Louis de Soissons had rented a flat in London but his first marital home in Norfolk was a pretty Georgian house. “It was pocket-sized, small but perfectly formed, he said.
“I bought it in about 1987 for about £100,000 when I was 25 years old and I remember it had lovely sash windows. We completely redecorated it and we had a solid fuel Aga and I remember we really got into gardening. It had five cottagey bedrooms, they weren’t big, a sitting room, dining room, a nice big kitchen and a cellar – brick built which I enjoyed filling up with wine! We actually only had it for about a year. I really wanted somewhere with more land and we were expanding, my wife was expecting our first child and we also wanted to be further away from Norwich.”
