Behind the handsome façade of this exceptional 19th-Century grade-ii listed house, is a wonderfully intriguing five-bedroom family home that has been masterfully re-imagined by Undercover Architecture with interior design exclusively undertaken by Estelle Chandresinghe.
Approached across a landscaped front garden, entrance is to an elegant hall with uniquely designed bench seat and coat storage. To the right, a double room with sash windows to the front and back, contains a bespoke kitchen and dining room. A marble-topped central island sits beneath an oversized sheet-metal pendant light and alongside hand-crafted cabinetry.
Beyond the kitchen, and overlooking a verdant garden full of tree ferns, is a distinctive laundry area that is glazed on two sides. There is an oversized inset sink, deep utility cupboards and large radiators for airing clothes. An outside door leads to a covered deck area that has steps down to the garden and the separate studio beyond.
The first floor is occupied by an impressive l-shaped living space, flooded with natural light from three large sash windows. Bifold doors can be closed to separate the two spaces, creating an additional bedroom, each with its own working fireplace.
The second floor contains two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, and the first of two bathrooms. The bathroom has a double basin, walk-in shower with Tadelakt finish, and a Japanese wooden-barrel bathtub.
The top floor has two further bedrooms, both with high level children’s’ sleeping platforms that reach into the eaves. The bathroom at this level has a free-standing bath with overhead shower.
The lower ground floor, currently used by Undercover Architecture as an office, is an expansive room which is almost entirely open plan. Internal glazing designates a separate office space at the back, with clerestory windows that introduce light from the garden level. The office is equipped with hand-crafted birch ply kitchen, and a bathroom that is positioned in the vaults beneath the pavement.
The house hosts many beautiful and experimental pieces of joinery, fixtures, lighting, sanitary ware, glazing and furniture, all masterminded by Undercover Architecture in partnership with artisans, sculptors and makers. According to the architect, the location of the house and its proximity to the railway lines was used as inspiration, embracing the 19th-Century Victorian age of British industrial expansion in train travel, combined with architectural qualities associated with this era.
The house is excellently located on the fringes of Regent’s Park, near the centres of Primrose Hill, Camden and Kentish Town. The nearest Underground stations, both equidistant, are Camden Town and Mornington Crescent on the Northern Line. London Euston mainline station is a short walk to the south, and nearby St. Pancras has the Eurostar.
