Plan for self-suf­fi­cient home

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

SINCE Rachel and her fam­ily moved out, the for­mer game­keeper’s cottage has re­mained empty.

Now, more than 30 years since any­one has lived there, her for­mer home has fi­nally found a new owner.

Prop­erty de­vel­oper Ja­son Reece, 46, from Dig­gle, bought the house at auc­tion for £200,000 and hopes to turn it into a mod­ern, self­sus­tain­ing home.

Speak­ing of his plans to re­vive the old home. he told the M.E.N.: “I live in Dig­gle and we have known about the house for about 20 years and I was in­ter­ested then but couldn’t do it at the time.

“We build new houses and do cus­tom work so the plan is to see if we can make this self­suf­fi­cient, us­ing so­lar pan­els and bio-fuel gen­er­a­tor.

“It is a lit­tle bit of a gam­ble, I guess.” Ja­son Reece
