Montpelier Row, Twickenham

Today we went for a stroll around our current neighbourhood for inspiration from similar Georgian terraced houses and thanked our lucky stars that we didn't have pay the crazy local prices to match.

Montpelier Row in Twickenham is a long brick Georgian Terrace with some prettily individual doorways. Number 15 was built in about 1721. Alfred Tennyson and his family rented it in 1851, albeit only for a couple of years. We loved the way the number was painted on the gate post. So beautifully styled. Simple and elegant. It would be easy enough to recreate by enlarging the shape and tracing it.

Here are some more Georgian terraced houses in London and their doorways.
