Kenwood: external and internal architecture, part 5 - south end.



The southern end of Kenwood, with that small room or sitting room or library or study or whatever it is or was to the bottom left. (UPDATE - it was, in actual fact, the den.) Above that in 2006 sat the study. There was, apparently, an upstairs study during the John-era, but it wasn't in this position. (I know I previously said it was, but it should be fairly obvious by now that at least half the time I am talking "pish".) (FURTHER UPDATE: This area was actually a dressing room during the Lennon era, and formed part of the master bedroom.) To the right of the '06 study is what appears to be another room, but which was actually a landing at the head of some stairs leading up from the ground floor. (FURTHER FURTHER UPDATE: Between these two, however, sat the en-suite bathroom.) Yet again, the excitement of all this is almost unboirable.
