Woman splurges £250k to transform rundown three-bed house into luxurious home

A woman has splurged a whopping £250,000 on transforming her rundown three-bedroom house into a luxurious property.

Katy Wilson, 36, planned to renovate her home for years which now includes two en-suites, an office and a roof terrace.

She bought her detached 1930s house in Derbyshire back in February 2015.

The work, which started in 2018, includes a two-storey side extension for two new bedrooms.

Also she added a single storey extension with a new kitchen, utility, snug and playroom.

Speaking to LadBible, she said: "The trickiest part was going through planning to get external cladding on the house passed.

"We eventually got this through. My favourite room is our bedroom."

Katy stripped back the rest of the property to plaster before rewiring and adding bespoke joining and underfloor heating.

While renovating the home, she decided to change the external facade of the property to give the garden a new look.

She has since documented the project on Instagram, where she has over 51,000 followers.

Now she is encouraging others to renovate their properties themselves.

Katy added: "Inbuilt storage or bespoke carpentry doesn't cost the earth and can really elevate a space.

"I would always recommend storage solutions as part of your project planning – and trust me, you will thank yourselves later."

She continued: "Research is so important – good preparation brings less stress further down the line. It isn't as scary as you think."

The homeowner estimates the cost of the project, as well as landscaping the garden, was an eye-watering £250,000.
