Visit a Brick Row House Updated for Modern Life

Looking for more openness in their narrow Victorian brick row house, this U.K. couple reached out to Michael Parinchy of Probuild360. What followed was a major renovation that saw the home taken down to the bare brick structure. Walls came down, flooring came out. And Parinchy added a new roof and built a contemporary extension off the back. The juxtaposition of the old Victorian front facade and the modern back one is a feeling that extends into the interiors, where traditional elements like herringbone wood flooring contrast beautifully with sleek contemporary bathrooms and modern home automation features.

It was so beautiful I cried. Just about perfect! I'm lost for words. All I can think of is can I move in.

Beautiful design!! Simple yet classy. The Black kitchen is very sophisticated. The Black accents throughout catch the eyes as you look around the room. Love the floorplan and color scheme reminds me of my own home. Well done!!!

Love when charming period homes beautifully merge with contemporary design. Oh and that piano bar, very neat!

Would love to hear more about the decision to choose patio doors rather than bifolding!

You have done a beautiful reno! The exterior retains the classic row house feel in front. The interior mixes new and old nicely. The main bathroom is a bit stark for me, but with some art and colored towels and throw rugs, it would suit me just fine. The green wall in the master bedroom is a great color.

I really liked the way the combination of traditional and modern was used here, which is usually lacking in America but common in Europe. Use of windows and lighting really makes a difference in how open and bright the rooms feel. The entry bench at first seemed like it would be in the way of the traffic flow but then I saw how practical it would be. I was surprised by the radiators in the master which is a very striking statement and I’m wondering if it works rather than placing them horizontally under the window.
