Right pack your bags, we’re going to Scotland. We may be staying. No, not because of you know what (begins with B dear, do keep up) although I know many people who spent Friday 24 June on Rightmove looking at the price of Scottish property, but because of this house. It’s amazing and it’s got…

glass extension on old house

This week we’re starting off with a house that is all about the outside. Gorgeous gardens and an amazing extension. Sometimes it’s very hard to find houses with the sorts of interiors we like here in The Mad House and, given that we’ve been looking at things for inside all week, I wanted to show…

We’ve come over all architectural this week. Usually I concentrate more on the interiors as that is tends to be what sells a house (well that and location obvs) but this week I wanted to show you this house in Surrey which, I’m pretty certain none of you are going to be buying. Although if…

open plan kitchen via the modern house

Well, well, well, I don’t know about you but I seem to have snapped right out of the five stages of grief (somewhere around no 4) in favour of slightly maniacal laughter. If ever the feeling that we just have to carry on (not buying the calm bit, sorry) then the last few days have…

living room with glass wall

I am writing this the day before the morning after and I have literally no idea what the morning after is going to bring. It is a strange feeling and one I can’t remember having had before. Perhaps it was like the day before the A Level results were due. When you were pretty sure…

bedroom with glass walls

Gooooooood Moooooorning Househuuuuunnters! What do you fancy today? Let’s start with something huge, screamingly modern and, ahem, definitely in the lottery-winning category. This modern house, clad in stainless steel, might feature the best bedroom ever. But the rest of it’s pretty nice too as you will see if you come in with me. It’s on…

A treat for you today: a tour round a proper Bond villain house that is on the market for $8m but that’s probably small change to yer average villain these days. Some of you will recognise it as the house of Willard Whyte in the 1971 movie Diamonds are Forever. And no I know you…

Friday again so wrap up warm (it is June after all) and let’s start our tour of the pick of this week’s property market. I do love these tall London houses, there’s something so pleasing about the proportions although most of them are quite a lot thinner than this one which is on the market…

turquoise sofa

Well this is a trip down memory lane. This is a two bedroom flat in the building where I trained to be a journalist (many, many, and then some, moons ago). It’s in St Leonard’s on Sea, which is right next door to Hastings for those who don’t know their geography round there, and it’s…

10 Beautiful Rooms

Trying to start the week feeling serene and calm and these first few rooms fit the bill perfectly. Natural floorboards, rustic wood and white walls. Not for nothing is there an instagram hashtag called #whiteworks. Because it does. As much as I like dark walls – and they do photograph particularly well – you can’t…
