Wrought Iron Lace & Carrara Marble...

With the romance of wrought iron lace on the balcony
and exquisite finials on the facade,
this 1870s terrace has a gentle charm about it.
Alfresco dining terraces are always appealing, 
especially when there is a little rustic brick involved. 
The white French doors lead onto a balcony,
which would be a heavenly spot for breakfast brioche & lattes.
Ornate ceilings & skirtings & patterned air vents
create that little touch of intricate detail which makes these older 
properties so pleasant for the eye to linger.
Painted in the softest shade of palest powder blue,
the front door sits under a stunning arched fanlight of rose red glass.

Simple white shutters open to the garden terrace,
in an ever-so-inviting fashion.
