London has a long history of reinventing itself. Listed water towers, churches, barns and warehouses often have stunning original character features that could create unique, modern living spaces.

Thanks to ambitious renovators and creative architects, many of the city’s most interesting buildings have been transformed into quirky and innovative homes.

We take a property tour to discover 10 of London’s most unusual homes, including a bijou barn conversion in the heart of Brockley with a secluded courtyard garden; an award-winning, ultra-modern renovation in Nunhead, and a 1,783sqft lateral penthouse flat within a warehouse conversion near Southfields.

The Brockley "barn"
This unique, secluded home in the heart of Brockley was built around 1875 and was originally used as horse stables, and more recently as a car dealership. The property was granted residential status in 2000 and was transformed into one of London's most unique homes.

Inside, there is a separate galley kitchen, bathroom, and a mezzanine bedroom overlooking a spacious reception room, with glass doors opening to a secluded 43ft courtyard garden and terrace. Brockley train station is a five-minute walk away.
