The terrace dates from the late 19th century. With rooms in the attic and the semi-basement, the houses have in fact four floors.
In 1987, the two attic small rooms was made into one large space, now used as an office, with a balcony facing east.
in 2015-16, the house was completely refurbished and rewired. The central heating system was replaced, with a high-efficiency gas boiler, hot-water radiators on three floors and under-floor heating on the garden floor. The brick rear extension was replaced with a steel frame and block-work structure, which re-orientated cooking and dining towards the rear, including full-height and full-width fold-and-slide windows opening onto the patio and garden. A new shower/dressing room was added next to the master bedroom, and a guest bedroom complete with en-suite WC to the semi-basement.
