Kate Tre­go­ning con­verted a farm into a lux­ury home

WHO LIVES HERE?

Kate Tre­go­ning and hus­band An­drew swapped Lon­don for Devon when their twins were al­most nine. ‘We wanted more fam­ily time while the girls were still young,’ Kate says. ‘My par­ents farmed for 30 years and were ready to re­tire, so we bought their house on 10 acres to set up a glamp­ing ven­ture (brown­scombe.co.uk). Our ar­chi­tect sug­gested a com­plete re-build and build­ing an an­nexe for my par­ents. I wasn’t sure how my sis­ters would feel about it, but they were sup­port­ive. I wanted the house to be some­where that the whole fam­ily could en­joy.’
