A Grand Design

Finally!  A Grand Designs episode with not a trace of modernism or minimalism in sight.  Instead, this episode's couple are building a gothic wonder.

Their original design features a front facade that will fit in with surrounding houses, but the back, which faces a fantastic view, will be fully gothic.  They have a tower!  And a timber balcony.  Inside there will be an abundance of timber arches, arched doorways, and a giant gothic mantelpiece in the full length flag-stoned hall.

I want this house.  It is exactly to my tastes, whereas modern architecture is not.  Though I would have to add some Gaudiesque changes...
