Hoping to join her boyfriend Down Under, 26-year-old London lawyer Maria is desperate to sell her childhood home in Copthorne, Sussex. But after ten months – and a whopping £50,000 price cut – she hasn’t received a single offer. The three-bedroom, 1960s detached home on a quiet cul-de-sac would be perfect for a young family… But with its brown broadloom, retro furnishings, and lifeless rooms, the interiors are stuck in a time warp. (The barren back garden isn’t making a great impression either.)
Enter real estate experts John Rennie and Sofie Allsopp. They vow to make the home stand out from the crowd. And, as John encourages a guerilla marketing campaign, and whittles two agents down to one, Sofie overhauls the garden, and adds personality and warmth to the interiors. Can they reveal the retro property’s potential?
