Kenwood: external and internal architecture, part6: east side.



And so, with grinding inevitability, to the front of the house. Is the room above the entrance, much evident in Joe's video, the same one seen in that shot of Julian and John on the bed? What about the front door? I'm pretty sure it's the same piece of wood as in John's time - except now it opens at the other side. And why not? This, after all, is a building where, over the years, windows mysteriously move 2 feet to the right, swimming pools re-appear at different angles, odd rumours abound...not to mention odd blogs and bloggers.
UPDATE - It's not the same door, which explains why it opens on the other side. The original one was replaced in the mid-90s, along with almost everything else. So it goes.
