Designers Sarah and Mickey swapped busy Newcastle city centre for peaceful Seaburn in search of a better work-life balance in 2019.

The Victorian property, which dates back to 1910 and is only a 10-minute walk from the seafront, still boasts many of its original period features.

Sarah, who is originally from Seaham, said: “I love this area, I think it’s a hidden gem.

"It was a nice enough house, but it was a blank canvas and we wanted to put our mark on it.

“We’ve tried to keep the character of the house. We’ve kept all the original brick in the living room. There are a couple of broken bits but it’s quite nice to keep, because that is part of the story of the house.”

The renovation journey of the house is being documented on the home’s Instagram account @the_seaburn_house, which has garnered more than 6,000 followers.

Sarah has advised those who are renovating at the moment to plan and complete one room first before continuing with the rest of the refurb. She said: “Try and get one room finished so you’ve got somewhere to retreat to.”
