Van Gogh House
Van Gogh House is a Georgian (not Victorian but this was the closest category to us) blue-plaqued terrace in South London in which the eponymous painter once lived. It was restored in 2018-19 by architect Livia Wang. Original features were repaired or reinstated and wooden floorboards, wobbly crown glass, cracked hearths, later 1930s light switches are all features of this paired back period property. The house has minimal furniture and so can be dressed or left understated. There is a bright and airy modern kitchen extension to the rear of the house, overlooking the landscape garden sown with flowers VG would have seen. This is a stunning location for a contemporary feel or a cosy place (with underfloor heating) for cast and crew to gather and make tea while the shoot happens in the historical part of the house.
