From the Agent: "This striking three-bedroom, single-story house has been artfully reimagined by Niki Borowiecki. Exacting attention to detail paired with a refined material palette has established polished living spaces connected to one another and the outdoors. A central courtyard, teeming with greenery, draws light deep within the house throughout the day and serves as a sociable garden at the center of the house. The cafes, restaurants, and parks of Crystal Palace and Gipsy Hill are a short walk away."

Striking black soffits and window frames contrast with the light-colored brick facade. An elegant glass portico above the main entrance adds contemporary flair to the 1960s structure.
