Whether you’ve been on the hunt in real life or in your dreams for an extraordinary London pied-à-terre that satisfies your desire for a home that melds classic and contemporary design, this townhouse in Central Barnsbury might just be the one.

The corner residence, recently renovated by Paul Archer Design, features three floors “interjected” with half levels. Upon entering on the ground floor, you are greeted by a double reception room outfitted with exquisite original crown molding, Pierre Frey fabric-covered walls, oak floors, and a gas fireplace.

A half level down leads to a tiled bathroom, then below that is the garden level, which contains a bedroom wallpapered with Cole & Son’s “Fontainebleau,” a living room adorned with Timorous Beasties wallpaper, and below that a half level down—as seen from the gallery rails of the aforementioned space—the incredible marble-and-stainless-steel modern kitchen and dining area, all of which opens onto a terrace garden.

The master bedroom, located on the top floor, is also outfitted with wallpaper—this time by House of Hackney—matching curtains, “vintage haberdashery units,” and reclaimed parquet flooring. A second double-height bedroom with loft space is also found on this floor.

Pulling out all the stops, the townhouse, located on Hemingford Road in central Barnsbury, is offered at £3.5 million, or approximately $4.53 million.
