Last year we spent a few days in the pretty seaside town of Port Fairy and it got us thinking that we'd really love to live there, or at least have a holiday house there ...
... and this week we bought one! It needs a lot of work, but we're planning to take our time and gradually transform it into a cosy retreat.
The main bedroom (presented here as a sitting room) has an open fireplace, as does the lounge room, and the kitchen has a quirky vintage feel.
I've already spent several sleepless nights planning a wonderful garden upgrade (Tanya, I see more fruit tree orders heading your way!), a bright and relaxed kitchen (retaining the older styling), light and cosy soft furnishings, fresh paint on the walls ....
G is researching and planning lots of tricky-looking, very manly*, DIY stuff too.
I think we may have bought the worst house in the best street, and I can hardly wait to bring it back to life so we can enjoy many happy days there with friends and family.
A big project, but so much fun!
* I was prompted to put that in, but I won't disagree. I'm grateful for the hard stuff being taken care of!
