Season 60, Episode 5

Old or New in England's Surrey County

For history buff Derek Smith, his job transfer from Houston, Texas to England's Surrey County is a dream come true. With its pastoral setting mixed with buildings standing from the time of the Tudors, Surrey County has all the old British charm that he could ever ask for. His wife Libby, however, is not interested in living in the past. She is giving up her job at NASA and is looking to her future by enrolling in design school. Libby gravitates to a modern aesthetic, not only in her design style but also in the type of home she wants to live. Finding middle ground on character is already going to be a challenge, but with rental homes in Surrey County here and gone in the blink of an eye, time is not on their side to endlessly debate old or new. Watch as Derek and Libby try to come to a decision before all their choices are history when House Hunters International takes a trip through the past, present, and future of England's Surrey County.
