Step inside this Victorian terraced home in London

This end-of-terrace period property was precisely the kind of project the owners were looking for. The house had been a squat, so the rooms were full of rubbish, and in one, a leaking water tank had caused the ceiling to partially collapse. The flat was also awkwardly configured, with three bedrooms, a kitchen and sitting room all on one floor, but the new owners were keen to put in an upper story to turn the flat into a duplex apartment, complete with a generous roof terrace.
