Our Meta Makeover from Cheswick Village is available on the web, and from the iTunes store.
In this show we made over a lovely and unique Victorian house in the Cheswick Village estate, owned by Bracken Back and Samaria Arai.
Bracken and Samaria have run Cheswick Village for some time, offering spacious and elegant Tudor rentals located in a lush country setting. Their houses have frequently been custom made, but now they are looking to create a new area – with Victorian custom-made homes. These are unusual because, while many builders choose to build on level sky platforms, and then lower the homes onto flat land, Bracken has built in situ, allowing the contours of the land to shape his houses, with interesting results.
We asked Soleil Snook of Snook’s Garden Centre to landscape the house, and Jeannie Moonflower of Bygone Days to furnish the inside. Watch how they worked with this lovely and unusual house – and how Jeannie created wonderful stories around the house, and a thriving business to be located in the basement!
