Someone has bought my dream house! I went for my usual dog walk yesterday to the beautiful Waterlow Park and went to look at 'my house' and daydream about living there. The house has been up for sale since last year. It is named Winter House and is located on the charming Swains Lane right next door to Highgate Cemetery - go and pay this house a visit. The stunning home was designed and owned by John Winter (1930-2012) a man of great taste and talent, he worked with Charles Eames and had a personal collection of Eames furniture. He then went on to work with Erno Goldfinger before setting up his own practice. Winter house is widely regarded as one of Britain’s most important Modern houses, and is one of only a small handful to be given a Grade II* listing by English Heritage. He lived in the house with his family until his death in November last year.
