Take a look around this glam Victorian terraced house in north west London

The owners, who work in the media and law, bought this four-bedroom Victorian terraced property in 2011. It was in a terrible state when they first viewed it, having been split into several bedsits, with sinks and hotplates in every room and several ceilings that had fallen in.

Shortly after buying the property, the couple visited New London Architecture’s ‘Don’t Move, Improve!’ exhibition and were impressed by the work of Paul Archer Design – in particular his glass extensions. The house was completely gutted, rebuilt and extended at the side and back, and the loft converted, which took 15 months to complete.

The transformation is remarkable – the once dilapidated building is now a glamorous yet functional home, which perfectly balances contemporary and vintage style. The living room is at the front of the house, with the kitchen positioned centrally at the heart of the home.

Beyond the kitchen, towards the garden, lies the much-wanted glass extension, which serves as an airy, light-filled living-dining room.

Upstairs, there’s a bathroom, guest bedroom and the couple’s main bedroom which includes a dressing room and en-suite shower room. On an upper level there’s another guest bedroom and shower room with the children’s shared bedroom up a few more stairs.
