12 months ago...

Some 12 months ago, a friend of Matt's who was researching Warren & Mahoney homes, came across this gem. He took the following photos, forwarded them to Matt, and we were hooked.

We visited the property a couple of months later, but only had a brief look around the interior (we didn't even see the laundry or the spare rooms upstairs, and I couldn't for the life of me remember what the kitchen looked like). We then contacted the owner (it was tenanted) and spent the subsequent nine months negotiating to buy the property.

The negotiation was horrendous, we got a builder's report which was all doom and gloom, yet we'd fallen in love, and weren't to be deterred.

To say the owner was difficult was an understatement. He had spent no money on the house in the 12 years he'd owned it, despite it's slow deterioration.

Anyway, we took possession last week.... The initial photos to follow.
