    Another lovely home from the UK ~ Fergus keep on sharing!!! Please!!! (rumor has it that living in the UK, and really all of Europe is even more expensive than the US due to taxation. Is that really true?)

    After I finished galloping across the fields with my horse I would return home to tea by the fireplace. Sigh.

    Am wondering what sort(s) of flooring are underneath the carpeting? Lovely countryside, with plenty of hedgerows apparently still in evidence!

      Given that the house looks to date back to around the 1910s/1920s, there’s a very good chance that the flooring underneath the carpeting on the ground floor is herringbone/parquet, whilst the first floor and lower ground floor would be narrow floorboards originally intended to be covered by carpeting.

        Ah, thanks, Fergus. I think I’d pull up corners & peek underneath. If finished – say… the parquet or herringbone you mentioned, meant to be seen – flooring found, I’d rip up the carpeting & use just area rugs.

        Underneath the original linoleum in my kitchen (1920 house), I found… the same oak flooring as is in the rest of the house, being used as a sub-floor in the kitchen. Linoleum was considered to be ‘sanitary’ & preferred in kitchens back then. Me, I prefer the oak flooring; just needed to have it sanded & sealed.

    Oh so sad for no pictures of this conservatory they mark on the floorplan, and somewhat seen in some of the exterior shots. I am just so in love with this house! I would definitely make an attempt to get back to wood floors, hopefully the originals hiding under the carpeting. And I would probably want to do some “updating” to the kitchen and bath to make it better fit with the age of the house. Oh, and goodness, some gorgeous furniture scattered throughout!

    All in all, a lovely property! Thanks so much for sharing. (Of course, I could in no way ever actually afford to live in England or this house, lol. *tear*)

    “Adapt & renovate” what? Sure doesn’t look to need renovating to me — anything needed would be cosmetic. Very livable house and its location is perfect: country & town living at once. Great find, Fergus!

    Got to share this with a friend of mine who loves the UK .. her husband is from there and they just got back to Canada from a visit … this is gorgeous!

    I have a great scone recipe I could make in that kitchen.

    You had me at ‘tumulus’. I’d be doing my own mini Time Team in the gardens! If only I still had my UK residency- sigh……

    the aerial shots look like a fairy tale… I want to sit on that gorgeous bench under the tree for a cuppa…

    There’s a lovely TV show called “Escape to the Country” available here in western NY because we’re just across the river from Canada. It’s also available on Netflix. A much more civilized version of our “House Hunters” and you get a bit of local history and culture with each show.
