I know a lot of people who view this site love authenticity when it comes to period houses. So it will be interesting to know what you think of this modernised 1930s five-bedroom modernist property in Shepherds Hill, London N6.
In a way, it’s the logical thing. Turn a modernist house from the past into a modernist house of the present and to be fair, if that’s what you want, this is an impressive renovation. But it certainly doesn’t come cheap.
The renovation of this end of terrace uses the same structure and open space of the original design. Once inside, you’ll find Skyframe floor-to-ceiling glazing, skylights and full-length windows to boost the light and space further, along with oak floors and detailing that screams ‘premium’.
Two of the three floors are open plan areas, with the ground floor designed to bring the outside space in. There’s also a bespoke made to measure kitchen on this floor, a dining room and a utility room, with the master suite with en-suite and dressing room to the rear of the floor. The first floor space contains the three additional bedrooms and the top floor hosts the second entertaining and lounge room which extends to the full width of the house. There’s also a huge arched skylight runs the length of the floor.
The gardens are impressive, including structured and symmetrical terracing incorporate formal flower beds (see the images to get an idea of those) and there’s a internal garage too.
Perhaps get a Lotto ticket if you want this place. The asking price is £2,750,000.
