"Bay windows at the front and back pour light into the living and dining space and a glazed door opens to the rear decking."
Situated on a quiet, tree-lined residential street close to the centre of Harlesden is this substantial and wonderfully engaging six-bedroom house with studio annexe, large private garden and off-street parking. Having been extended and renovated to approximately 2,350 sq ft, the architect owners have succeeded in creating a colourful, energetic family home that combines versatile open-plan living with the option of privacy.
Internal accommodation is arranged over three levels. Entry is via a hall with storage partition, to an expansive open-plan reception of impressive volume and proportion with oversize skirting and wide-board oak flooring, and a seating area with wood-burning stove. Bay windows at the front and back pour light into the living and dining space and a glazed door opens to the rear decking.
Through separate cased openings is the kitchen which centres around a timber worktop unit. From here there is further access to the side decking and to a self-contained studio annexe with kitchenette, shower room and independent rear access.
On the first floor, within the rear extension, a corridor of storage reaches to two bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate WC. Rising a split level in the original part of the building are two large double bedrooms, both with built-in floating wardrobes, and a study room.
The second floor contains two more large bedrooms separated by a bespoke plywood divider with storage, and a mosaic-tiled shower room with Japanese bathtub.
At the rear, decking extends the length of the extended portion which is clad in the same material, providing a wonderful sense of aesthetic continuity. There is sheltered bike storage on the right and a large lawn garden beyond.
Over the course of the extensive renovation, external walls have been insulated, along with new plumbing and electrical wiring, and all windows installed with sympathetic double glazing.
