One of the best houses in Britain explored

A six-bedroom property in south London which makes extensive use of glass in its design is among the candidates for the title of best British home.

The Telegraph explains that the double-fronted five-storey Victorian houses stateliness both absorbs and complements its predominantly white decor.

Large rooms, high ceilings and period features such as stained-glass door panels are enhanced by the monochrome colour scheme.

Massive glass-panelled sliding doors cross the drawing and dining rooms and are as wide as a the house will allow, a style which is repeated throughout the houses interior design, being replicated in cupboard and closet doors with mirrored inserts.

The most striking feature of the house is the kitchen extension, which features a 25 foot-long white granite worktop, sky lights and French windows.

Meanwhile, ClickPress recently reported that Kudos Showers described curved glass as "the ultimate in contemporary design", noting its presence in many sectors, from home interior to cars.
