'Our home really reflects our personalities'

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!

You can find out more about Sara's mid-terraced cottage by purchasing our September issue, available as a digital download for only £0.99 here.
