Caring for a historic house
This is a Grade II-listed, stone-built historic property that will always have something in need of repair; it goes along with owning a home of this age and type.
Consider the ongoing needs.
The winner should expect to put in some time “putting their stamp” on the house and doing repairs, upgrades, refinishing and redecorating. However, the 2009 refurbishment of the main house was carried out by contractors appointed by the insurer, Hiscox, so was done to a good standard.
