The simple geometry of this charming service door at the David Peden house by Harrie T. Lindeberg is just one example of the work of this great architect of the 20th century. I love it.

The estate grounds straddle both Donhead St Andrew and Berwick St John parishes. text from Wikipedia I had no idea this was a new house!!! Image source
