The freezing cold 1855 house that was up for sale in the winter of 2013 used to be a tutorial annexe of Goldsmiths, University of London but had been empty for four years. The place was dire, with no bathroom except a single loo in a tacked-on structure, and a tiny kitchen extension like a Salvation Army tea counter. Add to the picture rising damp, ripped-out windows, a collapsing spine wall and the spooky appearance of an office apparently abandoned at short notice.
