Sackville Street Bedrooms

When purchased, Sackville Street had 2 bedrooms which included a large one at the front. From the beginning, the plan was to create/reinstate a third bedroom/study. This we did with a stud wall at one end of the main bedroom. This still left a decent size bedroom, as shown in most of the following pictures.

The bed came from an advert on Facebook marketplace costing £21. Please note the missing crystal knob bottom right leg. Apparently, the grandchildren were recreating Bedknobs & Broomsticks and broke it!! Readers of an age will know what I mean.

Sackville Street Renovation

Sackville Street

We bought this property at auction towards the end of last year. Having stood empty for several months this Edwardian end of terrace house was in need of a lot of TLC and renovation to bring it back to its former glory. Sackville Street is in the boot and shoe town of Raunds and housed one of the many factories before they all closed in the 1980s. The new house in the left of the picture was built, together with 20 others, on the site of one of those factories.
