"When we first saw this property we must admit we were worried we had perhaps bitten off more than we could chew. The house was in a derelict state and had clearly been left for a number of years (It had no kitchen or functional facilities). We knew it was a 'massive' project but we were keen to take it on and we are so glad we did. Since doing the renovation and subsequently moving in we have enjoyed every minute of our home. The location is brilliant; we visit the Harbour most days, the sociable kitchen/family room and being able to walk to Ashley Cross in less than 10 minutes. We will be sad to leave what we feel is the perfect home but having done this project we want to do our next /last project for our forever family home to bring our family up in."
