Livingston Drive North, Liverpool, L17
The exterior of this South Liverpool converted coach house is brimming with beautiful original character. Inside, the two-bedroom first floor apartment’s spacious living room is given a cool, modern touch with its skyline artwork and grey colour scheme. A large comfy corner sofa, classic lamps and a fluffy rug soften the style to give an overall homely look.

Cornwallis Court, Liverpool, L1
Located inside a large brick building in keeping with Liverpool’s historic Ropewalks district, this two-bedroom apartment couples the character of its setting with a cool, relaxed style. Exposed interior brickwork and striking artwork sits alongside a textured rug and mismatching cushions to subtly bring the large living and dining room area to life.

Allerton Road, Calderstones, L18
This picturesque Grade II-listed lodge house is just as striking inside. A bright open plan kitchen and living room provides a generous communal space in this three-bedroom bungalow. The kitchen area comes with a range of integrated appliances and down lighting hangs over an island sink and work surface unit, enhancing the stylish, up to date look. Meanwhile underfloor heating is among the modern features. Bi-folding doors leading onto a patio terrace and rear garden bring an abundance of natural light into the living room which complements the neutral colour scheme.
