This elegant terrace house (or townhouse) in east London’s Forest Gate neighborhood combines the best of traditional architecture, rustic country charm, and contemporary updates. Carefully renovated and upgraded with new heating and electric systems, the bright 3,840-square-foot residence offers a whopping eight bedrooms, double reception area with high ceilings, a formal dining room over three spacious floors (plus an unfinished basement), and a large garden.

Delightful antique and otherwise salvaged details figure throughout the home, including exquisite crown molding, gorgeous floors—stripped-wood in the living area and wide-plank boards salvaged from old church pews in the kitchen (which also features an archway salvaged from a church conservatory and a recessed Aga stove), multiple fireplaces, and exposed brick.

The bedrooms are divided among the top two floors, with a bathroom on each plus a study on one of them, and a skylight at the top of the stairs that illuminates the rest of the home. Located on Sprowston Road, it’s asking £1,500,000, or around $1,908,000.
