Our house has been in need of a fresh coat of paint & in the last few weeks it has had a lovely spruce up in Cornish Cream & Duck Egg Blue, so I had to post a few photos to show you our 1930's farm cottage in all her simple glory - she is not a pretty chocolate box cottage but she is ours!
She started off life as a 3 bedroom cottage but was extended about 30 years ago so is about twice her original size & a nice family home. We bought the house 8 years ago & this is the second time we've had to paint the exterior.
The older part of the house still has some original features such as picture rails & panelled doors with bakelite handles. Sadly the old leaded windows were rotten so we had to replace them all when we bought the house, as well as the kitchen, bathrooms, carpets, floors etc etc as everything had been neglected, but we are in a wonderful position at the end of a lane which doesn't go anywhere & backing onto the farm that she used to belong to & with only 5 houses down here it is quiet & peaceful. Plus the rooms are spacious & plentiful so we overlooked her problems & bought her anyway!
