A Hackney townhouse infused with Georgian design

Restored and renovated in Clapton, Hackney, this end-of-row townhouse celebrates Georgian design.

The five-storey home is located on Eldersfield Road, near the Hackney Marshes. Its current owners have completely renovated it, taking it back to its bricks before rebuilding it into an 3,000 sq ft family home – and adding two storeys to its original design.

A wine store and playroom have been built into the new basement, and the ground floor opened up to create a large living room with sight lines into the rear extension, which houses a large Shaker-style kitchen. Of note are the careful pops of colour—rusty red for the doors and dark green for the kitchen cabinetry, chosen from Farrow & Ball and Little Greene—and the pitched ceiling with exposed rafters.

Period-appropriate tongue-and-groove panelling and aged plank floors have been installed, and the house’s original five fireplaces have all been retained. Lighting has been carefully considered throughout the home, with a mix of lamps, picture lights, and wall sconces casting atmospheric glows.

Upstairs are six bedrooms, including the main suite with bespoke joinery and an ensuite complete with a fireplace. Not to be outdone, the top-floor bedroom has French doors that open onto a quiet balcony overlooking the rooftops.

Finally, Emily Ffrench Blake and Will Carr designed the London property’s brick-walled garden, which includes a traditional greenhouse for growing vegetables and a herringbone brick terrace. Raised beds and low-maintenance planting—herbaceous perennials, climbing vines, and Japanese maples—add a burst of colour.

Inigo is selling the six-bedroom Hackney home for £2.5m. Take a look inside.

The lounge features a working fireplace original to the building, and built-in bespoke cabinetry.
