Art lovers will soon be able to stay in a holiday home designed by the Turner Prize-winning artist, Grayson Perry
Overlooking the Stour estuary in the north of the county, A House for Essex’s unconventional form is inspired by all manner of eccentricities and fairy tales but more specifically, by a woman called Julie. Born in Canvey Island in 1953, she married refinery worker Dave in her youth and had two children by him before an affair ended their marriage. She then wed Rob, who commissioned this ornate house in her memory after she was knocked down and killed by a curry delivery driver in Colchester.
A colourful story concocted for this fictional character, it can be followed throughout the property, which is imaginatively filled with her belongings and treasures, and which is a true testament to Perry’s creativity.
