It’s horses for courses, Katy. My daughter bought a “Character” cottage end of last year. Paid too much for it in our opinion but there was not much available. It’s lovely but too many “characterful idiosyncracies” that drive me nuts. I’m always drawn to brand spanking new. I can put my own mark on it without spending blood sweat and tears on other peoples choices. The older properties that I like have a £1.5 to £3mill+ price tag. Champagne taste, cava budget! 😆

Hmmm I sometimes have a feeling we may have paid too much for our “character” home. I still love it and as you say not much around last year. We were outbidded twice on other houses. A barn partly converted went on sale this year in our village, only 2 beds and 1 bath, inside photos nothing special but has a large garden with views. Offers around £550,000. Villagers said they wouldn’t get it but it sold quickly at £685,000 😯
