Enjoy a tour of this early Victorian home with a quirky Tudor tower attached

We love a quirky home here at Ideal Home, so this Victorian home really speaks to us– with its quirky octagonal tower. The intriguing five-bed house is located in the heart of Canonbury, London.

In addition to the vast bedrooms the property comprises two generous reception rooms, dining room and a garden room. Safe to say it’s not short of living space.

Interestingly the house consists of two parts that are adjoined. Firstly a detached house c.1855 and then a two storey C16th tower. The octagonal tower was originally built as a garden room for Canonbury House.

The galley kitchen is fairly small for a house of its size, but it’s big enough to provide a stylish space in which to work. We love the paint idea to highlight the shelves, adding a burst of colour without overwhelming the all-white kitchen.

Residing in the characterful octagonal tower is this interesting dining space. The neutral dining scheme is perfectly subdued, to allow the architecture to speak for itself.

This pink bedroom has us considering repainting our own four walls. An interesting use of storage as a makeshift ‘zoning wall’ is certainly food for thought. In such a big bedroom space it makes sense to create more defined living spaces, from sleeping to social.

Garden room

This glorious conservatory is located at the back of the property, directly off the kitchen. It offers the ideal space for relaxing with a cuppa, surrounding by the soothe sight of nature.
