Take a look around this coastal holiday home in Kent

The owners bought this two-bedroom flat in Kent as a holiday home. The property is part of an old school, which was built in the 1800s.

When they first viewed the flat they had to see past the dated style, but luckily the structure of the building was sound.  The apartment was in very poor condition and needed a lot of internal work, ‘You could tell it had been lacking a bit of TLC, but we could see its potential and were ready for a challenge,’ say the owners.

When they bought it they set to work updating the decor, which they managed to do thanks to the help of friends and family. The couple worked hard to transform their holiday home into a light and airy property by making good use of the space. The decor is now quirky and unique and the holiday-inspired scheme makes it a great place to relax after a busy week.
