I am reviewing a nice post by Freshome here, take a look.
Who wouldn’t adore an aged but magnificent place for living? I bet nobody will say no, especially if the house has been carefully redecorated with modern touch. Maintaining the old form while building the new part next to it results in a breathtaking mixture of old versus new. Occupying 213 square meters of ground in an area near London, the residence has been more than ideal to be inhabited by a family of four or five. Moreover, the house stands near the translucent Grand Union Canal which offers naturally astonishing beauty for those witnessing it. An innovative and inspiring architect named Michael Wigginton was in charge of remodeling the old 18th-centuries country house and transforming it into something fresh and astounding.
Now, let’s explore what’s inside the house. It certainly has 4 bedrooms with bathrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, and reception rooms. The floor is made of wood with various pattern, setting up the notion that the residence is warm enough to be lived in. this very image of warmth is supported by a furry carpet fitted in the family room. There is a long dining table—with two classic candelabras being put on it—placed just before the huge window glass, enabling the whole family members to have their meals while enjoying the river panorama. Simple but endearing, elegant bedrooms with classical touch are placed in each of the rooms and, if we take a look at the white bathtubs, they somehow resemble those appearing on old movies.
Stepping our feet outside, a neat paved terrace is ready to welcome us to feel the world. If we move around a bit, both middle-sized front and side garden offers us certain sense of serenity to which we will always want to come back over and over again. Even though we stay inside the house, we can directly enjoy the stunning scenery of our surroundings through large glass windows. Last but not least, everything, every corner, and every inch of this 18th-century country house is nothing but highly admirable. So, is there anyone of you who doesn’t believe that this is such a perfect place for living?
