Architect: Emoli Petroschka Architects
This remarkable semi-detached house, redesigned by Emoli Petroschka Architects, occupies a superior corner plot overlooking the green spaces of Tiverton Green. With five bedrooms and gardens to the side and rear, the house measures around 2,874 sqft internally.
The layout of the house has been completely reconfigured to maximise the dynamic space. The entrance has been moved to a central position, opening onto a lateral space that is separated into a double reception room to the right, and a sociable kitchen / dining area to the left. The dining space has a dramatic double-height ceiling and bi-fold door access to the rear garden. A raw-brick chimney stack connects the dining area with a more intimate reception room / snug, and separate study, positioned on the mezzanine level above.
The kitchen is arranged around a reclaimed wooden island, made from church pews, that abuts the brick chimney. To one side, and behind a sliding door, is the utility room and prep kitchen/pantry.
Beyond a large hall storage cupboard is a WC and a central staircase that leads to the first-floor bedrooms, of which there are two, and two adjacent family bathrooms.
The upper-level bedrooms are housed in the roof, a space that is augmented by two symmetrical dormer windows that introduce impressive amounts of natural light. On one side, a playful staircase ascends to two children’s bedrooms. On the other, is another staircase that reaches the master bedroom, which has an en-suite bathroom and large dressing room. There is a link door between the children’s bedrooms and the master dressing room, that can be reinstated.
The house is conveniently located between Kensal Rise and Queens Park. Both areas have an excellent selection of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. There is a well-established framers’ market that takes place every Sunday. The green spaces of Queens Park are a short stroll away, particularly popular with local families, whilst Tiverton Park is well known amongst dog walkers.
The closest station is Kensal Rise, running London Overground services to Highbury & Islington and Stratford in on direction, and Richmond in the other. Nearby Queens Park is on the Bakerloo Line. The Westway provides easy road access out of London and Heathrow Airport.
