Lordship London, N16

about

An unusually large Victorian location 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 checker board 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.

Also available is the Lordship Basement studio space.
