Sarah set up her first property development company aged just 24 along with her brother Diccon and now husband, Graham Swift. Since then, she and Graham have created a number of influential and exciting businesses.
Her passion for architectural heritage was brought to the masses in 2012 when Sarah, Graham and their 4 sons opened the doors to their exquisite home, Rise Hall to allow viewers of Sarah Beeny’s Restoration Nightmare to follow their long-term edit restoration project. The TV show charted the painful yet extremely rewarding journey of Sarah and family turning a stately home wreak into a unique and beautiful wedding and events venue.
Her show, Renovate Don't Relocate, became UKTV's best-performing property title with the first episode reaching an audience of four hundred and seventy-eight thousand. Sarah is well-known for presenting Channel 4’s Double Your House for Half the Money, Help! My House is Falling Down, Restoration Nightmare and Property Ladder. Her most recent series, Sarah Beeny's New Life in the Country, followed the property guru and her family as they quit their lives in London.
With over 20 years experience, Sarah is one of the most familiar and trusted names in the world of property and has written regular columns for national newspapers and magazines, in addition to numerous books.
