Inspiration Wednesday – Fix Up Edition!

Looking back at this year, we have found many properties that would benefit from some TLC and a lick of paint! Ranging from quaint farm houses to old vicarages, there is something for everyone here, especially if you’re looking for an exciting DIY project in the New Year. Here are our top six properties that could flourish with a fix up!



This six bedroomed detached house is a Grade II listed vicarage bursting with potential. Constructed over two storeys, the property has still got many of its original features, including hung sashes of twelve pains! With a lick of paint and some new carpets, this could be an amazing investment, especially as it also has a beautiful, large garden!


1.1 1.2


This beautiful farm house is set in 12 acres of land and is located in the heart of rural Smarden. The interior of the property is in need of lots of restoration and care, but it clearly has bags of potential in becoming a charming country home. In particular, each room has large windows which provide the rooms with plenty of light, whilst giving a stunning view out to the surrounding fields.


2.1 2.2


This stunning Grade II manor house offers a fantastic opportunity to refurbish a stunning property. It is settled in the heart of Rudloe, and is in an ‘Area of Outstanding Beauty’ with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside! The manor dates back to the 17th Century, and it still has a number of beautiful ancient features, such as stone archways and ceiling beams. With some work this property has bags of potential!


3.1 3.2


This property is another disused farm house, and it has a range of both traditional and modern buildings, whilst being set in 45 acres of land, with stunning valley views. Located in the beautifully named ‘Sunny Corner’ in Truro, once this property is brightened up with decoration and furniture it will make a lovely home.


4.1 4.2


This charming three bedroomed cottage is surprisingly spacious, and combines typical features of a quaint period cottage with modern central heating and double glazing systems. It is located in Flempton, North West of Bury St Edmunds, and it backs on to open countryside, making it perfect for anyone who wants to live in a rural setting close to urbanisation.


5.1 5.2


This final property is a particularly interesting one, as it offers a unique opportunity to develop a commercial site. Set in 1.3 acres in Aldershot, it includes parking for over 45 vehicles, a secure yard area, and a detached office building!
