Take a tour around a London home, reinvented to meet its owners’ needs

15 images

When a well-meaning friend remarked that their home looked ‘lived-in’, the owners of this four-storey Victorian house decided it was time for a change. Their four children were growing up, so it might have been an appropriate opportunity to downsize. Instead, they went for a rip-to-the-rafters rebuild. The once poky entrance hall is now a bright vestibule where creamy limestone flooring stretches as far as the eye can see.
