JT012: The History House
Photography by Julia Toms/Narratives
Text & Styling by Sian Lewis/Narratives
Location: Cornwall, UK

Gemma and Jonathan, live in a six-bedroom former rectory on the Cornish coast. The oldest part of the house can be traced back to the 16 th century, although records show a dwelling, probably wooden, on the site as early as the 14th century.
Though habitable when they bought it in 2004, the couple have completely refurbished the three-storey house.
This swath of Cornish coast, with its hidden coves and ragged cliff edges has inspired many stories. Tales abound of smugglers, wreckers, miners and men of the cloth striving to convert all around them. It is a landscape that continues to
fascinate. In 2004, when Gemma and Jonathan saw pictures online of the rundown former rectory they now call home, with views across the fields to the sea, they both knew it was the perfect place to begin the next chapter of their lives together.
