Real home: quirky East London period home packed with clever design ideas and vintage finds

Back in 2018, when Lisa O’Hagan and her husband Jonathan stumbled across their current home in central east London, it was the quirky shapes and unconventional layout that caught their eye. Once a Georgian carriage house, the terrace-end property has been converted into a large ground-floor garage and studio, with the two-bedroom property spanning the two floors above.

“It seems to offer more than a regular house, with three distinct exterior spaces – a cobblestone courtyard, a roof terrace and a back garden,” said Lisa. ‘The plot at the end of the terrace is wedge-shaped and narrows almost to a point at the end of the garden. This gives the layout a unique charm. Rather than expanding, we saw the potential to create something very special.
