London property designed by artist Alex Chinneck hits the market for £1.5m

Where old meets new

A Victorian house with interiors by artist Alex Chinneck has hit the market in London for £1.5m.

Chinneck has made a name for himself creating architectural sculptures that play with perception, but his interiors are a more eclectic affair…

Set over 3,840 sq ft, the late Victorian/early 20th century London propertyon the market via The Modern House – blurs old with new. Bold colours jibe with exposed brickwork and stripped wooden floors across its three storeys, while rooms feature high ceilings throughout.

Chinneck also installed salvaged materials inside the home: an antique archway rescued from a church conservatory straddles the hallway, while walnut cabinets, granite worktops and an Aga have been added in the kitchen.

Bedrooms and work studios are spread over the first and second floors, while the 570 sq basement is ripe for conversion…

Forest Gate is preparing for the arrival of the Elizabeth high speed train line in 2018, which will whizz commuters to Liverpool Street in just 13 minutes.
