This riverside home on the outskirts of London underwent a meticulous renovation, striking a balance between urban and rural living. The restoration respected the building’s historical charm while adapting it for a young family’s weekend escape. A light-filled orangery extension now functions as a serene living space with garden and river views. The house features a library and an Art Deco-style bar in previously awkward spaces. Glazed ceramic floor tiles play with light, while a rich colour palette sets unique moods in each room. The garden connects harmoniously with the river, offering terraced lawns, a boat jetty, an outdoor kitchen, and a scenic pergola for dining and relaxation. The Riverside House by Nicola Harding.
