Artist Anne Katrine Dolven is selling her award-winning Grade II-listed Victorian villa-with-a-twist in Hackney, said to have the best bathroom in London

Norwegian-born Dolven whose work forms part of prestigious collections including the Arts Council Collection UK and that of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, commissioned London studio 51 Architecture to carry out an extension to the 1860 villa.

They added the timber-clad tower over three storeys that so impressed RIBA in 2008, and which Grand Designs praised as a new-build that avoids the risk of being sterile, while Homebuilding & Renovating magazine declared the bathroom suite the capital’s finest.
