New Life in the Country host Sarah Beeny, 49, has encouraged prospective buyers to pick houses with walls, rather than ones that are designed with open-plan living spaces. The property expert issued the advice while discussing her preference to maintain some “space” away from her husband, Graham Swift, at times in their home.
Sarah argued that despite its current popularity, the trend for airy living spaces is not “the solution to happiness”.
The star also admitted she is avoiding knocking down walls at her home on a 22-acre sheep farm she’s renovating with her other half.
The presenter explained she sees the importance of the option to not have to “see the other’s face or hear them” at all times.
Opening up about her beliefs in reference to her living space that she shares with her husband of 18 years, Sarah said: “I’m not convinced that taking down every wall and living in an aircraft hangar is actually that great.

“In fact, for most people – even if it’s just two of you – it’s quite nice to have a space where you don’t have to see the other’s faces sometimes or hear them.
“It’s quite nice to be able to shut the door.”
Sarah, who shares sons Rafferty, Charlie, Laurie and Billy with Graham, went on to share another candid admission about her relationship with her other half.
She added to the Daily Star that they have been through “ups and downs” like any couple.
However, despite their disagreements over the years, she insisted they are unlikely to divorce, as Graham very accurately explained why they’d never split.
Sarah said Graham told her: “‘Bearing in mind you’re not going to divorce me and I’m not going to divorce you – because I’m not prepared not to see the children all the time and neither are you – we’re going to say married.
“‘So, we can either stay married and be miserable, or we can stay married and have a laugh’.”
Sarah recently gave fans an insight into her home life with her family on Sarah Beeny’s New Life in the Country on Channel 4.

The star’s programme documented how they swapped London for Somerset to renovate a farm they bought in 2018.
Sarah’s four boys also featured quite a lot in the programme.
However, their frequent appearances prompted one viewer to ask if they found the filming experience intrusive.
They asked the presenter on Twitter: “Think we all want to see the next chapter, do you want a second series?
“Do the boys find it intrusive at all?”
Fortunately, Sarah was quick to reply with good news for the fan.
She wrote back: “No think they quite enjoy it!
“Second series coming up!! X.”
