Balcorne Street E9

A Victorian Terraced House with original features that was imaginatively architecturally extended in 2014, and has subsequently featured in Open House London, The Metro Property section, 25 Beautiful Homes, and SelfBuild & Design magazine.

The extension is light and airy with Scandinavian style exposed rafters, roof lights, and an open plan ply and slate kitchen with an unpolished concrete floor. It features a large dining area (for 8) with the backdrop of the garden, along with a cosy reading nook wrapped in timber and green soft furnishings.

The kitchen opens entirely (with large bi-folding doors) onto a well landscaped garden with in-build outdoor seating, very good festoon lighting, an outdoor bed, outdoor speakers, a BBQ, and a pingpong area.

Elsewhere on the ground floor there is a small and beautifully top-lit office, a art-filled and wallpapered downstairs loo, and a sitting room and hallway that benefit from original features combined with exposed brick walls and art on every wall, home to recently re-upholstered (in leather and linen) antique furniture.  The ground floor has two open fire-places that are fully functioning, an upright piano, and space to dance or lay out extra tables for a big sit-down dinner for 20 people.

Upstairs is a beautiful master bedroom, which has a super-kingsize bed with a stunningly hand-crafted Elm headboard, exposed brick walls, and Moroccan Tadelakt plaster elsewhere.  It has built-in storage, bright yellow linen curtains, and original floorboards.

The bathroom is spacious and recently re-decorated, and the second double bedroom has a fireplace and antique furniture.

The front of the house has off-street parking for a scooter, tidy built-in timber clad bin-storage, and various pants that climb up the house and provide foliage or flowers climbing in all seasons.
