Victorian Townhouse with a Modern Twist

After years of rural living, seasoned property renovators Catherine and Rupert decided to move their growing family to a spacious Victorian townhouse in the heart of Sevenoaks. After extensive modernisation, in a very short timeframe, they have succeeded in creating the ideal space to accommodate the needs of their family including the bespoke kitchen Catherine has always dreamed of.

We can all justify our weakness for the countryside with talk of a healthier environment for our children, better schooling and, of course, more mortar for our money but the truth is there is something deep in our national psyche that seems to draw us from city to countryside. True, many of us grew up in the countryside and it’s just a matter of roots but even city born-and-bred seem to feel the call of rural life.

By and large the country move seems to be a success, particularly for families with young children. But no family is a static animal. As children grow, their priorities change. As the dreaded teens approach, the idyllic acre or two and the local woods and streams that once seemed so magical to them begin to be viewed as Stalag 53. They want out and their tunnelling slowly begins to undermine the dream. Some parents, too, find that undiluted rural life has reached its sell-by date and begin to look for a compromise that will satisfy their family’s new circumstances.

And so it was for Catherine and Rupert who made the break from London following a number of successful projects in town and found a rural property in Brasted which was to prove their most ambitious.
