Is the house worth saving?
Hi everyone. Some of you may have seen my other post about my derelict dream home. It's an 1880s gothic revival cottage- stucco, sash windows, beautiful peaked roof with trellis- with incredible sea views and huge windows. The sea views are south facing, the driveway is west facing, the back of the house is east facing to catch the sunrise over trees. Absolutely perfect.
But the inside is in dreadful condition- the roof is partially caved in, ceiling destroyed with damp, floors have collapsed, interior walls have been kicked in by hooligans and all windows have been smashed. It's almost impossible to imagine the layout, although I know that downstairs has one tiny bathroom, 2 living rooms with a fireplace each, a back kitchen and a back bedroom. Upstairs has three bedrooms, a large bathroom and absolutely incredible sea views from the landing. My boyfriend and i are completely in love, however we are just 18 and 19 years old.
Do you think the house is worth saving? Or should we just start from scratch?
