On entering this tiny cottage, I was met with the smell of musty carpet and the sight of peeling paint, dust and grime. When I reached the bathroom I made a b-line for the front door. Never in a million years.
Four hours later I made an offer. I knew this ugly duckling had potential, even if it scared the ‘C#%@’ out of me. I ve faced my biggest challenge ever. The cottage is tiny, 2 bedrooms, an awkward living area and a kitchen. The rest to be demolished. This is the beginning of my journey, and maybe a renovation nightmare.
