Take a look at our past. The true spirit of Domus Nova and all we stand for.



Steeped in history, this grand example of Georgian revival architecture is brimming with characterful design touches. Behind the wrought iron railings and redbrick façade is a home that surprises and delights in equal measure. A commanding presence in a leafy location, this imposing property is cloaked behind a curtain of privacy.

Inside, a central carved mahogany staircase makes for a grand entrance, unfurling over three upper floors. An elaborate silk paper adorns the walls. Circling this space is a series of reception rooms. To one side, a rich, wood-panelled dining room crowned with intricate cornicing – the scene of suppers drawn out late into the night in front of the open fire. To the other side, a classical drawing room to decamp to after dinner, with its large, carved stucco fireplace, ornate mouldings and decorative pillar detail. Next door, a study and a vast kitchen-diner with shaker-style kitchen and warming AGA – the heart of the home. Sets of sash windows keep the room bright, funnelling light onto the polished parquet floors that run throughout. A generous space for all the family to congregate, with a snug just next door that opens out onto the central courtyard and a garage, home to a classic roadster.

Upstairs, the first floor hosts four bedrooms – two with family-sized en-suite bathrooms – and a large study opening out onto a terrace. The master, flooded with light, is decorated with a striking hand-painted mural, a rolled-armed chaise ensconced in the bay. A wonderfully indulgent space to wake up in. On the second floor, a media room with its own sleek kitchen, family-sized bathroom and separate bedroom – perfect for visiting guests, working creatives or members of the family needing their own privacy.
