Muswell Hill House
key description: conversion, renovation & refurbishment
of a family house in Muswell Hill
client: private client
borough: Haringey Council, London
A large late Victorian property in a conservation area is being converted from 8 bedsits to a luxury family house. The primary intervention is the addition of a hardwood clad extension to the rear of the property. This extension utilises glass sliding folding doors and roof lights as well as frameless corner windows in order to maximise the light penetration into the heart of the house.
A reconfigured ground floor plan now provides a generous family kitchen, glazed seating area and sunken dining room. The front of the property retains its traditional sitting room and re-constructed sliding sash windows. The upper levels of the property are also reconfigured to provide 4 double bedrooms, associated bathrooms and an expansive master bedroom suite on the top floor.
The clients worked closely with Unit One Architects on the design and have really made their mark on this property by helping create a beautifully designed home.
