By now, our fondness for The Modern House, the UK real estate agency that seems to have no shortage of enviable listings, has been well-documented (for a sampling of recent posts we’ve written that originated from their site, go here, here, and here). So we were intrigued when their team sent word of a new venture, an offshoot that specializes in historic homes across Britain.

Inigo, named after the 17th-century English architect and designer Inigo Jones (a “self-taught genius who kick-started a golden age of home design,” according to the site), launched just last week. Among the grand Victorians, Tudors, and Edwardians listed was a more modest two-bedroom townhouse in East London that thoroughly charmed us.

Scroll down to take a tour of the small home, which, as it turns out, is owned by a designer, Jen Pelzig (of Parsnip Design), and her husband, Jack.

Jen and Jack Pelzig share the 950-square-foot two-bedroom house with their toddler son. An arched window in the living room looks out onto the street.
