A very happy New Year to all from Richard and me!
2017 ended on a positive note for Pullen Real Estate. We completed on the sale of one of our most iconic properties on the last working day of the year. Those of you who have followed our progress over the years will remember the ‘Horse’ House’, so called for the picture of a beautiful white horse in the garden, which somewhat overshadowed the house itself!
Be that as it may, the house was still the star. This majestic property was in a dilapidated state but still possess an allure, mainly due to it’s grand proportions and the many period features found throughout the house.
Over the period that we had it as a listing, it attracted many interested clients but most of them were put off by the sheer scale of this renovation project. Not so Wilfred Pol and Edwin Van Rheede! Wilfred & Edwin are a young Dutch couple from Amsterdam, looking for a change from their frantic lives in Amsterdam, and for a new challenge. Located in the pretty, winemaking village of Raissac d’Aude, the Horse House presented them with the perfect opportunity.
Armed with their respective skills and expertises, Wilfred and Edwin have grand plans to transform this very special property into a home for themselves and a welcoming chambres d’hôtes/gite for guests to enjoy. They have kindly agreed to share their journey with us by way of a regular blog on this site. We hope that you will join us, as we follow them on their life changing journey in the South of France…….
We wish them the very best!
