No slight intended over Walter Segal house

  • Comment

I hope that no other AJ reader sensed or even imagined any - wholly unintended - 'illinformed allegation' against Andrews & Robertson's respected chartered surveying practice (Letters, AJ 22.11.01). I apologise if anyone has taken offence over my AJ report of Andrews & Robertson's auctioning of the Walter Segal house in south London (AJ 1.11.01) - cogently added to by Gillian Simmons of the Walter Segal Self Build Trust (AJ 8.11.01).

I thought I was blaming the mock antique diagonal bracing and diamond pane glazing (also mock, and more blatant in the original photographs) for the cheapening of Walter Segal's inspired elevation.

And the 'extremely competitive guide price' in consequence proved just the right start for a knock down auction after the ignorant damage. But if some well-informed AJ readers might have seized a chance to bid. . .
