Lordship London, N16

about

An unusually large victorian house spread over four distinctly styled floors,

Level 1, 60’s futuristic, white, light, cavernous space, sophisticated, cool, disco vibe.

Level 2, french grandeur, elegant 50ft reception room with 11ft ceilings and fantastic natural light, antique chateau panelling, working fireplaces, decorating allowed.

Level 3, feminine, light and airy interconnecting rooms with french doors to pretty roof terrace, two fireplaces, ornate plaster panelling.

Level 4, glamorous james bond bedroom,fab 70’s bed, 15ft beaten copper wall, groovy props.

Garden, large varied space, romantic iron gazebo, original 1960’s architectural seating/sculptural installation the garden has been approached in the same way. An ancient, wisteria-clad, iron arcade leads to a herb and flower garden presided over by a fancy lead-roofed, cupola from an old school. In another area a shiny, white flying saucer (a seating unit from munich airport circa 1967) rests alongside a bed of huge hydrangeas.

From the owner: Four floors, ranging in style from louis xv panelled rooms with tapestries and candelabras to groovy, all-white, 1960s nightclub with curved, futuristic doorways and a spectacular checkerboard light installation. The house had been converted into four flats Рone on each floor. We started with the reception floor and gradually bought the others over a period of twenty years. We have designed, decorated and furnished it ourselves with a mixture of junk shop, auction and ebay finds. We are always on the lookout for interesting things. Most spectacular finds have been; four ornately embellished panels from france; an over-sized, double front door from a house in amsterdam and a 1970s chandelier from a london casino. We really like mixing things up. Different styles from different decades Рeven different centuries. We could never settle on one look for the whole house.
