On the Market: A Historic House Reimagined for a Modern Family in Stroud, England

March 6, 2016

Today we’re introducing a new On the Market weekend column for real estate voyeurs; we’ll be scouring the listings to find interesting properties for sale. First up: An old silk merchant’s house in Stroud, Gloucestershire, renovated by London theater designer Niki Turner (see her former house here). Niki filled us in on some of the specifics (paint colors, etc.); go to The Modern House to see the full listing.
