We have been in our new abode for just over a month now.
I am enjoying the way that old things can look good in their new environment.
You will notice that we have a short fence. That means my 81 year old neighbour can come out and enjoy a chitchat while we peg the washing on.
According to my Mr Google's references the house was probably built just after the war and is a Streamline Moderne crossed with a little suburban box house.
When I went looking with his prompting I found lots of art-deco features:
port hole windows, a symmetrical front with rounded corners and the correct cornices and original art deco door plates.
Rooms have been modified and added on over time and the horrible plastic wall covering attached to the exterior but this new to us house is still very appealing.
