Shall we head to Brighton first? At the time of writing the sun is shining high low in a cloudless almost clear sky and I feel like a bit of seaside is in order. This five bedroom house is on the market with Fine and Country and it is rather splendid isn’t it? Or perhaps it’s…

Well now this is an interesting one to start off with; it’s the house my father grew up in. My mother visited him there many times while they were – shall we say “dating” – it was the sixties – and then it was sold shortly afterwards. It was eventually bought by Sir Bernard Lovell,…

Good Morning househunters. Or Nosey Parkers depending on which camp you fall into….I’m definitely in the latter these days and no shame in that I say. So then, where shall we go today? Let’s begin with a trip over to west London to see this two bedroom garden maisonette which is on the market for…

I LOVE this house. With only one small exception. Actually two, but apart from that I think it’s amazing and can’t understand why the owners are selling it. Although it belongs to one of the founders of Darkroom, one of London’s most fabulous design shops, so it’s possible that the next house will be even…

So it’s 2016 and time for our first nose around someone else’s house this year. The housing market can be little quiet in January but I’ve still managed to dredge up a couple of beauties that you will enjoy wandering round and peering into their virtual closets. This one’s a beauty from The Modern House.…

Friday morning so we’re off to Somerset to look around this rather fabulous eight bedroom house in Somerset. It’s on the market with Savills for £2,200,000 and this might be a serious contender for the lottery winnings which, as it turns out, didn’t quite come off as planned at all last week so that clearly means we’re…

It’s Friday so it must be time for a little nose around someone else’s house for a change. This week we’re starting off in The Old Courthouse, in west London. It’s on the market for £2,495,000 with Domus Nova should you be planning to win the lottery this weekend. I know I am. This two bedroom…

Ashworth House is in Westonbirt, in the Cotswolds and this is on the market for £2,500,000 with Savills (via Rightmove). It has four bedrooms and three receptions (drawing, sitting dining) as well as three bathrooms. And that seems to me to be well-proportioned. I know, from my own house-hunting experience and from talking to estate agents,…

Why do the good houses have to be so expensive? The housing market in London is clearly completely mental and this is not the place to get into the why (oh whys) and wherefores of that, but while I never miss an opportunity to poke my nose around someone else’s house and while we can’t…

So first of all a huge thank you to everyone who voted to get the Mad House onto the shortlist for the Amara Blog awards. We won! It was, as I believe the saying goes a “glittering star-studded ceremony” at The Ham Yard Hotel, in London, and I drank far too much champagne and didn’t…
