Inside a quirky stable conversion in South London

The past is present at this rustic converted stable in south London’s Canning Cross mews – part of the Camberwell Grove Conservation area.

Wooden doors lead into the living room of London property, which sits on a row of brick mews on a cobbled road. This duck-egg blue entrance offering a taste of things to come inside, where walls are clad in vertical timber slats, painted in the same shade with white uppers above the old timber beams.

A skylight in the pitched roof draws light into the lower level, where there’s a kitchen and living room area. The old haylofts have been re-interpreted as a bedroom at each end of the building, and these simple, spartan spaces are set beneath the eaves and connected by a suspended walkway reached by a metal staircase.

The Canning Stable is for sale via The Modern House for £850,000 and presently belongs to a carpenter and metalworker, whose craftsmanship is imbued in every surface of the south London home. The result is deliciously quirky and unique – an inspiring live/work space.

There's a plethora of volumes and scales at play inside the property despite its flowing open layout
