Victorian school buildings are coveted for conversion thanks to their capacious scale and hardy period features, as this London dwelling attests.
The current owners have painted rooms a crisp shade of white, including exposed brickwork and ceiling beams in the double height living room. Here there are also arched windows and a period fireplace.
Bedrooms fill the mezzanine-level: the master suite looks out onto the living room via a glass opening, with the second bedroom tucked next door.
At the opposite end of the 2,306 sq ft London property – now on the market via The Modern House for £2.495m – is a light-filled, soaring studio space and kitchen.
Outside there’s a cobbled courtyard, complete with annex for guests, which backs onto Vauxhall City Farm. It’s also close to Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, which date back to the 17th century and were mentioned in the diaries of Samuel Pepys.
