The property before the renovation

The original workers’ cottage dates to the 1800s and is in almost three acres of gardens. It takes its name from the garden of Eden, as it is known locally, due to an abundance of fruit trees on the grounds.

Mark Worrall of Moving Works, which is the estate agency marketing Eden House, said: “This is one of the most stunning homes we’ve ever seen.

“The owners have poured their heart and soul into it, and it really shows. Putting aside all estate agent hyperbole, this is an incredible home, especially when you see what it used to be like.

“You not only get a property that creates a feeling of being elsewhere in the world, but you also have 2.78 acres of land, five bedrooms with three balconies overlooking those grounds and a garage with dual access that is ideal for car enthusiasts. It’s got to be seen to be truly appreciated.”

The transformation and the sellers’ emotional reactions feature in a short video filmed by MovingWorks.

The video shares the story of the transformation, including the owners’ heartfelt moment of reflection, questioning why they are selling the property.

The owners have decided to move on from Eden House to spend more time travelling and enjoying some of the African and Asian cultures evident in the property.
