Fans of salvage style may want to snoop around this extraordinary Grade II-listed town house on London's super-cool Bermondsey Street, which has popped up for sale on The Modern House (opens in new tab).
Built in 1729, the four-storey house retains many of its original Georgian features and has been entirely renovated and reconfigured by Mosley and Mann architects.
It's situated amidst the shops and cafes of Bermondsey Street, where a private entrance leads up to the first floor living quarters. The house has two private roof terraces with views of the City of London, including the Shard.
The project was completed in collaboration with the artist and craftsman Robert Mosley, who is largely responsible for the extensive joinery and restoration work throughout the house.
The aesthetic combines the original Georgian features; exposed beams, plaster, eaves and brickwork, alongside contemporary craftsmanship and modern elements required for twenty-first century life.
The large open-plan kitchen and dining room has the original dark oak boards running underfoot.
A bespoke, built-in dining table in reclaimed oak looks suitably at home in the space.
The kitchen has a large gas Aga, and an additional electric hob. Further modern elements include a dishwasher drawer, stainless steel open-shelves and magnetic knife holders, while subtle strips of recessed lighting are positioned overhead.
One of the most charming features is a full-size Victorian sink set between the kitchen and large structural beam.
The living room is positioned beneath a dramatic pitched roof, with exposed beams. This room has lime plaster walls and glazed doors which open out directly onto a private roof terrace, with cor-ten planters and climbing shrubs.
The terrace provides views of the Shard.
On the second floor, at the front of the property, is the principal bedroom, which has a wood-panelled en-suite shower room, with a hard carved wooden sink.
The panelling leading to the shower conceals ample built-in storage space.
There's also a large family bathroom, with a free-standing bath, restored-brick hearth and a hand-carved wooden sink.
On the opposite side of the bathroom is a large walk-in shower and W.C.
There are two further bedrooms on the third floor and access to a second roof terrace.
