Having renovated their previous home, Kerry and James were no strangers to the challenges of a project when they viewed this house just before Christmas in 2012, but this property presented the couple with a much bigger refurbishment.
“We knew this house would need a lot of work as there was no central heating and basic wiring from the 1960s, and it had woodworm, dry rot and wet rot,” explained Kerry but for some reason we felt this was the house for us.”
This mix of old and new extends throughout as the couple combined new furniture with antique and eBay finds to give their home a more lived-in feel.
“At Christmas, we style the house to feel calming and warm and homely. We’ll have a family get-together and as we live in a rural area, we’ll have lots of walks and enjoy the outdoors.”
