Real home: quirky East London period home packed with clever

1 Like comments off

When Lisa O’Hagan and her husband, Jonathan, stumbled across their now home in the heart of East London back in 2018, it was the quirky shape and unconventional layout that caught their eye. This end-of-terrace property used to be a Georgian coach house, which had been converted into a large, ground-floor garage and studio, with a two-bedroom property spanning the two floors above. 

‘It seemed to offer more than the average house, with three different outside spaces – a cobbled courtyard, roof terrace and a back garden,’ says Lisa. ‘The end-of-terrace plot was wedge-shaped, narrowing almost to a point at the end of the garden. This gave the layout a unique charm. Rather than extending, we saw the potential to create something very special.’
