House Kelross Road

Built in late 1920, this semi-detached house near Highbury Fields had gone through several badly executed refurbishments. We gutted the entire house and added a new brick extension and two roof dormers creating a 5 bedroom family home. With its south facing garden, cottage & garage, looking out onto a Georgian Terrace, this house feels exceptionally spacious and opening up the Ground Floor has increased this sensation. While on the ground floor the original character was retained only with the entrance lobby and the stairs, the first floor has been kept entirely original. The second floor attic space was turned into the main bedroom with a shower.
