These were taken the day before I moved in and those that follow are some of the rooms. I now know it was once a farmhouse built in 1936 with all the surrounding land owned by the farmer family. About 40 years ago the bulk of the land was sold due to lack of interest from the sons to continue farming. It seems the money was used amongst other things to enlarge the house.
What's ruefully humourous is that so much works 'on paper' and when it comes to putting plans into effect it's a far larger set of tasks that engage varying degrees of motivation! Little or no maintenance has been done to the house with the previous owners being more interested in self-sufficiency (organic foodies) or prior to that not having enough funds and/or interest. I knew this when I bought..as said paper v. reality. all good though.
From the kitchen through to the living area. Wonderful wide doorways and a huge living space..
Well..I saw the potential when I bought; the word 'potential' is over-used my house sellers lol..a hole in the ground has potential according to how much money one wishes to spend filling it. So I genuinely like this house and my intent of course is to make it a home. On a budget!
The colour looks great in an empty room..I'm not a fan of too much wood. It would be different if the wood were oak or something similar but the window frames are not in good condition so I'll most likely paint the frames and surrounds white. I'll not touch the floors of course - not sure what's underneath this carpet. If it's the same flooring as the kitchen and other rooms I'd be tempted to lift this carpet and piut rugs down..a project to be put to one side for quite some time..
