Red Striped House Covered Up. The candy stripes barely seen by neighbours or public anymore.

A controversial red striped house in Kensington London is now boarded up despite winning a case to rebuild.  It’s not known why the candy stripes have been covered up. 

In 2017, owner Zipporah Lisle-Mainwaring won a legal battle to replace it with a new home. But neighbours objected.  Row between both sides led to the issue going to court.

Lawyers for Ms Lisle-Mainwaring said they had no information concerning the cover up of the stripes.

Kensington and Chelsea Council say if work not done within 3 years of the plans approved then work cannot go ahead.
