OK, having put me through the mill for weeks, the prospective buyer of this lovely home and land said last Friday she would exchange contracts this week as long as a drainage survey was OK. Drainage survey was done today. It was fine. She has now pulled out completely.
So, tell your friends as this place is very definitely on the market. And very definitely lovely. At least it is now available to the right person.
And if any one out there is ever selling a house beware of Dr Fiona Goodwin!
