Plascon House Tour: A Modern Church Transformation
Step inside this beautiful retreat in Kensal Green – once a traditional place of worship, now majestically transformed into a bold, modern family home.
Ever dreamed of living in a sacred building? Well, now you can as this elegantly renovated church takes on new life and is now for sale in Kensal Green. The interiors are flawless, boasting the original windows and high ceilings from its former life. Internal arches and stained glass windows add to the charm of this one-of-a-kind home.
Once a public space and a sanctuary, today this home boasts four-bedrooms and over 6000ft of living space, with jaw-dropping interiors that mesmerize. A gorgeous central hall opens up onto an enclosed courtyard and the overall feel is one of grandeur and elegance.
In the entryway, a conical-roofed turret adds character and a striking bronze staircase spiral upward toward a galleried study space overlooking the living expanse below. We love the monochromatic tones in this space, with a showstopping chandelier that takes pride of place above the stairway.
From the hall, an elegant Italian-tiled floor leads left to a pantry and guest WC, and right into the arresting reception space, comprising kitchen, dining, and formal and informal living areas.
Modern finishes are used to complement the vintage style of the architecture. Blackened oak-parquet flooring also extends across the open plan areas with underfloor heating throughout.
Striking metallic accents add character in the kitchen. Polished-concrete worktops give it an unrefined yet elegant finish with industrial cabinets clad in copper-coloured zinc. Far from conventional, yet oozing sophistication.
The bedrooms are tranquil and contemporary, featuring calming palettes and modern amenities. The master bedroom is found on the second floor. It is entered through a dressing area and set beneath an incredible vaulted ceiling with several skylights that flood the space with natural light.
This home is for sale via The Modern House.
