Secondly, the house has been thoroughly renovated. But again, that’s not the disaster it could be. Yes, there is a (very) modern kitchen and breakfast area here, but beyond that, everything is fairly plain and neutral, with the maintained windows keeping the character alive.

Art deco for the modern family and a house I certainly wouldn’t mind moving into.
