Friday Fun: Living in Historical Buildings

Britain is far less open to revolutionary modern architecture when it comes to residential property. A severe case of nostalgia or the result of far too many inadequate poky modern developments? Yet, undeniably, there is a charm to old buildings, especially if they have been sympathetically restored.

This window must have been the former barn door, in this gorgeous renovation from Archer Buchanan.
A conservatory with a difference from Town and Country Living.
Gresgarth Hall with its idyllic waterside setting.
Even better if your historical house has a library, of course, as is the case of Skibo Castle in Scotland, from Vogue Magazine.
A clever new addition that blends in with the old, from DIY Architecture.
