Morning everyone. Or possibly afternoon. Evening even. Whatever time of day you choose to visit I give you cordial greetings. Followed by a little squeal of excitement because look at this. It’s a three bedroom duplex apartment designed by Tom Dixon (I know!) and there are only a few of them available. The Modern House,…

from 23/1/15

As it’s the bank holiday weekend and many of you will be out and about rather than stuck to your screens (and that includes me) I thought we would use today to revisit some of the best rooms for sale so far this year. How often do you find that there’s a great kitchen but…

From the outside this looks like a sweet little cottage doesn’t it. Can you picture the inside? Low ceilings, neutral carpet (to maximise the light) low slung, slightly chintzy sofa and a country-style kitchen with an AGA. Well think again. I love how this house turns all your expectations on their head. Yes there are…

Look it’s an 18 bedroom Grade I listed MOATED castle, who doesn’t want to have a poke about inside? I mean, I get that most of you wouldn’t want to live in it. I would. So you can all come and look at it with me. My blog my rules. Also it’s three million quid, which…

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…

Good morning to you all. Or, perhaps good evening. Spot of lunch? Whatever you’re doing, whatever time it is then Greetings. 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…

OOF+-+HELLO+HOUSE+(3)-1

I know! What a great house. This floated past me on Twitter the other day and I thought it was so fantastic I had to go off and investigate so I could show you the rest of it for today’s Househunter. Sadly it’s not for sale. It’s also in Australia although we won’t hold that…

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…

campden hill road from domus nova

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…
