This house is the oldest residential property in London. It was built Circa. 1597
It actually survived the Great Fire of London as it was within the walls of the Priory.
It also survived a Zeppelin bombing raid during World War I.
Damage to the brickwork on the third floor level was sustained during further attacks from bombing raids during World War II. These bricks were replaced a few years later but never matched.
Dyebrick was used to blend the offending areas sympathetically, creating an authentic aged appearance which matched the period original.
Dyebrick is the first choice for Preservation Companies and is approved by many Local Authorities.
2 x Classic Brick-Red Tinting Kits and 2 x Brick-Age Kits were used for this project.
