The journey to this couple’s dream house wasn’t the simplest. A week before they sold their London home in 2008, the financial crisis hit. ‘It couldn’t have been a worse time to sell a property,’ says the owner. The couple bought a house as a stop gap, but they were still set on finding their dream home – a period property with room for open-plan spaces, but only 10 minutes from a mainline station. With such specific criteria to match, the hunt took some time. When the estate agent contacted them about this house the couple weren’t even in the country but, worried they might miss out, they bought it having only seen photos and floor plans.
