Synopsis
Most couples would need a period of recovery after finishing the restoration of a five storey Georgian house in Bath. But not Sara and Nick Loxton. In 1999, they traded the Georgian gem for an unrestored cottage down the road.  “I was pregnant with our son Frederick,” Sara explains, “and five floors was too much. A cottage with two floors seemed just right!” Describing their new home as a cottage is a little misleading. It was originally three mill cottages built in Bath stone around 1830 but by the 1970s the three had been knocked into one. As Nick Loxton laments, “there were a lot of rooms, each devoid of a single architectural feature. The conversions had been made cheaply and piecemeal and there was no flow between rooms. Moving through the house felt like walking into a series of dead ends.”
