Ever wondered what this house I'm talking about actually looks like? Here's a little piccy:
It's on the day we moved in (14 weeks ago!). You can see me mum carrying stuff in. My dad's inside the lorry (the one we hired). You can just make out his leg - he's sat down on the fridge having a breather!
The house is Victorian and was built in about 1903. It's a double-bay setup (living room front left and dining room on right with kitchen behind it). There are four bedrooms and two toilets. It's neither large nor small. It's just right.
There's a nice garden behind it and the stream, of course. There's a separate garage at the end of the drive, which you can just see to the left of the picture. There used to be more land to the left that belonged to the house. Years ago a couple lived here and the man died. The lady sold the house (without the land) and built herself a bungalow in this land. It's still there and our garden is a lot smaller for it.
Since we've been here I've learnt quite a bit about the house and the street. That's another story, which I'll share later. With some more pictures probably.
