The Househunter: Room by Room

8th November 2019

So last week we looked at a four bedroom house in the wing of a country manor and this week we’ve got the whole manor. It’s actually a four bedroom former rectory that’s two or three times as big as last week’s but that can bring its own issues I think. This is on the…
