    Default In England, a Former Factory to Call Home


    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.

    No, just ugh. I would have gone much further with the renovating. I couldn't stand to live in something that still looks so much like a factory.

    Yup, I agree. This is pretty bad imo.

    That's 6000 sq feet?!?! The building looks so narrow, so it must be incredibly looooooooong.

    It's hideous. The windows in the bathroom look like what I would imagine jail windows would look like. And have they done anything to that horrible exterior in the backyard other than slap down a table and chairs?

    UGH.
    Is it Happy Hour yet?

    The only things I like are the kitchen island and the claw foot tub. The rest is shit, especially that jacked up garden.

    the decor sucks but it's an awesome space.
    i like a messy garden so i don't mind theirs.
