Ben graduated from Oxford & Cambridge in 2010 and embarked on the restoration of this wonderful house with his partner and two Airedale terriers, Lily & Iris. The house has undergone an enormous transformation in the last few years and has all the original features of this 17th-Century house restored by a team of highly skilled traditional craftsmen.
Whilst still working on the house in the Cotswolds, Ben has also been working on several other refurbishment projects and is currently completing work on a property in West Hollywood, California.
