Cornwall news Beach-obsessed couple seek 'dream home' in Cornwall UK news
PremierLeague-News.Com - Cornwall - The pair were looking to relocate to the coast they both adored
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A 'seaside-obsessed' couple from Fleet were searching for their dream beachy home in Cornwall on today's episode of Escape to the Country. Sam, a software analyst, and Pauline, a retired laboratory technician, were looking for their perfect house near the Cornish coastline, after growing tired of the noise and bustle of their neighbourhood. Their current property in Fleet, Hampshire had been painted 'beach-hut blue' and decorated with a host of seaside-themed décor, including a lighthouse, beach huts, and adorable statues of sailboats. Sam said the "beachy memorabilia" was from the couple's wedding - also beach themed. The pair were looking to leave behind their home of six years, and were hoping to say farewell to the busy road and new builds near their bungalow in Fleet, to swap them for the sound of splashing waves.

Sam added that "now would be a good time" to make the move, before "[Pauline] is too old to make the most of what Cornwall has to offer," to his wife's laughter. Sam continued: "We'd like to do things like paddle-boarding and surfing, and all those things we want to explore and learn to do that we don't have time for in a normal holiday. Cause a week is never long enough." With a budget of £475,000, the pair sought a bungalow with two bedrooms, two reception rooms, and a study. Presenter Denise Nurse said they wanted a "garden big enough to 'grow their own,'" and Pauline hoped for a workshop. Starting in Helston, the first property was located on the edge of the town, with 'lovely country views' and a decently-sized driveway. While the 'airy' kitchen was smaller than the pair hoped for, the romantic countryside views through the master bedroom made up for it. And coming in well below budget at £375,000, the pair seemed more than impressed.

The pair were then sent for another look, with the unexpectedly low price in mind.

. The second property was "moments from the high street" in Helston, just down the road from the first one. Walking down a narrow side street, the pair were taken through to the hidden garden to view the house - which received an immediate 'wow' from Pauline. The "different looking" property was a chalet bungalow, with rooms in the roof. Built by the owners, the brief given to the architect was to maximise space and light - and the couple were immediately impressed with the size of the kitchen in this quirky property. While the couple felt it needed 'modernising', they enjoyed the light and airy nature of the property, and the extra space in the roof. Going for £450,000, the chalet bungalow featured three bedrooms, a well-established garden with stunning views across the area, and a total of three bedrooms. Pauline said it was "not what [she] was expecting from the middle of Helston" with such big windows and well lit space. Sam added he was "quite blown away by the property as a whole", saying the only issue was that it was "a bit further away from the sea" than the pair were initially hoping for. Denise then took them to the mystery property - a renovated schoolhouse located in Roscroggan. The pair loved the unique windows on the house, and the character of the old property, though Pauline appeared disappointed by how dark the living area was. That all changed when the couple moved through to the kitchen, which provided a lot of space and a lot of light. While Sam was on board, Pauline needed more convinving. The five bedroom property also came with a 'substantial' garden, and was on the market for £450,000. Sam said that, while the old building had a 'huge amount of potential', he wasn't sure if they were the right people to 'do all of that work' on the property. The pair did not decide to put an offer on any of the properties listed, saying that the experience had "opened their eyes" to some new areas to search for their dream home, and potentially consider some different properties.
