This rambling, quiet, light filled house in the Wiltshire countryside reminds me so much of the Tallis’ home from Ian McEwan’s book Atonement. Can’t you just tell by the gentle light that the home is in the countryside and not the city?
Oh, just imagine running through that kitchen door on a wet day, greeted by a warm fire and a homely spread on the table! Curling up with a good book in that parlour or snuggling into that bed surrounded by roses. Is there anything better in life?
