I’ll Take This… House

What’s not to love about this house? The colour’s perfect. The detailing is classic. The location, overlooking the harbour in Falmouth, England is brilliant. Dream Home FalmouthWhat do you think?

  1. At first I thought it was perfectly symmetrical, but at second glance the right side of windows is slightly farther right than the left which I think makes it interesting. I love the color of the house and the combination of windows. Pretty door too.

  8. First alteration would be to remove the terrible terrible railings!

  9. OTL... I removed an unsightly lamp-post in front, but my photoshop skills are not sufficient to remove the entire fence. Would you rather have nothing or some plantings?

  11. I think a higher brick-work wall with a good central gate and white Portland stone copings along the top. this would then be planted from the garden side and clipped close and square.

    One would also need to get rid of the tarmac / metalled drive in front of the house....do you know of Todd Longstaffe-Gowan' house( http://www.tlg-landscape.co.uk/page24.htm).....having said tha, I've an inkling you may have written about him in the past?????

    Anyway, you get the idea?
