An impressive new Grade II listed house with unique Gothic revival features has gone up for sale in Camden for £3.95 million.

The detached house is set over five floors with a vast 4,800sqft of space, boasting no less than six bedrooms. It’s rich in history, having at one point formed part of St. Matthew’s Church, designed by architect John Johnson in 1852, who was later noted for his design of Alexandra Palace in collaboration with Alfred Meeson.

The home’s location is equally distinguished, sitting upon Oakley Square, which is famously named after Oakley House, a seat of the Duke of Bedford who owned the land.

The property has been impeccably restored, and is bursting with quirky features and Gothic revival style; indeed, large Gothic wooden windows allow streams of natural light to flood into the reception room, while the steep pitched roof typical of the revival look is even echoed in the dining chairs.

The vast study also boasts Gothic-style wooden arched windows and decorative pieces that nod to naturalism and the eccentric pieces that are seen throughout the house.

Gothic revivalism is all about embracing individuality and irregularity; inspired by medieval architecture, its decorative, fanciful style conjured a nostalgic look to the past – think turrets, haunted castles and knights in shining armour.

The attic room is a wonderful example, almost resembling a cloisters, while the hallway features an enormous chandelier and wooden panelling that oozes a church-like chic, albeit a modern update. This patterned panelling is also echoed in the wonderfully eclectic bedrooms.
