I know, it’ll be a tight squeeze - there’s just me, my wife and three cats, so we might have to do a loft conversion….

As for a thread of its own, I should probably do one, but progress will be slow as it’s my sort of retirement project (only 53, so not past it yet!) and we’re not starting it until the Spring.

I’ve had my own bespoke kitchen firm for some time, so we’re really going to go for it in there - think: island as big as Guernsey, separate larder and pantry, booth seating etc.

The first job is this:


Going to make it into a workshop and garage

I spotted this relatively locally over the weekend. I really like the house and the sound of the barns, but I think the garden would need to go back to being a garden, rather than a paving slab demonstration.

The town is very pleasant with a very good independent bike shop and an excellent Grammar school. Seaton, the nearest seaside town isn't as posh as Sidmouth, but it's gentrifying gradually.

Yep, I like that too.

Size wise, it's on the edge of what is practical for me, size wise - borderline too big, but I reckon I could make it work.

Local.
Rural.
No neighbours.
Garages / workshops.
94 acres.
Can't get much higher round here.

Unfortunately, style wise, I hate it!

Nothing shown reflects any element of comfort, does it?

Yes it could do with another set (bigger) of windows at the front and a few decent sofa's and rugs but I could make myself pretty comfortable in that.

EA Said: "built in the late 20th century with later extensive additions. " and it looks it, roof line too meagre, proportions all wrong.

It’s an architectural mess made worse by random additions
