Brooksby Street, Islington, London N1

Our Client purchased this terrace property in Islington and, having just returned from five years in South-East Asia, embarked upon a major refurbishment and rebuilding programme to create a high-specification dwelling with an Oriental feel.

The exterior of the property was retained and carefully restored to its original design. The interior of the house, which had retained none of its original features, was stripped out to create a crisp modern interior with a glass and steel staircase, stone floors, and fully-integrated technology including data, music and TV throughout.

The garden was completely redesigned to create a calm oasis with a reflecting pool and Oriental-style ‘tea house’ for entertaining.
