The Househunter Room by Room

room with a view via the modern house

Three very diverse properties for you this week so we’ll see what you make of this lot. First up is this modernist house in Merseyside which is on the market for £2,750,000 via Savills. It’s in a conservation area about 12 miles from Liverpool and no, I’m not sure how they got permission to build…

grey panelling and vintage wood

Do you ever look at clothes in magazines or in shops and fall completely in love with them but know they won’t suit you? When I was younger I would have bought them anyway believing that loving something was enough but age (and a little bit of wisdom) have caught up with me and now…

metallic wall in sitting room

Right this one’ll wake you up. It’s a tale of two halves this week – one a completely over the top luxurious, glamorous Dolce and Gabbana of a house and one an oasis of minimal Armani calm. Which one will you go for? We’re going in at the deep end with this two bedroom, three…

Well you know what they say – it’s all about location and this one wins on for that. It’s in Chester and it’s on the market with Savills for £1,650,000, which is about a tenth of what it would cost in London. Which doesn’t make it right but does make it affordable in a sort…

The Househunter: Room by Room

We’re going for a nose round a celebrity home this week. We don’t do this very often because they are usually, it seems to me, so over the top in some way that while it might be nice to have a poke about you wouldn’t really want to live in any of them as there’s…

The Househunter: Room by Room

whitewashed brick walls and vintage furniture

Well last week’s property went down like a lead balloon didn’t it? Hopefully you’ll like this week’s choices better. This is De Montalt Mill, in Bath, which is a four bedroom maisonette about ten miles from Bristol and is on the market for offers in excess of £850,000. You get the ground and lower ground…

The Househunter Room by Room

shades of neutral via the modern house

It’s a good job we’re more about the room analysis than the househunting as this beauty is retailing for a lipsmacking £2.4m via The Modern House but it’s lovely space and definitely worth a poke about. And anyway, what am I saying, all you subscribers might be squillionaires for I know. In which case, do invite…

pale grey panelled walls via savills

Back to normal this week with a room by room analysis of this rather gorgeous house in Painswick in the Cotswolds which is on the market for £1.5m via Savills. It has six/seven bedrooms, four receptions, is Grade II* listed and there’s room to make extra accommodation as well. Mind you, I will say that…

Is this the Perfect Living Room?

27th January 2017
DFS - My Happy Place18999

We’re doing something a little different this week. This, contrary to what you have been asking for,  is the very antithesis of a real room. But there is a reason for my going off piste – this is apparently the perfect living room. Shall I just pause while you scroll up and down and tut a…
