    Lovely place. It feels like the right atmosphere to write a Bronte style gothic novel. The floors with the inlaid flowers are charming.

    I quite agree with the agent’s comment on the ‘human scale’ appeal of this place. It all appears most livable is its spaces and room dimensions. I’d want to purchase most of the present furnishings as well, since they suit the structural ambience. The ‘down’ shot of the staircase has an “Escher” quality about it :->
