If walls could talk this detached Georgian home would have a thing or two to say. ‘In the 1950s it was used as a base for nurses working the night shift and in the 1970s, it was a renowned party house. There are rumours that Jimi Hendrix turned up here to join the fun!’ says the owners. The couple moved to the property just 18 months ago with their two children.

Because it’s a Grade-II listed building, renovations were restricted, but the couple have given the home its own unique slant with their inventive decorating ideas. It was the giant, airy rooms, oversized windows and idiosyncratic Greek-revival style (think columns and ornate embellishment) that became popular in homes during the 1800s, and that most attracted them to the property.
