3 of the best Arts & Crafts homes for sale in north London
- Credit: Archant
A distinctively British style of architecture, Arts & Crafts gained popularity in the late nineteenth century - when urbanisation was eating up large swathes of previously rural north London.
The style revolved around the use of traditional forms and local materials, often incorporating traditional building and craft skills, while creating a resolutely modern architecture.
Most Arts & Crafts buildings are domestic, and often include carved or tiled decoration or even sculpture, often full of symbolism.
Here are some of the best examples on the market at the moment.
