79-year old Hazel has been living in her farmhouse in Kent since 1962, but now she’s taking on the ultimate challenge and moving house for the first time in over 50 years.
Charlie Luxton follows the move of a lifetime for Hazel, as well as her beloved dog Lucy, as she makes the brave decision to turn an old disused oast house in Kent into her dream forever home. She’s not moving far though - it’s only 50 steps away - but it’s going to be a tough build.
Hazel’s oast house wasn’t designed to be lived in and has seen years of neglect so turning it into a modern practical home definitely won’t be easy! Armed with a budget of £270,000 Hazel along with long-term friend Glyn, have bold plans for this oast house but will her builder Stu be able to deliver the goods in this job of a lifetime? Hampered by the oast house’s dilapidated state, not to mention bad weather and trying to fit squared good into round structures, Stu and his team will have to think outside the box to turn this classic round shaped building into Hazel's dream home.
