    Description

    Chris and I have three grown up children and a rescue dog called Daisy. We lived in London until recently when we moved to the Kent Coast. We have an 18th Century house with lovely views if the sea. The beach is a five minute walk away. The house has two small flats on the second floor. The house has been very neglected in the past and although structurally sound is in need of much work! Chris is an experienced "renovator" having transformed all our past homes both in the UK France and Spain. We are hoping to develop a garden that will meet our fruit and veg needs but still look pretty with lots of all year round colour.
