When we viewed the house in August 2007 it was crammed full of big, dark and heavy furniture. Also tons of “brocante”. There was so much of it that it was difficult to make out how big the room was.
The agent told us that the seller wanted to let the contents go with the house and if we didn’t want to buy it she would probably leave it all behind anyway. We sincerely hoped not! None of it was particularly nice or to our taste.
Luckily when we took possession of the house it had all gone! We had arranged to meet the agent at the property to have a look at it an hour before our final appointment at the notaire’s office. When he opened the door and walked in the look on his face was priceless – it was completely empty, much to our delight. Getting rid of all that stuff would have taken a lot of brocantes and vide greniers !!
Nick still thinks we have too many ornaments and other bits and pieces around the place – but looking at the agent’s photo makes me realise we haven’t got quite that bad yet !!
Have a good week and enjoy the sun………l’été est arrivé !!
