Nestled in the busy streets of Chelsea, the beautiful Grade II listed Pelham Place building has been restored into a functional and high-quality family home with the help of Havwoods’ wood flooring.
Whilst preserving its heritage value, the brief was to adapt the listed home to better suit the needs of modern day living. The Georgian-style property underwent alterations to the rear elevation, an extension of the southern closet wing and a new bespoke iron staircase to showcase classic design. The décor was further characterised with steel-framed double doors that open out to the rear garden, creating a seamless connection with the outside.
Enhancing the interior with depth and natural character, Havwoods’ exquisite Salvo Prime Dark Oak chevron flooring promises an uninterrupted transition across each room in the home. The kitchen and dining areas are also surfaced with the Salvo finish, with a striking Italian Arabescato marble kitchen countertop and island to complete the overall look.
Chosen for its beautifully on-trend and timeless pattern, the Salvo board from the Design from Havwoods collection delivers a flooring solution perfect for traditional townhouses. The genuine reclaimed wood surface wears the patina of its past, with natural scuffs and marks, providing a characterful choice for the property.
The aesthetic is completed with rich green tones and luxurious brass detailing to enhance the elegant feel, resulting in a well-appointed heritage home that exudes hints of chic contemporary character.
