A railway station


I have been getting ready for winter, having just purchased a cosy rug and throw, so I should be moving on from sunny images - but when I saw this home I could not possibly wait until spring to share. It is a disused railway station - isn't it brilliant? The huge doors out onto the platform are amazing and fill the room with so much light, and I love the original 'gentleman' sign. And, I so wish I could befriend the owners - the train sitting alongside the platform is actually guest accommodation! The platform even has an antique tea advertisement... This charming home is the home of Country Living's editor Susy Smith, and there are more photographs of the house at their website, here.

I've actually never seen anything like this, the guest train is amazing.

I wish I knew the owner so I could stay here in summer!

So so beautiful.

Better stay anonymous! said...

wow, how cool is that... and so original - not many people can claim to live in an ex- railway station!
