Sneaky sellers hide favourite treat in every room

Selling a home can be an emotionally draining experience, especially if you’re saying goodbye to a place you’ve called home for almost a quarter of a century.

But if you had one last chance to enjoy some playful mischief before selling up, what would you do?

Here’s what Lucy Strachan did after she and husband John decided to list their family home – in the heart of Scotland’s Pentland Hills – for sale on Rightmove back in May.

As Lucy sat down with Savills photographer Sean for a cup of coffee, before taking pictures for her Rightmove listing, she became tearful at the thought of cutting ties with Harperrig House, the five-bedroom West Lothian home where she’d raised a family.

But Lucy and Sean then discovered they had a shared love of something 50% of people hate. Marmite!

Lucy has an extensive collection of Marmite pots in all shapes, sizes and designs acquired over the years. On the couple’s 25th wedding anniversary, John even gave his wife an engraved silver Marmite top.

So, to cheer Lucy up, Sean hid a pot of Marmite in each of the interior photographs, challenging her to find them.

Lucy said: “Sean turned something which could have been really awful into a fun afternoon. Seeing the tiny pots hidden in various nooks and crannies makes me smile.”
