Half a century after she was built, this three-bedroom beauty in Wilton has been given a well-earned makeover. A lift, imported from Italy, will allow both floors to be enjoyed by the owners for many years to come.

Two freshly tiled bathrooms boast spacious showers with wheelchair access. New insulation, double-glazing and the addition of heatpumps promise a warm, dry, healthy home, even in the wildest winter weather. The lower level is now home to a relaxing open-plan living space. The entertainer’s kitchen looks over the lounge and dining areas. The generous allocation of new windows allows the cook to take in the scenery while preparing tasty meals. Double doors open out from the entrance hallway to the family room. A fireplace adds ambience and extra warmth to this cosy and relaxing space. A new garage, storeroom and laundry provide pleasing practical touches. Two glass canopies allow for the doors to be opened and fresh air to be appreciated in all weather. A new roof is the crowning glory of this golden upgrade.
