  • 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. Its 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

    characterful property.

  • The garden is lovely and at just over an acre its 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. Were situated on a very quiet road,

    says Julia, in fact its so peaceful that its possible to walk right around the village and never come across a car. Theres 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. Ill 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.
