The cottage that once stood here had been extended over the years so that while it was familiar and comfortable, it was not necessarily practical. With careful thought and planning, a new family home has been built to suit three generations of one family. ‘When we all discussed the matter of living together, it was an easy conclusion to reach,” says the owner. “My husband’s parents did not want to leave the home they loved and he wanted out children to have the same idyllic childhood he had had, so we rebuilt the property as two connected houses.’
