At long last the 900 year old Thatch has gone under the auctioneer's hammer.....SOLD!
£115,000 . A fair price for such a beautiful property. Idyllic scenery, character.. low ceilings, doors, limited space. Just big enough for two people... or in this case two people and one small dog. So at long last we will be getting new neighbours.. on the other side. It will be interesting to see the property develop. New thatch.. water and electricity in.. clean windows to look out of. The new owners aren't in any rush to move in until they have had megga amounts of repair done. It's had no inhabitants for over 50 years, so you can imagine...maybe ... the state of it. Large spiders - rats in the roof. Bird nesting in the straw.. Wondrous joys to be had once all this is renovated. But ......... because of the property's age, it can not be altered on the outside. It has to remain as it is.. black and white. No extensions allowed. Now conservatories built. It is as it is and has pretty much been for the last 900 years.
