The most Christmassy house in Camden is back!

The illuminations on the Holly Lodge Estate are back - despite last year's grumpy note from a neighbour

A HOMEOWNER in Highgate has defiantly covered his home in Christmas lights and decoration again – twelve months after a neighbour complained the display was an eyesore.

The house in Hillway on the Holly Lodge Estate is unmissable for its festive illuminations, which were switched back on last week.

Last Christmas, Tony South, whose family have lived in the street for more than 60 years, was sent an anonymous note from someone living nearby which claimed the display was “appalling”. The message added: “I am currently looking to relocate as a result, God only knows what you must have in store for St Valentine’s Day.”

Mr South said: “I know some people do some Christmas lights in a rather tacky way, but I take care and make sure it is well designed and colour co-ordinated.”
