Inigo: A New Agency to Put on Your Real Estate Stalking List

March 15, 2021

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.
