Sara Carlton wasn’t looking to move when this cottage came on the market. But despite all the work which needed doing, she fell in love
A bit about me
Hi, I’m Sara Carlton. I live with my boyfriend Chris and our adopted cat, Elvis.
Where I live
My home is a three-bedroomed 1800s mid-terraced cottage in a small village on the outskirts of Bishop Auckland. We have lived here since 2013.
What I wanted to change
The house was a complete renovation project. We knew when we bought it that we had a lot of work to do!
How I made it my own
We renovated the whole house, so we were lucky to be able to create a space that we wanted.
My favourite part
I love the bathroom. It’s my sanctuary. I always wanted a claw foot free standing bath. Luckily, we found a corner one that was just perfect!
