“When we first stepped foot into this house, we had already unknowingly fallen in love with the neighborhood — handsome streets leading to acres of parkland, a London-esque pub and a charming florist nearby,” begins Natasha, who (along with her partner, Andrew) has owned this 1400-square-foot South West London house for three years.

“The house was a blank canvas, bursting with unrealized potential and we relished the opportunity to put our mark firmly on it,” Natasha writes. “The sweet outdoor space — which was carpeted with AstroTurf, not a living organism in sight — tugged at my inner aspiring gardener heartstrings, which had missed a garden, as I grew up with one.”

“Being steadfast foodies, we grimaced slightly as we realized we’d have to endure a small galley kitchen for a while, which was crying out for a renovation. I made it my mission to ensure we made this house ours as we nervously went into sealed bids. The stars must have been aligned, as we received news in disbelief that fateful day — the house was ours!”

“We renovated the ground floor of our home, creating an open-plan kitchen, dining, and living room,” Natasha explains. “This is our first house, so we really had fun selecting materials and client supply items. We instructed the building contractors in Autumn 2021 and started the renovation in January 2022. The extension was complete at the end of March/early April 2022.”
