3,126 sqft,  6 bed, 4 bath

London Borough of Hackney

Completed in late 2021

Nestled on a charming street in a vibrant pocket of Hackney, this property underwent a complete transformation. The original house has been meticulously refurbished, while thoughtfully designed extensions – including a new basement, single & double-story additions, and a mansard roof extension – create significant additional space. While maintaining a harmonious aesthetic, the use of zinc roofing and the asymmetrical pitched roof of the single-story extension subtly introduce a touch of modern flair.

The front door is to the side of the house and you enter at approximately the mid point, offering an uncommon arrival experience for this property type. The entry hall becomes a feature central hub that beautifully ties together the kitchen, living room and staircase. As you step inside, you're immersed in the language of craftsmanship, with restored heritage details, and a bold use of colour that electrifies the space. Flanking either side are timber-framed glass doors, their deep amber hue casting a warm glow.

The front of the house accommodates a cosy living room, with a bay window, and restored feature fireplace. The extension to the rear houses the kitchen and a lovely open space for the dining table which centres on the patio doors to the garden. The exposed wooden rafters of the extension, and central steel beam showcase the space's strong bones, creating a sense of traditional craftsmanship. Despite its structural honesty, the space feels open, well-lit, and free of clutter. The kitchen embraces a simple layout with two side runs and a central, semi-portable island. Each element pops with a unique colour, creating a fun and energetic atmosphere without going overboard.

The fusion of modern elements and timeless traditions extends throughout the upper levels. The bedrooms feature plush textures and soft lighting, creating a thoroughly relaxing and comfortable environment. The bathrooms evoke a sense of nostalgia with classic sanitaryware and beautifully ornate paneling
