It’s the house of an artist that worked in the area, and apparently kept the place much as it might have if it had been untouched for 100 years. Sort of, maybe? Or it just, you know, ended up like that because he was an artist? Either way …
I’ve actually got family history in Stoke-on-Trent, in those factories, so there’s this kind of feeling for me of looking into a home that I might have had relatives living in back in the day.
I mean, of course, I’ve got world headquarters already in a fixer upper 1920s bachelor craftsman bungalow. But, what a wild ideal of mise en scène one might aspire to in that one!
Anyhow, if you pick up that house in the auction, I know some people who’d love be invited to come over for tea.
