Take a tour of this smart Victorian townhouse in London

10 images

The owners share their five-storey London home with their two young daughters. While the property has undergone a thoroughly modern renovation, all memory of its Victorian history has not been dismissed entirely.

The couple commissioned an architect to carry out what they call a ‘restrained intervention’ and the interior is now a vision of light-suffused modernity.

Dark parlours have been replaced by open-plan spaces, awkward half landings ironed out to create bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms and the basement has been extended to house a kitchen and dining area, utility room, pantry and cloakroom.
