This beautiful £1.45m three-bedroom home in Crouch End, North London, stands on the site of a pair of derelict lock-up garages.

The ingeniously-designed self-build home has two sunken courtyards and generous living spaces made possible by clever space-saving design elements, including pocket doors and a partition that can divide the upper floor.
