We’re going to the country this week because, well because look at that view. I’m not terribly good at the country myself; after years of living in London and 24 hour access to shops I am now literally incapable of going to a shop and buying bread and milk at the same time. My short…

August Updates: The Househunter

12th August 2016

This is another great house that was marketed earlier this year. Come in and remind yourself of its fabulous kitchen. What about this then. Now I’m pretty sure you will like this and it’s £695,000 via The Modern House. Exactly – quite the bargain, comparatively speaking at least. It’s a five bedroom house, near Stroud,…

The Househunter: Serpentine Summer Galleries

29th July 2016

This week, for something a little different before the August break, I’m going to show you four summer houses. All very different, all very fabulous, all can be yours for £95,000. Which might seem a tad pricey for a posh shed at the bottom of the garden, but, as you can see, these are not…

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…
