After hunting for weeks, and looking at loads of properties in the area, we’ve finally found our dream house! It’s an old, but not too old, house on the outskirts of the village. It used to belong to a doctor, and has obviously been well kept, compared to a lot of other buildings we’ve seen. The land is a bit smaller than we’d wanted originally, but looks like it will easily do for what we want. We saw the house on Tuesday 29th July, got a friend who knows more about buildings than we do to give it the once over. He was happy with the condition, so we put an offer in the following day, then paid for the house and got the keys on the following Tuesday! One week to buy a house.
