Dream homes – Cosy living rooms

Posted: October 3, 2017

The living room, the lounge or the sitting room. Whatever you call it, it’s usually the room in which you spend a significant percentage of your downtime. It’s where you watch the television, entertain friends, read a book or enjoy games with the family.

Living rooms are often described as comfortable, spacious and elegant. In this blog, we’ve chosen to showcase five living rooms we would describe as ‘cosy’. They’re homely rooms that give a feeling of warmth and relaxation. Open fires and wood burners add to the intimate and inviting atmosphere, with rugs, coffee tables and some stunning wall art adding personal touches to the most family of rooms.

To view one of the properties listed below, call the relevant David Burr office to arrange a booking. If you just want some inspiration for your own living room, recline in a comfy chair and enjoy these great examples of some of the cosiest of cosy living rooms currently on the market…
