For those of you that follow me on Twitter you will know that my dream home as gone up for sale.
Do you all have one of these? A house that you have always wanted, your perfect forever home.
This is a home that I drive past all the time and long to own. I have loved it from afar and now its up for sale. When I saw the for sale boards outside I just had to see if we could afford it.
We can't. Not in a long shot.
But I just had to share. I have imagined us living there. With chickens,ducks, goats and pigs. An abundant allotment. An apple tree in the garden. Stone floors and a wood burning stove. I have imagined the sunsets over the fields. Listening to the cockerel and his cry. The smell of the wild flowers.
Like a modern day Larkin family.
You can see the full details of the house here
It says there is planning permission to extend/change the property. I hope the new owners keep its charm and don't turn it into a modern luxury mansion like some of the houses in the area. I love the bungalows traditional feel. It sits right at home as it is. It probably needs a new kitchen/bathroom etc but I would keep the exterior the same. I would fill the garden with beautiful flowers and have a whole farmyard out the back.
I will need to sell a lot of vintage to afford a house like this but one day...one day...
