Dean Poulton Saving The Manor HGTV
Dean and his fiancee Borja De Maqua are the hosts of HGTV home improvement show \’Saving the Manor\’. In the show, the couple are restoring a 5-building, 65-room Georgian manor on land once owned by King Henry VII. They have been restoring the historic 65-room Warwickshire estate for the last three and a half years since they bought it in March 2018.
The couple said they didn\’t plan to buy the estate but they just fell in love with it after they saw it.
“Why did we buy an estate? It’s just because we fell in love. We never planned on buying this project. This just came up! We were being nosy. We went to have a look, and when you fall in love, you fall in love.”
During an interview with Country Homes & Interior they said that one one else wanted the estate they were the only ones that viewed it.
\”While away on holiday, I happened to glance online at commercial properties in Warwickshire. It was then I saw that the manor house that we’d often pass on our way to work was for sale. Although the details showed just three photographs, triggering alarm bells about its condition, it piqued our interest. We couldn’t wait to view the estate, located in Coleshill, a quaint coaching town.
We offered as much as we could, taking all the unknown factors into consideration. When we heard back, hearing the offer had been accepted, we were like, Shoot! I bet we have offered too much! We were expecting a counter offer at the very least. The reality was that no one wanted to get near the place. We were the only ones that viewed it.”
Part of the estate is already opened as they opened the Caretakers Cottage in May 2021 to short term renters. The cottage is a wo-bedroom structure within the estate’s courtyard that once accommodated staff who worked at the property.
