Kettle's Yard House was originally the home of Jim Ede, an art collector who previously worked at The Tate, London.
In 1956, Jim and his wife Helen converted four small cottages in Cambridge into one contemporary home and opened as a gallery to exhibit Ede's collection of early 20th-century art. The aim of the space was to open every afternoon to the public and local students.
Walking round the house, you can't help but admire every room, corner, window and shelf. The whole house truly is a work of art...and even better is the house if free to visit, just make sure you book!
