flat for an old 40-metre-high castle tower. They have spent five years turning it into a beautiful home with
six floors, winning three architectural prizes.
“I love the space, and being private,” Elizabeth says. “You feel separated from the world. If I’m in
the kitchen, which is 25 metres above the ground floor, and the doorbell rings, I don’t have to answer it
because visitors can’t see I’m in!”
“There are 142 steps to the top, so I go up and down five or six times a day, it’s very good
exercise! But having to carry heavy things to the top is terrible, so I never buy two bags of shopping from
the supermarket at a time. Apart from that, it’s a brilliant place to live.”
“When we first saw the place, I asked my father’s advice about buying it, because we couldn’t
decide. After paying for it, we were a bit worried because it looked awful. But we really loved it, and
knew how we wanted to it look.”
“Living here can be difficult-yesterday I climbed a four-metre ladder to clean the windows. But
when you stand on the roof you can see all the way out to sea on a clear day, and that’s a wonderful
experience. I’m really glad we moved.”
