Cleverly Snuck










The way that ancient buildings like this one get gently coaxed into the future by clever architects and skilled tradesmen really blows my mind.

This home now offers the best of both worlds, a stunning old building with modern comforts and clean lines. I particularly like the contrast between the old timbers in the hallway and the ever so slightly 70's pine lining fitting out the bedroom spaces.

But that terrace with its copper lined wall and the views so cleverly snuck into the roof elevation - genius.

You have such a good understanding of architecture! You notice things that I don't even understand. This is a remarkable home, I couldn't live in it but I can appreciate it..Rachaelxx

When I read your last comment I realised with a flash that you obviously have a fabulous grasp of architecture and how it works. A stunning property - looks very livable and unassuming while still being beautiful and serene. And what a view!

You'd never know from looking at the outside what a stylish interior this house would have. I think its so clever how people are able to mix old and new so well.

Love the old wood and stone with the modern furnishings.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am honored. I have been hooked on The Diversion Project for awhile. It's . . . a diversion for sure.
