It was old, the garden was overgrown and it would need some work over the next few years. But it also had an odd extra little room upstairs in the second bedroom behind a narrow door that caught my fancy the second I saw it. And the house just felt right. I genuinely would have been disappointed had we not gotten it.
Almost one year on and the garden is slowly being tamed and it still needs a bit of work here and there but it’s ours.
