A house with history

I won’t write much about the house buying process in this post, other than to say it was fairly short, but extremely sharp!
In May 2011, we moved from a modern 1990’s two-bed to an 1850’s cottage. Originally two teeny separate dwellings, the two cottages were converted in the early noughties to make one normal sized three bed house.
I have always adored older properties, and although we loved our first home, it seriously lacked quirks and character.

We knew our house must have a tale to tell so we were chuffed to bits to discover all the paperwork from the last 150 years bundled together in a cupboard. As well as being able to trace the history of our home, the paper, hand calligraphy and wax seals are truly stunning!

Have you ever had the urge to look into the history of your home?
