Eccentric living...

What would you do if you had a time machine that could go back 15 years? I'd head to the East End and snap up many a Georgian terrace, as they were going for the same as a 1 bed flat in developed areas, and now they are some of the most expensive London housing stock around.
Someone who managed to snap one up for a song was Tim Knox, director of  Sir John Soane’s Museum, and his landscape gardener partner Todd Longstaffe-Gowan, who managed to acquire the then dishevelled Malplaquet House (a most awesomely named property). And have lovingly restored and adorned it, in properly eccentric style. Very Last Tuesday Society.
