Artamus Hall

As I mentioned earlier today, I had to share with you all a few photos of Priscilla Glover and Ivan Spaller's home. This is really quite astonishing, hence right up their alley. I am (on a rare occasion) rendered speechless. It is a High Tudor house that we have named Artamus Hall. Attached are pics of the facade - before - then lifted 5 ft. Then completely reworked. Now this...

 

wait for it....

 

 

...waaiitt for itttt....

Speechless is the right word. I don't know if I like it, but I was stunned.

That is completely insane, and I must be completely insane because I think I like it!

My taste runs more modern and minimalist nowadays, yet Tudor homes have enamored me since I was a kid, and they still do. Bravo!

Only on the other side of the pond. I'm sorry but that looks as genuine as that Disney castle.

totally not what i was expecting but i kinda love it! i'd be interested to see the interior!

I wonder if the inside is as playful and stylish as the outside? Any chance of interiors? Please please please?!

LOVE this... today. Not sure how I might feel about it in two years when it was time to repaint. But still, I WANT. And looking at the outside of my new house, I could totally do it, too. LOL... that would certainly introduce me quick to the Neighborhood Association!

Now that's vision...I often fantasize about how i would make over a run down home...

Oh, direction to my house ? Round the corner, down the road ... you won't miss it, i assure you .... YOU WON'T MISS IT ! LOVE !!!

A drastic change, sure, but i"m not sure if it's a great one. A little too kitschy... and I bet it'll be a pain to maintain this look as all those dark stained wooden pieces start aging.

OH MY GOD. Freaking amazing! What vision! And such an unexpected look! I love it.

UhhhhhhhhhMAZING!!!! Love love love love! What an incredible and inspiring transformation! I am soooo in love! This is going right to the top of my covet list! Bravo!

We LOVE this -- it reminds me of Little Moreton Hall in the UK. We tried to contact you -- I wanted to do an article about your house decor-- and wanted to hear the story as well.

I for one am totally hoping you leave it as is!!!

Maybe you can rent it out for weddings or movies or something. ;)

A work of art and genius. Stupendous! Another plea for an inside photo tour!!!
