5.0 out of 5 stars Welsh architecture at its best, 2 Jan 2008
By 
This review is from: Discovering Welsh Houses (Paperback)
This is a really broad, well balanced look at some architectural delights around Wales. The range of properties is excellent - anything from a Tudor period mansion to recently designed buildings. Peppered with great photos and engagingly written with an easy, accessible style it's a perfect book to delve in and out of and put back for all to see on your coffee table. It's 'Grand Designs' with the added interest of Welsh history and culture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must for house lovers, 2 Jan 2008
This review is from: Discovering Welsh Houses (Paperback)
I loved this book and keep returning to it, not just for the glorious photographs of all manner (no pun intended) of houses but the author's very readable words that are both interesting and entertaining. This is a man who knows his stuff and can also get it across in an enjoyable way. If you saw the TV series you will love rediscovering the houses. If you didn't you are in for a treat. By the way, just because it has Welsh in the title don't think it is only of interest in Wales because some of the house styles are very much characteristic of house building across the UK at that time, such as the lovely Edwardian villas. Highly recommended.

I am lucky enough to live in one of the houses in the book. I know that one well and a lot of its history.Even so the book manages to fill more of the gaps and then goes on to provide wonderful information about what is a very special heritage. Anyone with an interest in what influenced so much of our past will be delighted withthis book.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than just a book on architecture!, 14 Jan 2008

This review is from: Discovering Welsh Houses (Paperback)
A beautiful book illustrating a full cross section of ancient and modern Welsh Houses. In addition to the usual physical descriptions and photographs of each property, the author manages to give some of the history of the period in which they were built and an insight into each owners approach their home. The result is a book about some wonderful eclectic places, but also about peoples passion for buildings.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Many Dimensions, 2 Jan 2008
By 
J. Avent (Bath) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Discovering Welsh Houses (Paperback)
A wonderful book which is so much more than 'A Guide to 18 Architectural Gems' as the sub-title says. It is an historical journey, a geographical exploration, and a social study of the buildings of Wales.
A first class selection of quality photographs (is the weather really always that good in Wales?) to illustrate the buildings, combined with crisp concise text, with excellent choice of font and layout, and quality production, which all adds to the enjoyment of the book.
As much a 'dip-in' coffee table book as it is an informative architectural and historic record of buildings in Wales.

Its about time someone put together such great detail and photography on the just a hint of historic Welsh residential property.
I would recommend the book to anyone interested in both Wales and Welsh architecture and hope that a version two will follow shortly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Welsh Architectural Gems, 22 Jan 2008
By 
This review is from: Discovering Welsh Houses (Paperback)
A wonderful selection of houses from the oldest house in Wales to one of the most modern and with a dollop of healthy eccentricity inbetween. The photography is superb really bringing these places to life as places to live and creating a sense of location and atmosphere. A must have for anyone and everyone wishing to own a house with real character; so beware.
