Period homes when mixed with contemporary finishes and interior furnishings offer the best of both worlds – the lovely feel of having something crafted and old alongside sleek, modern design - it’s like putting the icing on the cake.

The best conversions seem to be those that preserve the essence of what makes a period home special – normally in the form of ornate tiles, fireplaces, stained glass windows, architraves enhanced with modern well thought out floor plans, and a dusting of classic, contemporary furniture.

Choosing the right colour scheme is also important, often those rooms that are painted in one colour, including the woodwork make original features shout out, such as a beautiful ornate tiled floor will look much better when showcased next to something plain – think art gallery.

At the moment Hawes and Co Wimbledon Village has a beautiful four bedroom period house for sale for £935,000, which offers the perfect mix of old and new. The current owners have created a superb, modern open plan kitchen, dining room which has a lovely light feel, due its neutral colour pallet and the lustrous extension.
