North Road 2, Highgate

This Grade II listed house has been substantially extended over the years. The original 1840s cottage fronting onto North Road may have once been an outbuilding for the wealthy occupants of a nearby Georgian house, and still has the original hoist on its front.

At some point the cottage was connected to an adjacent cottage at the rear. This was achieved through the addition of a large lofty single storey room lit with an elaborate central rooflight.

Our work involved the total refurbishment of the house. We redesigned the layout of the original front cottage to provide two bedrooms and a new bathroom on the first floor, and incorporated a new master bedroom suite and a stairway.
