We’re going big and we’re going bold this week. Wolf Hall may have finished but my delusions of grandeur remain, so we’re heading off to Gloucestershire first. It’s in Alderley, Gloucestershire with Knight Frank and it’s POA sadly, but with ten bedrooms, seven reception rooms, outbuildings, secondary accommodation and land, I think we can assume…

321 Portobello Road-39 small file

Hard to know what’s more exciting about this house – the black architraves, the concrete or (small intake of breath) the copper radiators. Yes COPPER. This terraced building in Notting Hill has been completely redone by Cubic Studios who have created this rather industrial space but with soft touches coming from the wood floors, natural light…

Time for our weekly installment of house envy as we go poking round the properties that are for sale and imagine how we would live given the requisite millions and time-travelling commute possibilities. First…

mark and sally bailey's house is full of rustic charm

Rememer this? One of my favourite houses went up for sale this year 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…

Returning to look at some of the best houses we saw this year, the Househunter first went to this 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 open plan living, kitchen, and dining room on the ground floor that…

Hello Househunters and how are you all this week? Flexing your fantasy credit cards or perhaps just flexing the fantasy mortage lender. With the news this week that the over 40s are being turned down for mortgages, this page is become ever more a dreamspace and not just because of the house prices. Still let’s…

Morning people! So it’s Fri-will-I-win-the-lottery-this-week-no-never-mind-I-can-still-dream-day. Otherwise known as; if I had a few million quid would buy one of these? So first up we’re off to east London to poke around this rather fabulous warehouse conversion. This two bedroom (yes just two. Yes I know that’s ridiculous. It’s London) apartment is on the market for…

Sometimes, when reality is all a little too much, or, more honestly, when my delusions of grandeur spiral totally out of control, I browse around the more wildly improbable reaches of the estate agents. The end where, in an ideal world, no single property should ever be. But, just sometimes, it’s fun to look. Remember,…

After another busy week toiling away at the coal face of journalism and interior design it’s time to float about some houses sprinkling Monopoly money hither and yon and wherever it may please us. Something like that anyway. First up, we’re off to west London. To this rather fabulous four bedroom freehold house in a…

So The Househunter took a summer break as that’s traditionally when the market goes quiet but it’s back. And do, please, let me know, is this a regular post that you like? Personally I like nothing more than poking round people’s houses but it would be great to get some feedback from you and see…
