What makes a particular home intriguing is something of an enigma. We can dissect and analyze yet will rarely be able to unravel the mystery. After all, it may be fairly similar to others, yet the difference is crucial. Some homes simply have it – charisma. An evocative space doesn’t appear from nowhere or in an instant; it’s the sum of many parts that hit the sweet spot.
