New house

Well the contract have been signed, we are still awaiting exchange and dates, but I can contain myself no longer, with pics of our new home. I want to thank-you all you lovely clickers for all your helpful, humorous, and supportive comments over the past 6 months when this adventure started for OH and myself. So we are almost sorted and probably have a lot less stuff, more room for more!!! So after having lived in this current house for 24 yrs and spending almost 50yrs in Dorset in various towns, having been born in Middlesex Oh in Liverpool,we are  saying goodbye and hello  Wisbech Cambridgeshire and the fens. The house was built in about the 1820’s but has been well cared for and extended and was given the all clear from the surveyor, just a few minor jobs to be done, The garden is a blank canvas and the what will be the veg garden does need a bit of work to make it a area where I can grow hopefully most if not all of our veg, we will have plenty of fruit trees, apple, pear and plum, and a grape vine in the conservatory, yes the roots are in soil not a pot! plus a olive tree too.

The pics I scanned are off the Estate agent blurb so might not be very clear. But it will give you a idea

    LYNN, IT LOOKS SOOOOOOOOOO FAB! The house is picture perfect and the garden is just gorgeous I thought it was a shot of Monty’s Gardener’s World garden! And a view of the ship of the fens…fantastic! I wish you much happiness and fun in your new home and for the start of your new adventure :rose:

    CHARACTER and SPACE! Can’t be beat. Will be balm for the body and soul Lynn, when you get yourselves settled. Must confess I thought at one point like Jenn that I had wandered into Monty’s garden – but everything in moderation – you have open space to let your imagination soar too – and I know you must both be very happy at the outcome of this cliffhanger.

  12. Thank-you Hayley, Karen,Jenn&Shelia, getting very excited , anxious all in one at the moment. :rose: I shall take more pics when we settle in and as the garden progresses too, you’ll be fed up with them all :lol: :rose:

    Oooh Lynn, that’s brilliant news, it looks absolutely lovely, I am so pleased for you, it will be wonderful I am sure.
    How big is the garden Lynn?, it looks a really good size, I am sure you will have great fun with it :good:

    • Thankyou Ali, I’m not sure how big the garden is, I will have to measure it, certainly big enough for me to plant lots of flowers and grow almost all of our veg, we have a variety of fruit trees too, apple,plum, pear and a olive tree and a grape vine in the conservatory in the ground , they built the conservatory around it :yes: I’m really looking forward to making it into a home, it has a few maintenance jobs to do before the end of the year, but nothing major. :-) You sound like your having fun in your new home too :rose:

  15. Hopefully you will thoroughly enjoy your new home I hope you will both be very happy there. Happy garden happy home :rose: ;-)

    It looks a grand building lynn with lots of scope, would be nice to step out of the kitchen and grab a bit of veg from the garden. Plenty photos of the progress. :good:

  18. Thanks Dixon, yep it will be great having the veg garden in the garden and being able to pick it and cook it straight away :yes: :good:
