''Floor there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. To the rear of the property there is a one bedroom annex and outbuildings."
Man transforms old house
In another story, a young man with the Twitter handle @chuuzus has shown people how they could achieve much with little when it comes to interior design.
In a post on Sunday, May 2, he shared photos of a room he totally changed. Before the transformation, the room was almost bare and only had a stand fan, centre rug and a few other things.
He repainted the whole room white and adorned the walls with beautiful portraits. The colour of his side stool and bed also matched the general painting.
