Michael Harding for The New York Times
In 2007, Eric Guibert, left and Robin Pembrooke, sold their home to buy a 6,000-square-foot former factory building in Kennington, a leafy city neighborhood where warehouses and old factories are mixed in with Georgian and Victorian terraced homes. The four-story, red-brick building, with two bedrooms and three baths, was bought for £1.1 million, then about $2.2 million. On the A-framed fourth floor, Mr. Pembrooke’s collection of 18th- and 19th-century maps and engravings of Kennington decorate the wall.
