Before We Did Anything
The love affair with Cowshed 488 started many years before we got the keys...From the day that I moved to the West Coast, I spent many a day admiring this beautiful villa DYING to get my hands on it! Nearly five years later we were exchanging keys and had access to the house.
Stephen thought I was completely insane wanting to buy an old house - reminding me daily that we were purchasing the house in the summer months when it would be warm, but come winter it would be colder inside than out! Clearly didn't deter me and we went ahead with the purchase...
Here are some photos of the house before we even laid a hand on it.
