I just loved the amazing room sizes

Sara and Steve Green transformed a once dark and dated Victorian wreck into a family home that’s full of space and character

Five years ago Sara and Stephen Green decided they wanted to look for a more substantial family home, having outgrown their modern property on a new development. ‘We were in a newish three-bedroom house already but wanted to move to this part of town for the schools,’ explains Sara. ‘We didn’t really know what we wanted – just something with more room, in the right part of town,’ she adds. When they came to view their Victorian home in October 2010 – which at the time was nothing more than a neglected wreck – the couple could never have imagined it would eventually become their dream family home. ‘It had been completely untouched for years but we could really visualise what it could be like,’ says Sara. ‘I adore Victorian properties and it had so much potential. It was my dream house really!’

This semi-detached house is quite deceptive, with a narrowish tall town house feel from the front, but with three big double bedrooms, a beautiful bay fronted, very spacious, living room, and a stylish dining room that leads into a kitchen at the back of the house.

Looking out onto both the front and back of the house, the spacious living room has plenty of natural light. For the walls sara opted for a timeless combination of Pressed Thistle and engraved locket from Dulux. sara bought her tall living room mirror from eBay, while the lovely chandeliers are a family heirloom

About Your Home Magazine

Now that the nights are long and there’s a definite nip in the air, it’s time to make sure your home is as comfy and cosy as it can be, as we’ll be spending a lot more time indoors over the next few months. Our trend alert on p.20 this month is inspired by misty moors and the rich colours are perfect for giving your home a warm and welcoming feel. And if you’re thinking of getting a new sofa before your family and friends arrive for Christmas, then make sure you read our expert guide on p.36 for all the information and inspiration you need to pick your perfect settee. We also take a look at the latest ovens which are big on style and features, but kind to your pocket – ideal for cooking your Christmas dinner (p.48). If you’re thinking of moving home in the New Year, then turn to p.106 to find out how to discover where the latest property hotspots are in your area. Bonfire night is a great excuse to have a get-together before we all get too busy in the run-up to the festive season. On p.100 we’ve got some fantastic recipe ideas for you to try at your fireworks party – I particularly love the spectacular bonfire cake, it’s a real showstopper that will definitely ‘wow’ your guests! As always we’ve got some stunning makeovers, including kitchen diner revamps packed with clever ideas (p.24), plus some gorgeous reader homes that I know you’ll find inspiring (p.73).
