She added: 'Redoing a house that has been empty for six years and lived in by the same little old lady for near on 74 years, you can imagine what it was like.'
However after six years of it laying empty and with 'nothing' done to the home, it came back onto the market.
When Betty passed away six years ago on the day Beth's daughter was born Beth, who was 19 at the time, was not in a financial position to buy the property with her fiance and it was snapped up by a developer.
Beth Greenway, 26, from Gloucester, had grown up and lived in the house opposite 'Betty's house' for 26 years with her parents, and had always admired the home.
A mother who always wanted to live in the house across from her parents where the same elderly woman lived for 74 years has revealed how she finally bought and transformed the property into a modern family home.

In recent weeks, we’ve gasped at Demi Moore’s carpeted bathroom – complete with rock wall cladding – after she posted an innocent selfie on Instagram.
With the introduction of Instagram, we’re able to set foot inside the intimate, personal spaces of famous people – and promptly judge their interiors like we’re Shaynna Blaze criticising some bogan couple’s bathroom revamp on The Block.
What is it about an ugly celebrity home that shocks and satisfies us so much?
We know ridiculously wealthy people will always deck out their homes with gaudy and grotesque opulence – just lots of gold paint, chrome and plaster mouldings to make the place look like it’s an ancient Roman temple even though it was built in California in 2003.
What we really love though is ugly homes that belong to celebrities who have otherwise exceptional taste.
If you’re looking for a bookshelf that can handle lots of big, heavy books (which can weigh up to 50 pounds per running foot), opt for a model with solid wood shelves.
Also consider that if you own a lot of books, your collection is probably quite heavy, which means a flimsier case won't do; make sure you choose a bookcase that is designed to carry at least 20 pounds per running foot — or even more if you own a lot of hefty textbooks or hardcovers.
With a capacity of 120 pounds per shelf, this HSH Bookcase is cut out for the heavy lifting that books require.
I researched many ladder bookshelves and was surprised that most of the ones I came across simply weren't cut out for the weight of books — but this 6-shelf bookcase is certainly an exception!
Positive Amazon review: “I needed a bookcase for my office/guest room that could hold a LOT of books without taking up a lot of space.
'By the time I finished my master's degree Steven and I were already saving for the house and we saved the $7,500 deposit needed to secure our mortgage within a year.
Completing her bachelors in record time just before her 19th birthday, she then also completed her MBA in Human Resources Management and became the youngest student to get an MBA at Lynn University, Florida, completing it at 19-years-old, a few days before turning 20.
So by the time she started her bachelor's degree in psychology she could skip the first half of the course.
Pakeezah Zubairi, 21, from Florida, finished high school with 18 months worth of university credits by taking after hours classes and tests.
A woman has achieved more in two years than most have in a lifetime, completing a bachelor's degree, master's degree and owning a home by the time she was 20 - and is now starting a PhD aged 21.

You know if you build in the water that a kind of harbour block will appear, with nice red trim and fences for safety around the top, and you know if you build on top of it, a building will appear.
There's no discernible aim to the game other than to make your town look nice.
Every time a building dynamically adapts to what you're doing, there's a delightful tinkling of tiles and a popping noise, and an animation that reminds me of a blob assimilating another blob like slimes do in fantasy games.
I can't possibly put that building right up to the edge of the harbour because how will the people who live there get in?
Maybe it's because I live in a coastal town in real life, I don't know, but I do know that if I don't provide my people with some kind of buttress against the wind then it's going to whip through that town mercilessly.
Each time a designer starts work on a new design, there is always a big problem: a lack of high-quality materials, such as fonts, icons, images etc.
