Renovate or new build in the garden?

    So to completely renovate and extend my house would cost something close to 500k. The house sits in the center of a lovely mature 1 acre site. Alternatively, I could just build a completely new house in the garden, so now I have a brand new house but what am I to do with the original one. Splitting up the site would leave me on maybe 1/3 of an acre in my new house. I guess my point is that renovation costs are just nuts but I don't see what choice I have if I want to stay where I am on the plot I have. Any thoughts?
