Looking for her next nest, this Mum would like 3 bedrooms – or be able to convert a Victorian living space or garage into a 3rd bedroom – 1 bathroom is fine but 2 would be a bonus and would love a space that could be a hangout for her teenagers. OSP is not necessary.
She adores Victorian homes or even new build units that have a mix of materials (brick and render). No time to do fixes herself but could pay for trades to do it if budget allows.
