All of these homes are unique in their own way. You might recognise some, but some you may not.
What does a home want to be? It’s a question that anthropomorphises a building; uncomfortable for some who believe the anatomy of a home to be limited to gables and bricks, frieze boards and fascias, roof hips and eaves. But then there is another camp, those who believe in the soul of a home. Lisa is Managing Director of Currans Homes and Committee Member of CAPP proudly falls into the latter category. She is passionate about Chester and unique homes in equal measure. Compiling this with her trusted writer Sarah Igo and photographer Adrian Little came as a natural progression.
The emotional attachment many of us feel toward our homes is profound, perhaps more so now than ever before. As the wider world becomes more unpredictable, we draw our own world more tightly around us, making it a safe place in which we can disconnect from the noise.
Home means different things to different people. And each home in this book is distinctive in its own unique way. Some bigger, some smaller, some rich in history, others new builds, making their debut on the scene. Each home has its own persona, instantly tangible as you step through the door. This palpable sense of personality is as much down to architectural design and history as it is in relation to the owners, their values, priorities and characters as they journey for a time with the house, becoming a part of its process of evolution.
The homes featured in this book are not merely grand homes, or period homes, they are homes that spark joy; unique additions to Chester’s landscape, each one with its own story to tell.
