“When we drew up outside Little Farm for the first time in late 1996 we were
definitely not looking for an old house,” says
Julia, “in fact we were doing nothing more than
passing through Broughton, but this house really
caught our eye. We were lucky enough to obtain
a viewing straight away, and as soon as the door
was opened we were immediately impressed
by the sight of the chimney rising up behind the
staircase and the structure of the oak beams.
Right from the very start we loved the house, its
situation and its immense possibilities.”

This beautiful home, a former Yeoman farmhouse that dates back to 1642, sits in a wonderful location in the heart
of the pretty village of Broughton. “When we bought the house the
renovation process had already begun,” says Julia, “but it was in
a very basic state. My husband, Eric, is a design engineer with ten
years building experience, and so we set to renovating it and the
outbuildings, which had been left as they were for many years.”

Over the past fourteen years, as well as renovating throughout, we have added a large extension, which contains a huge living room and kitchen
to one side. It’s a great space that has really worked well for us, and it never fails
to extract favorable comments from our friends. It also has the most wonderful
view right the way up the garden. The pigsty was transformed into a self contained
annexe and the rest of the outbuildings were turned into useful, sound structured
buildings. We feel that the house is now an aesthetically pleasing and

“The garden is lovely and at just over an acre it’s very spacious. We had it landscaped in a way that makes it extremely easy to maintain. It has shrubs and trees that provide
colour and interest all year round, and we also have a nice decked area and pond; lots of people comment that they could come and sit in it for hours. We’re situated on a very quiet road,”
says Julia, “in fact it’s so peaceful that it’s possible to walk right around the village and never come across a car. There’s a thriving community here and always something to get involved with,
if you so desire, and we have a lovely pub that serves delicious food. It will be heart wrenching to leave this house,” says Julia, “but circumstances dictate that the time has come. I’ll miss
everything about it. I love it to bits. I love the location, the views, the space and the fact that we have spent so many years making it into a really lovely family home.”
