   Pair of houses on Castle Lane, Bournemouth

Castle Lane HousesCastle Lane houses
Two super Modernist houses on this main arterial road running through the northern part of Bournemouth. Those semicircular
towers look really fun and must surely be a pleasing feature of the rooms - though I wonder how easy such things really are to
live with. The house on the left has managed to retain the original little windows at the bottom of the tower, though the owners
of its twin have tired of them and put in some double-glazed slats. There are some other Deco-influenced shops scattered along
Castle Lane, and a pleasing block of flats at nos.964-966 (Castle Court), but nothing as striking as this little pair of houses.
