Good News from the Home Front

The New York Times’ Arts Beat blog reports that Undershaw, “a Victorian house where [Sherlock Holmes’] creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, lived in the late 1800s and early 1900s and wrote 13 Holmes adventures including The Hound of the Baskervilles, has been saved from redevelopment and will not be turned into multiple dwellings ... A High Court judge ruled that although Undershaw’s current owners had made plans for its preservation they had not properly consulted with English Heritage, the organization that oversees historic buildings.”
