Cowart's Common Room

Just thought that some of you might like looking at a picture of some tired old domestic architecture, that hasn't travelled a million miles, in the soft light of an autumn evening. As ever, Frances, I am working on the interiors. This was adjacent to the chateau we visited the other day. Weather bright and beautiful. Wish you were all here. Uploaded Image

Patsy's Avatar Is it an old pigeonnier Fennie? An unusual red stone too? Sandstone?
I'm used to white limestone buildings in my part of France.

Fennie's Avatar I don't know what it is, Patsy. We were down in the Averyron. Near Muret le Chateau. The stone is all that colour there. Just like Herefordshire.

Salle de Bain's Avatar Lot of red sandstone like that on Jersey's reflected in local names e.g. 'Redhouses'.

Would love to do that up and live in it...what a view.

Are the little holes where the upper floor timbers went, or are they deliberate openings?

Frances's Avatar Fennie, please do keep on posting these beautiful, dream encouraging, pictures. It's grand to see them as I have my breakfast coffee.
