It’s Easter weekend, spring is sprung and for many it’s the start of the house buying season. The Househunter has been out and about to see what’s on the market for a little fantasy shopping over the bank holiday. If you really are trying to sell your house then this post on that very subject might be…

This week, one of my favourite houses is up for sale and, as I’m sure that many of you will like it too, we’re going to have a good old browse round. It’s the Welsh home of Mark and Sally Bailey, the couple behind the interiors company Baileys Home and Garden. And if that doesn’t…

Off to a very unusual flatiron building to start this week’s fantasy househunt. Now it’s rare to find this shape building in London and, say the agents, rare to find a flat of this size at this prize. See what you think. It’s in King’s Cross and costs £780,000 via The Modern House. Arranged over…

So where shall we go this week people? Armed with our elastic chequebooks and private helicopters (to beat the school run traffic) we stroll the streets looking for the perfect fantasy pad. First up Belsize Park. This two bedroom apartment (on the market with The Modern House for £1,850,000) is billed as a magnificent entertaining space. It’s…

The Househunter: Homes for Valentine’s Day

Now, as you know, I don’t tend to do themes when it comes to pick of the property but today is Valentine’s Day and all these houses just have a little nod to that so I thought it would be fun to bring them all together. Let me know if you spot all three clues.…

The Househunter: Grand Designs Houses for Sale

Where shall we go today? With a sackful of imaginary notes, a letter from the bank manager and no real time worries about schools and commuting … Well let’s start with this one, which some of you may remember from Grand Designs. I don’t know about you but I’m always amazed to see the blood,…

It’s Friday, it’s 11am and that means it’s time for The Househunter (pause for some wild cheering and clapping). We have some treats for you this week, kicking off with a four bedroom house in Kensington. Recently refurbished, it’s on the market with Domus Nova for £3,500,000. It’s arranged over four floors with a huge…

Continuing last week’s theme of property porn (ie; looking at houses we have no intention of buying – mainly because we can’t possibly afford them) I bring you this. It’s in Linden Gardens, Notting Hill, west London and costs (a mere!) £7,500,000 via Domus Nova. This grand residence is the central building of the East…

The Househunter: You Know You Love It.

Last week I said that the weekly Househunter post was all about the property porn. That we didn’t really care what it cost because we weren’t actually interested in buying anything. It’s just a bit of fantasy shopping. A spot of nosiness and the enjoyment of a good old poke about someone else’s house. Well,…

The Househunter is back for 2014

New Year, new househunting. Now, as many of you will know already, here at Mad we do not concern ourselves with housing bubbles and economics. We don’t care about the practicalities. Nor really even the price. No, we shun such details. We are, unashamedly, all about the property porn. A weekly dose of what’s yer…
