Episode 9: George Clarke's Build a New Life in the Country: St Ives

Summary

Architect George Clarke meets a London couple hoping to sell their organic cafe in Brixton, south London, and spend a £1million bank loan converting a run-down hotel in St Ives, Cornwall, into three houses, one of which will be used as a designer B&B. They face a race against time to have the middle property finished and on the market by Christmas, so they can concentrate on getting the guesthouse open before Easter.
