Old and Charming English Brick Cottage in London

My friend and I were discussing new and old houses today and we both agreed that older homes have a certain charm and soul. Something about their history pulls at your heartstrings. I think you’ll find this to be true when you tour today’s charming English brick cottage located in London.

Open the front door and be drawn into the ambiance of this house with its painted woodwork and a surprisingly modern light fixture. The stairs caught my eye with their well-worn treads showing years of activity.

Blue paint continues into the living room with its quaint brick fireplace and built-in bookshelves.

Velvet is making a comeback and the owners paired a comfy rust-colored sofa with the blue color scheme. Furnishings create an eclectic look in the English brick cottage.

The kitchen provides ample space for cooking. A white-washed brick wall serves as the backdrop for dark blue cabinets. The wood counter top creates an earthy, organic vibe.

Updated windows allow plenty of natural light to infuse the brick cottage’s interior spaces.

The dining room pairs a mid-century modern sideboard with a farmhouse table while floor-to-ceiling windows keep the old English home from being dark and dreary.

Outside the dining room is a nice sized deck for enjoying the outdoors.

The bathroom also features white painted brick walls like the kitchen. Notice the strange brick work above the steel beam. Quirky elements like this make this English brick cottage a unique home. The bathroom sink is made of concrete – yet another fun and surprising feature.

Many old houses don’t have long straight hallways that you see in newer homes. The owners gave the walls and doors a continuous two-toned paint scheme. A desk gets tucked in a corner for a makeshift office.

An upstairs bedroom enjoys a beautiful fireplace with painted mantel.

    Very charming with lots of interesting things to draw the eye. I like old brick, its very special and gives warmth to a room.

  2. Downraspberrylane says:

    This is a very nicely designed house, but they have stripped out most of the character and made it look very much like any modern house in the suburbs. The only remaining historic charm I see are the entryway, and I do love that fireplace in the bedroom. I will never understand why people buy these beautiful old homes if what they really want is a modern one.
