“you instantly feel the volume of the grand home”
Modern home in a converted Gothic church
From the outside, the Gothic church in London looks almost untouched with its original red bricks and the many big windows. When walking into the conical-roofed turret that serves as the entrance hall you instantly feel the volume of the grand home. The majority of the living space is in a breathtaking central hall with beautiful internal arches and lots of light from the tall windows and the courtyard garden.
“the interior is a celebration of modern design with the best materials, an amazing color scheme and custom choices”
Original features mixed with modern design
Original details like the stained-glass windows create unique features while the interior is a celebration of modern design with the best materials, an amazing color scheme and custom choices. The open kitchen is a custom solution by Rupert Bevan with polished-concrete worktops and cabinets clad in copper-colored zinc. The floor is a blackened oak-parquet in an elegant herringbone pattern that compliments the room and serves as a contrast to the white walls and ceilings.
Impressive master bedroom with vaulted ceilings
A bronze staircase spirals up to a galleried study space overlooking the living expanse below and the master bedroom is found on the second floor. The impressive bedroom is entered through a dressing area and set beneath an incredible vaulted ceiling with several skylights that flood the space with natural light. A wonderful, spacious bathroom finished in tadelakt with a shower and free-standing bath completes the luxurious space.
