An Edwardian home in Golders Green, North London. Featured on George Clarke's Old House New Home on Channel 4 broadcast in November 2018. George described it as a huge Edwardian home with an identity crisis.
Watch the 90 second programme highlights in the video above or watch the full episode on the Channel 4 website here.
The owners Chris & Lauren inherited the house pretty much in the same style as when the previous owners moved in in the 1980's.
They now wanted the space to work for a growing family for the next 30 to 40 years.
The biggest challenge in this family home was uniting the two downstairs extensions each with a different roofline, they housed the 70's utility room, 1980's kitchen and long dark dining area.
Chris & Lauren already had planning permission to replace the two extensions with one full width.
George suggested opening up the downstairs space with an open plan kitchen, living, dining area.
Three industrial style metal framed doors were recommended by George to be sourced from Marlin Windows Alitherm Heritage Aluminium Door range.
"Beautiful doors" says George
"Really happy with those doors" says homeowner Lauren

George: The biggest challenge in this family home was uniting the two downstairs extensions each with a different roofline, they housed the 70's utility room, 1980's kitchen and long dark dining area.
And this is your new kitchen dining room
Chris & Lauren: Wow
George: I'm delighted that Chris and Lauren took my advice and knocked down the walls to create one large open plan space.
My big ideas for the downstairs were to put in three full height metal framed doors and two generous skylights above the kitchen island and dining area, flooding the space with light.
And what a kitchen
George: What an island unit, look at the size of it. And what a place to stand, you can look up and see the sky
George: You look back all the way through your hallway and see through the glazed doors, just opens up the whole space
and look left through those beautiful doors out on to the garden
Lauren: Really happy with those doors actually
George: and onto your dining area
This area breaks down into 3 distinct zones, kitchen, dining and living room. And it's great to see the iconic Chesterfield sofa commanding the space.
