The beauty of contrast
22nd March 2013

We’re big fans of properties which combine the appeal of a period exterior with modern interior styling and panache.

It’s not to say that we don’t appreciate period style decor and original features, we do, but there’s just something about contrast.

So we’ve decided to show you an example of a period townhouse which does just that.

This property backs on to the ‘Racecourse’ in Northampton and is available to purchase, should you so desire.  If not, have a nosey anyway!
