“Do you remember Susan Boyle? After delivering an incredible performance of ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ on Britain’s Got Talent, she instantly became famous.
Susan is still doing well, even though she doesn’t receive as much attention these days.
She has sold 25 million albums, traveled the world, and been nominated for two Grammys. But Susan has in no way been affected by her fame.
In fact, even though she has the money to live anywhere in the world, she would much rather settle in the Scottish house where she grew up.
What a wonderful upbringing Susan had! She was the eldest of nine children, four boys and five girls. Two sisters shared her room with her.
As an adult, one might think she would be happy to have a bit more space, but Susan’s website says the house means a lot to her.
So much so that when she received her first check from her record company, she bought it back.
However, Susan had no intention of keeping her house in its former state. She did what anyone with money would do: she completely transformed it, making it her own.
It’s truly remarkable to witness Susan’s transformation from the past to the present. She can get ready every morning in the comfort of her old room turned into a dressing room.
Susan showcases her first room on the video tour of our house: a room for pianos. She can’t help but laugh, ‘It’s a start because I don’t even know my scales, so it’s a bit of a laugh.’
The kitchen is undoubtedly the most important room in a house, and Susan’s has much to boast about. It’s small, but it’s also very pretty and modern.
Susan has photos of her siblings alongside pictures of her incredible career, indicating that family is very important to her.
Because Susan spends most of the year touring, she says renovating this room took the longest. From the glimpse of Susan’s house, we can see she loves cute little things everywhere.
To preserve Susan’s privacy, the bedroom is off-limits. Most people don’t want their bedroom shown on camera as it’s where they go to get away from the outside world.
Susan claims that even though her house is already beautiful, she hasn’t finished the planned renovations yet. A spare room hasn’t even been touched.
We know the feeling of not having enough time to complete our projects; however, imagine becoming a world-renowned singer!
Susan stated in an interview with the Sunday Post regarding her decision to buy and renovate her childhood home: ‘My decision to stay in my family home seems to have surprised some people.
Why shouldn’t I? I spent the majority of my life in this house, and I’m not going to move now because it feels like part of my new story. I feel like my mum is still here, and there are so many good memories.'”
