Monkton House, Edinburgh
Michael & Zoe Bennett-Levy have now put Monkton House up for sale and my time there is shortly coming to an end, they have I am sure only good memories of their stay and will be passing on their history as well as the history of the haouse. The history of the origional owners and builders and the following few hundred years of inhabitants at monkton have somehow left nothing more than the marks on the walls and their styles of building. This new age of technology will leave folks more of an idea of the transformation that as taken place there and the character of those that have lived and enjoyed their stay or even those that have just visited for 10 minutes. It always pleases Michael when he looks at the faces of visitors and sees their disbelief at what their eyes are telling them. This is not just the house but the style of the owners, somewhat relaxed and yet bazaar. It is possibly the previous owner that really set the style and then Michael and Zoe have lightened it and put an art factor into the mixture. The house is a snip at the price and I hope that it will get the advertising that it deserves. For my part here is the estate agents site http://www.primelocation.com/uk-property-for-sale/details/id/RETT_EDI070733
Here are some photos of the restorstion work that I have done for Michael and also two of the bathrooms that I have completed there, the before and after shots remind me how the children complained that we were destroying memories of their chilchood but when you look at the before I am sure it is better looking at the after.
