Think raw materials look cold? Think again. This east London terrace is warm and inviting - and ready to move into.

Located in Leyton, this bright four-bedroom house was extended and renovated in 2016. There's even a large garden and studio at the rear - ideal for home working.

Whatever modern architectural styles you're into, there's plenty of inspiration to be had here.


The ground-floor hallway is lined with original tiles, which were carefully restored by the current owner, leading through, via a steel-framed door with wire-mesh glazing, to the expansive open-plan kitchen, living and dining rooms.


Many of the original features have been cleverly and sensitively preserved, including an exposed brick chimney breast, cornices and raw plaster on the ceilings.


These elements have been complemented by the addition of a wood-burning stove and cast-iron radiators.

A second reception room has a beautiful marble fireplace and leads through to the dining area and kitchen.


The kitchen and dining area is in the new extended portion of the property, where there's polished concrete underfoot and sections of exposed brick walls.

A skylight over the dining area and two skylights over the kitchen keep the space feeling fresh and bright.


The kitchen worktops are polished concrete and the units are of stained beech-ply, which has a cool raw textured look.


The kitchen opens out via glazed doors on to a beautiful garden with raised planters, a pizza oven and barbeque area, and a wonderful home studio with a large cellar, perfect for garden equipment storage.


The master bedroom is at the front of the house with exposed boards underfoot, raw plaster along one wall, a further wood-burning stove and built-in wardrobes.


The family bathroom has a bespoke steel-framed shower, free-standing cast-iron bath, marble micro tiles underfoot and white Carrara marble sink tops.


The second floor has two further bedrooms, each with oak parquet underfoot.
