Beeny’s Restoration Nightmare

Sarah Beeny, well-known for readjusting would-be developers in Channel 4’s Property Ladder, takes on her own renovation project and it’s a developer’s nightmare.

Now Sarah can listen to her own voice as she takes on an incredible property challenge during this 3 part mini-series at Rise Hall near Hull.

According to reviews, the opening clips are of the rather grand hall in question, but it’s all a bit Downton Abbey meets Emmerdale as we kick proceedings off with some shots of rolling hills, great expanses of water and a regal stately home. Beeny is then found sat in front of a roaring fire talking about the massive task ahead of her.

Sarah Beeny's Restoration Nightmare

The project comes complete with just about every developer’s nightmare; the ceilings are leaking, fungus is growing on the walls and there appear to be several types of plant sprouting out of the bathroom fixtures. It becomes quickly apparent that the main concern for the couple is going to be money, and it is certainly invigorating to see Beeny struggle to cope with an escalating budget whilst having to try and practice what she has preached to the nation for so long. But as the narrator, actor Stephen Tomkinson, explains, failure for Sarah is not an option.

The 97-room wreck of a Georgian house set in 30 acres of Capability Brown parkland that Sarah Beeny and her husband plan to turn into a wedding venue. But Rise Hall is a “money pit” says Beeny, as she sets about transforming a 1970s gym built when Rise was a school, into a banqueting hall. In the midst of a recession when people are losing their homes, it’s hard to care about the success of what is really a business venture.

Really looking forward to this one
Some how i can only imagine it will work out well, unless would they really show it on Channel 4?

    I see Beeny’s Restoration Nightmare had just over 2.2 million viewers on 18th November.

    Beeny’s attempt to turn a dilapidated stately home into a venue for wedding and events attracted an average audience of 2.253 million and a 9% audience share from 8pm. Another 297,000 watched an hour later on Channel 4 +1.
