I'll admit that when I hear about a beautiful old home getting "re-imagined with modern sensibilities", I cringe a little. Why pay a premium for an older home if you are going to change it completely? But I'll eat my words with this one. A beautiful marriage of old and new.

I'll even admit that they did accent walls with panache here (something I'm not usually a big fan of) The glass wall in the back solves the light problem that every old townhouse suffers from while the extension makes the space expansive inside. Swoon. The only thing I don't love is the kitchen - it's nice but it seems to lack the imagination and character seen in the rest of the house.
What do you think? Do you like the modern surprises inside or would you rather something more classic?
