A toughened glass roof drenches the interiors of this south London home in light while paying homage to its industrial roots as a coach house.
The two-bedroom Deptford property is located behind a row of late Victorian houses, off a private courtyard, and is believed to pre-date the surrounding architecture. The equivalent of a modern garage, it would have been used to store a horse carriage before it was converted for residential use in the 1970s.
Thankfully its owners appreciated the value of its history: brickwork has been exposed throughout and painted in places, while the ground floor spaces feature open raftered ceilings, with a vast reinforced skylight roof installed above the kitchen and dining room.
Unique Property Company has the listing for the Deptford house, which is asking for £795,000.
A nursery and utility/workshop space complete the ground floor, with a brick-clad staircase leading up to the mezzanine, where the main bedroom and built-in storage is set beneath the vaulted ceiling. The green-tiled family bathroom, with a Japanese soaking tub, is located opposite.
