Renovating a Victorian Carriage House

I am so excited to share the before pictures of a project very close to our hearts. P and I, along with our wonderful team, have been working for the past few months on this beautiful Victorian carriage house in the heart of the breathtaking Dorset countryside. It has been a hugely challenging, but we are really starting to make headway and see this historic building come to life again, which is both exciting and rewarding in equal measure. Prior to us taking it on, it had been divided up into three flats and lived in for a number of years without much updating taking place, so as you can see from the pictures, there was a lot to do!

Over coming weeks and months I will share updates on the work and I can’t wait to see the finished home, which we hope to be moving into in time for Christmas, if not a little earlier. Spending time in Dorset has been such a pleasure! One of the most beautiful counties in the UK, it’s where I was born and I actually grew up only fifteen minutes from this house. P and I were also both at school nearby, so it really does feel like coming home for both of us.

    I'm literally drooling over these photos. There's a building with so much potential and beautifully sized rooms. You're going to have SO much fun and it's yours! No jealousy here. None. Nope. x

    Thank you Hannah, it is a very special building and we feel honoured to be able to bring it back to its best. You must come and visit when it's done! Laura x
