We've bought the Farm....te he

Hi guys,

Yes, all the paperwork has finally been processed the t's crossed and the i's dotted and we are totally and utterly 'skint'.  But yesterday, on the only bright day with a blue sky in the last two months, we completed on our derelict farm house.
As you can see it needs some work...well a lot of work.  It'll look a million times better by just knocking off the render as it's pretty old and is built of lovely stone.  I think the render was added to make it water tight at some stage.  It does need some redesign and is in a sorry state, but it is nestled in acres of green belt land which will never be built on and the view is just so lovely from any direction.  We have one near neighbour and there are other farms dotted about in the distance, but yet we're only 3 miles from the nearest town which is where we live now.

Now all we need is to sell our house...should be a piece of cake, um not.


  1. Congratulations! It's beautiful and will be stunning in time.
    I'm really looking forward to the before and after pictures. Have you had any luck selling your house?

  2. Love, love, love the house!! Congratulations :-)

  3. it looks absolutely lovely, but I need to ask, what is a render?

  4. That is so awesome! It's gorgeous and looks perfect to me (with a little TLC, of course)! Can't wait to see it when you've settled in!

  5. That looks like it would be the house of my DREAMS! It's beautiful...I love love LOVE farm house style too...*jealous* ;) Congrats and nice to "meet you" :) Looking forward to following you and hopefully seeing more pics of the beautiful house!

  6. Love the house. Hope you sell your house sooner rather than later. Remember to light sugar cookie candles when showing the house. :)
