Moving Home

It's a long tale really, but the Rectory here has never been up to Provincial or Diocesan standards for a Rectory, and is hopeless and hellish for a priest to work from, having no really practical study space. It would be hopeless, too, for a family to live in.

Last week this property came on the market and we cheekily put in an offer for £175k. It was accepted, and the Estate Agent has valued the current house to be much on a par, if not slightly more expensive than the 
repossession we are buying! So..... moving house at the end of January! And I get a study too!

Looks good! Hope the move goes smoothly, and that you're happy in your new home.

We shall, of course, expect a house-warming party! ;-)

Given all the disclaimers in the ad, is the heat actually working in the house?

Fr Kenny said...

Yeah. It's a repossession, so no guarantees come for anything. There's no indication that there will be a problem. The heating system is fairly new!
