A Carefully Restored Victorian House in London
My unwavering devotion to showing you beautiful Victorian houses in England continues today with this wonderful home tour. This Victorian home is located close to London Fields and has been carefully restored by its current owners.
The house is built around 1850 and had been divided into separate flats when its current owners bought the property. They wanted to restore the home to its former glory and thoughtfully renovated the home.
To do so, they restored original features that were missing and replaced modern features with historic ones. For example, they installed reclaimed wooden floorboards from Lassco, making sure they are the same age as the house. And North Kent Joiners replaced the windows with beautifully crafted, new wooden ones.
On the raised ground floor, the entire length of the house is now devoted to an open-plan sitting room. The two rooms can be closed off from each other, but by opening the doors you will have light flooding in from two sides.
The cozy front room is painted in a light pink shade. Both rooms have new marble fireplace surrounds, cast-iron radiators and a warming wood-burning stove.
The back room is a tad moodier with a darker shade on the walls and black shutters. This room overlooks the lovely back garden.
The original staircase leads to the lower ground floor that has been transformed into a light cottage-style kitchen and dining room.
The old terracotta tiles are saved from a farmhouse in the French countryside.
Under the stairs they created a pantry.
The light galley kitchen with open shelves is by Plain English. It includes a Carrara marble worktop and a La Canche stove. French doors lead to the green garden.
On the lower ground floor is also one of two bedrooms.
The deep blue bedroom with study is located at the front of the house and overlooks the front garden.
The bathroom on the raised ground floor have white New York subway tiles from Heritage Tile.
The first floor is home to the master suite painted in a calm sage green hue. The bedroom has a recalimed fireplace and one wall has fitted cabinets.

The green hues continue in the vintage-style master bathroom. The room is decorated with William Morris “Willow” wallpaper.
The house has a southfacing garden with a spacious terrace and plenty of greenery. An old brick wall runs the length of the garden, and the owners have created a bench that runs along it.
