On a tree-lined terrace within the Barnsbury Conservation Area in London stands a beautiful four-bedroom townhouse with blue color accents. The 2,400 sq ft townhouse is located over five stories and features four bedrooms.
The London townhouse has recently been renovated and now seamlessly blends period features with contemporary elements, such as an industrial steel door and a new extension.
The townhouse has no historic proportions; the spaces have been opened up to create flowing, spacious, and bright living spaces with windows at the front and back. Blue has been chosen as the accent color in this home, which can be found in wallpapers, kitchen cabinets, and trimmings.
The double living room is located on the first floor of the house. Doors between the front and back room, as well as toward the hallway, have been removed to create one big space.
A duo of ceiling-height, large-paned sash windows provide a view of the mature cherry tree at the front of the house. It also makes this room very bright.
The room features restored cornicing and two honed-marble fire surrounds are used to house new gas fires.
The back room is turned into a snug/television room.
One floor below the living room lies the open-plan kitchen and dining room. The teal kitchen cabinets are paired with marble worktops and brass handles.
A cozy breakfast nook has been created with a red leather bench with underneath storage and a small bistro table. Next to the kitchen lies a sunroom that gives access to the green garden. The glass floor in the sunroom provides the floor below with extra natural light.
The teal trims act as the colorful divide between the kitchen and the dining room.
The front room is now the combined dining and music room.
The Crittall door between the dining room and hallway helps to enhance that open feeling.
The hallway has simple restored cornicing and oak floorboards that run through most rooms in the house.
The nook of the master bedroom is turned into a cozy home office/library with dark blue walls and built-in bookshelves.
The top floor bedroom is decorated with Lewis & Wood “Beech” wallpaper.
The second bathroom features Rose Pink Herringbone Honed Marble Tile from Bert & May.
The basement floor features two more bedrooms that are very light thanks to a lightwell at the front, glazed sections of upper-ground flooring at the rear, and French windows onto a section of patio garden.
The house has a charming garden with flagstone paving and a variety of evergreen plants and trees.
