Brighton – Padua

Shame this house isn’t real!

Padua was a solid redbrick Victorian Villa with honeysuckle and clematis framing the steeply pitched porch. The cool, rose-scented , echoing space of the entrance hall welcomed the man inside from the relentless glare of the afternoon sun”

“ Anthony had made her tea at the interview. He had brought it into the garden room; teapot with cozy, milk jug, sugar bowl and tongs, cups and saucers, silver teaspoons, tea strainer and stand.

All set out on a tray with a tray cloth. Pure white, lace –edged linen. The tray cloth was definitive. Padua was clearly a house where all these things, including the tray cloth, were part of every day life”.

There are walks on Brighton beach….

“the glittering waves and warm, salty wind of Brighton sea front”
