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. Newly added is a 15ft beaten copper wall feature.

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, for private use only. Not available for hire.

The garden, a large varied space, romantic iron gazebo, original 1960’s architectural seating/sculptural installation. 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.

Three 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 – one on each floor. The owners started with the reception floor and gradually bought the others over a period of twenty years. The space has been designed, decorated and furnished with a mixture of junk shop, auction and ebay finds.

Some of the 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. The owners love to mix things up. Different styles from different decades – even different centuries.
