The resurrection of a 200-year old warehouse, now a beautiful residence by the Thames.

Craftsmanship, no matter how beautifully applied, is never enough when reclaiming a venerable old building of historic interest. Sympathy and understanding are the essential if authenticityis to be preserved. When Dunbar Wharf on Limehouse Creek came onto the market, although inherently sound, it needed a great deal of TLC to bring it into the  21st century and to do so without compromising its charm and character.

Dunbar Wharf is a tenacious and surprising survivor of the Blitz. The German bombers scattered bombs over the of Royal Victoria and West India Dockyards, also destroying most of the neigbouring areas of Limehouse, Wapping and Millwall. The decay lasted years after the war until the rival started in the late 1980s, spurred on by the transformation of the docklands area.

Wow, this looks magical. I believe that maintaining old architectural creations is the responsibility of modern mankind. I was always amazed at how graceful and majestic the buildings of the past years are. Each building has its own unique story ... I find it very interesting !! I recently visited Budapest and was very surprised by the Parliament building. This is a huge building, which is made in the Gothic style and which definitely has a lot of cool stories. It is a pity that we will not be able to recognize many of them .. When I was choosing a house for myself to buy, I was looking for a relatively old house, which is more than a decade old. To be honest, it was very long and expensive, but I think it was worth it. I try to keep it original, but it's very difficult. Some areas had to be heavily renovated, as they were in a terrible state. I had problems with the siding, but https://www.maxima-aluminum.com/ provided me with everything I needed to restore the siding. I hope I can keep my house in its original condition as long as possible :)
