Sarah Johns and Steve Krosnar-Clarke both have very successful careers in the Royal Navy. Their leave is severely limited so when they can have time off, they want a place they can instantly feel at home in, spending quality time together with Steve’s two teenage children. Although the property they are searching for is going to be an investment in the short term, it is eventually going to be somewhere they can retire to. Deciding between a second home on the Cornish coast or a retreat in the mountains of Northern Italy is not going to be easy for the adventurous couple, who spend their spare time running marathons and hiking.
Properties in Cornwall
A popular retirement destination beloved by tourists and property owners alike, Cornwall’s rugged landscapes and popularity with visitors make it an ideal location for a second home, especially for a couple as into hiking as Sarah and Steve. The seafarers can also take comfort in the fact that you will never be more than 20 miles away from the sea anywhere in Cornwall.
Properties in Italy
Leaving England behind, Jasmine shows the couple properties in the beautiful mountains of Northern Italy where they can benefit from summer hiking and winter skiing.
Will Steve and Sarah choose home or away?
