The existing 2-storey, 3-bedroom house in an Islington canal-side development was dark and cramped. Our client wanted to enlarge and upgrade the property, so we added two storeys and transformed it into a high-spec 3/4-bedroom, 4-bathroom townhouse.

The smart new entrance hall sets the tone for the whole house. The open-tread timber staircase runs up through the floors and the muted colour scheme, quality wood finishes and contemporary fittings continue throughout.

On the ground floor, matching bespoke French doors give access to the living room and kitchen. Get Turner’s joiner designed, hand-made and installed the oak units and Quartz worktop in the kitchen. The herringbone oak flooring in the living room is replicated in all bedrooms and reception rooms, adding another touch of coordinated style.

The first floor has a large bedroom, study, shower room and bathroom and there are two further bedrooms and a shower room on the second floor. On the top floor, there is a ‘family room’ and further shower room, and large sliding doors which open onto a long balcony with stunning views.

Bespoke joinery was a big feature of this project and, as well as the kitchen, our joiner also made and installed floor-to-ceiling wardrobes in all bedrooms and vanity units in the bathrooms. Air conditioning units were fitted throughout and we also created a patio area at the rear and landscaped the front garden, to complete the transformation.

The finished house is now twice the size and many times more luxurious than the original!
