Attic window

Previously I have admired the ordered symmetry of the front of Selby House but I like the side too, and for different reasons. The side facing Ham Street is a large expanse of dark red brick, typical of the area, and is rich with charm and history. This is a house that is confident, secure and homely.

The only door or window that dares to interrupts this flow of bricks is right at the top of the house squeezed in between two chimneys. One can imagine a mad relative imprisoned in the attic whose only view of the world is through that window.
