Superior Spaces: magazine-worthy interiors from homes currently for sale
Some of our homes are attractive for their generous warehouse proportions, some are the finest examples of Modernist architecture in the country, and some are imaginatively converted period houses. Others are just exceptionally beautiful. Here, we show the magazine-worthy interiors from homes that we currently have for sale.
Shoreditch High Street, London E1
Architects Chan & Eayrs have applied their bespoke treatment to this expansive warehouse loft in Shoreditch. Looking to reference greenery from a nearby park, the duo used soft green plaster throughout, forming a light backdrop for handwoven textiles, monochromatic artworks and one-off vintage fixtures.
The apartment has been featured in numerous publications, including The Times LUXX and The New York Times’ T Magazine. Read our interview here.
Rye, East Sussex
This large family home overlooking the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty was originally built in the mid-19th century. Its generous proportions and original period features have been used by the current owners as a foundation to make sensitive additions, including oak flooring, a soft-hued colour scheme and wood cabinetry.
Marina, Saint Leonards-on-sea, East Sussex
Sometimes the formula for a good interior is easy: just let the original character of the building shine through. As is the case at this special apartment overlooking the English Channel, which includes an extension originally built as a billiards room for Kaiser Wilhelm II in the late-19th century.
The vaulted ceilings and stained-glass windows take centre stage here, while a woodburning stove, Berber rug and restrained furniture are elegant additions.
Lansdowne Crescent, London W11
When we visited this house for our Journal, Emma Lever, daughter of Jeremy and Jill Lever, told us that the house her parents designed for themselves, “was a labour of love and a product of their creative force.” Warm, intimate spaces are defined by their artful use of wood, all complemented by the couple’s collection of abstract paintings, intricate textiles and turned objects.
Varden Street, London E1
Historic paint expert Pedro da Costa Felgueiras restored this Georgian townhouse, fusing old techniques such as lath plastering and hand-mixed paints with contemporary sensibilities. The result is a harmonious confluence of historic, old world charm with modern design pieces and colour palettes.
Pedro’s sensitive restoration has been the subject of numerous editorial features, including stories for House & Garden and us.
Marne Street, London W10
This thoroughly renovated house in Kensal Town is defined by its bare plaster walls. Applied throughout the house, the raw quality of the material adds an aesthetic richness, especially when its subtle textural variations capture natural light.
