Home bird...

Oh dear.

I fell in love with a flat on line. 

I confess. 

I saw it on line when we were looking to see what I could expect to pay in my chosen area. And I fell head OVER. 

Oh dear. 

I've book marked it.

I kept staring at it.

So, parents and I went to look. 

Oh dear. 

I wanted to fall OUT of love with it. For it to smell, or be too much to take on (only so much 7 photographs can tell you about a house). 

Nope. The opposite.

A small vestibule, a flight of stairs, zany carpet. A fabulous mirror at the top of the stairs.


The sitting room has fabulous view across a local park, a 30s fireplace, bay windows with the original lead stained windows in the new UPVC:


 

There are two double bedrooms and a study. One of them is currently a dining room, and the one that is the bedroom has an amazingly HUGE closet it. But I'd probably have that as a 'guest' bedroom, and the 'dining' room as the main bedroom. This may change!




It is the kitchen and bathroom that show the most signs of wear, but the main work that needs doing is a new roof and a rewire.

The kitchen is liveable as it is, as is the bathroom. 

I'm now stuck in that limbo of waiting for meetings with people to talk percentages and monthly payments. 

But it felt RIGHT walking into that front door, through the split doors, up the stairs, looking at the light hitting the mirror. 

Wish me luck, 

Much love, my lovelies,

  1. I can see why you've fallen in love with it, it's gorgeous.
    It looks so much like my house, especially carpet wise, ours is purple and green! I'm voting to keep our carpet when the room gets decorated.
    I hope that you are able to afford it or find something that you fall equally as much in love with if not more :)
