3844 - Modern Classic

50 images 1 2 3 4 »

This classical architect works for one of the country's rare classical practices, Robert Adam, and although he admits to a desire to one day build his own home, for now he's content with what he has - this charming, three storey house in a leafy Winchester street. Built in the late 1800s, it's part of an attractive row of four pairs of externally identical properties. "The peace and solitude evaporates when my two boys come to stay," he explains. "Otherwise the house is extremely peaceful and condusive to work." The owner has done little to change the house's original layout, save for moving the kitchen from a small back room to a bigger location on the ground floor, which has been knocked through to embrace an open plan dining room. The basement houses a sitting room and guest quarters, and upstairs there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. But it's the kitchen and it's adjacent dining room in which the architect spends nearly all of his free time, mostly drawing. Writer Ruth Corbett - ruth971@btinternet.com
