Last week was houses, this week two bedroom flats. The ideal first purchase – if you can get it. But even if you can’t, or you rent one, there are always ideas that you can borrow from other people and this converted warehouse in east London, which is on the market for $650,000 with The…

Two corkers for you this week. Well I think they are in that they sum up the Mad House philosophy rather well. Both are on with The Modern House, neither of them are modern. That is they are Victorian houses with modern additions and have been decorated in a mix of old and new, which…

Mixing up town and country this week. And light and dark come to that. Bit like the weather over the last few days – it’s hot, it’s cold, it’s wet, it’s dry. This summer doesn’t quite know what it’s about but never mind the weather, come inside this first house I’ve got for you. It…

We left the capital  last week for a countryside break and while it’s still hot in the city (name that tune and show your age) I couldn’t resist this two bedroom apartment in a listed building in Streatham, south London. It’s on the market for £375,000 via The Modern House. There are two bedrooms and…

If this is truly our moment of summer then let’s head out of the cities and make a run for the countryside. This five bedroom house overlooking Totnes, in Devon, seems like a good place to start. It’s on the market with The Modern House for £849,000 and while it backs onto open countryside it…

Forget what I have said about any other house ever. This is the one. It’s in north London. It has three bedrooms ( I can work with that) and a garden and it’s on the market with The Modern House for – slight snag here – £3.5m. Cue background music screeching to a halt. Oh…

It’s a post of two halves this week. First up the traditional house in the country followed by the ultra modern new build, which, unusually for this slot, isn’t furnished but I wanted to talk about a couple of the design elements so I thought it was worth looking at. So, first up is this…

Given the glorious weather and the fact that this week is summer (expect normal rain service to have resumed by the time you read this) I have been hunting for properties with pools or great views this week and first up is this two bedroom Modernist flat in Hampstead which is on for £1.100,000 via…

Starting off in Wimbledon this week with this three bedroom duplex apartment which is on the market with The Modern House for £1,175,000. It’s mainly about the kitchen with its soft greeny grey cupboards, crittall windows and wooden island. It’s a gorgeous space that has the sitting room at one end – you can just…

It’s Friday so it must be time to poke around other people’s houses and see if we want to spend that fantasy lottery win or just keep our real money and use it to buy the inspiration seen on these pages. This week they’re both former industrial buildings which have been converted and are available…
