Kenwood: first floor.







One of the more intriguing parts of Joe Baiardi's Kenwood video (and for those that are intrigued by these kinds of things, these are the kinds of things that intrigue them). I couldn't figure out which bit of Kenwood it shows, until I spotted the external window corresponding to the internal rocking horse shot. What we are seeing here constituted, in 2006, the study, dressing room, en-suite bathroom, and, through the door to the left, the master bedroom. Of course estate agent photographers earn their money by making everywhere look huge, but it is amazing to compare Joe's video with the shots from 2006. The '06 master bedroom looks tiny in the video. If the latest round of guesswork is correct (and I may be on the point of getting some definitive answers on that - watch this space) then the area in front of the left hand doorway, which comprised the en-suite bathroom in '06, could well have been the master bedroom in the John-era, with Julian's room through the wall on the right hand side.
