘affluent part of town and just moments from the buzz of Balham High Road.’

The home is tucked away from the main road, which is ‘lined with imposing period property’, and on a mews.

To get in you ‘have to shimmy through the private gated entrance and in to a wonderfully landscaped courtyard that’s surrounded by the property, a former paper warehouse and the home of thirty years to the current owner.

The current owner has a strong creative eye and has absolutely transformed the home into something that wouldn’t look out of place on the pages of an interiors magazine.

The listing explains how: ‘The building itself stood to the rear of what was once a print works and now a series of private conversion flats and served as a paper warehouse. 

‘Whilst it may have a very linear, architectural feel, it’s a really warm environment and has lost none of its period charms.

Evidence of its industrial roots are dotted around. The decorative tones used add to the tranquil feel.

Inside the ceilings are high and the rooms have been well decorated by the current owner who has lived there for 30 years

The home is tucked away from the main road, pictured, which is ‘lined with period property’ and is close to Balham High Road

Downstairs is the reception room that leads to the courtyard, a study and kitchen. Upstairs are the bedrooms and bathroom

The ground floor is largely open plan but still manages to seamlessly house an office space, living, dining and kitchen area, all of which benefits from large Crittall windows and doors or vast skylights.

The courtyard is accessed from the living area or entrance and thanks to the plot being landlocked, it’s incredibly quiet. That said, sling the doors open and the living area and courtyard provide the perfect party environment.

Upstairs there’s two bedrooms and bathroom, again all benefitting from the owners’ attention to detail, plus the vaulted ceilings, adding some drama to the feel of space.

The home is also close to travel links with overline trains at Balham running regularly into Victoria and the Northern Line tube close by linking to the City, Shoreditch via Clapham and beyond.

The modern kitchen is tucked in behind the stairs and connected to a large reception room which leads to a downstairs study

There’s ample under stairs storage in the two-bedroom South West London home which is now on the market for £945,000
