A Historical Home in England

I love period homes. So when I came across a home dating back to 1435, I was certainly intrigued. This lovely home is located in the town of Haslemere, in Surrey, England.  During the English Civil War, Oliver Cromwell's soldiers were stationed here! Since I have studied British History in depth, the history of this house fascinates me!  

The present owners Annie and Nicholas Jackson have lovingly restored this country home and given it a style that is their own. Annie has a weakness for red and therefore the entire house has splashes of red everywhere. The house has white washed walls. The home is rustic and elegant combined with flea market style and filed with some lovely antiques.

It is pretty, warm and inviting......don't you think??

Love the home and the tid-bit of history that went along with it. I think the red is the perfect choice:)
