Last Thursday Sietske and I returned from two amazing weeks in York in the UK. The journey was extra special this time as we visited Coos and Abhay’s new home for the first time. We’d only seen it on photos, but now we could see it in the flesh.
Coos and Abhay have put a lot of work in the house: they’ve put in wooden floors, plastered walls, and painted everything. The atmosphere of the house is truly wonderful. I’d say that they are actually living in my dream house, as the house has all the elements that I really love: there’s different levels, even on the top floor. It’s all up-and-down small stairs.
The house is a proper picture from the outside as well, with stable doors, and a balcony. And then there’s the roof-top terrace, which makes it possible to do some gardening. There’s a stable door with a little roof on top, which I really like. How beautiful and inspiring it was to stay in the Coach House with two very sweet men and their cats Mira and Neko!
