Hello all teachers and members,
In Lost Ground (W. Trevor), there are some descriptions of a farm house.
'Nearly sixty years later, with a ragged front garden separating it from a lane that was used mainly by the Leesons, the house still stood white and slated, no tendrils of creeper softening its spare usefulness'
What is underlined words meaning. Thanks for your explanation.
And I imagine the word 'usefulness' refers to the utilitarian quality of the building.
