Rescue Me Please :: I'm 1950s with porthole windows :: What would you do?
This rather interesting little triple fronted, cream brick 1950s home is up for auction tomorrow.
And though I rather suspect the bulldozers will be called in, sadly,
it would be lovely to think that it will be rescued and reimagined for a new age.
It got my attention because of the fabulous wrought iron staircase,
I'm just itching to get my paws on that!
New paint, new flooring, new artwork, new lighting all required,
but it's rather sculptural don't you think?
And those 9 porthole windows (from the front elevation in the top photo)
pop in to say hello in the dining room.
Oh that is fun!
A concrete parapet between the ground and upper floors picks up those nice horizontal lines.
And I think I spy a cocktail terrace - do you see it?
So, if this were your little baby,
what you do to it to add glamour and oomph,
to make it a fabulous home?
