Let’s leave the city and head for the Norfolk countryside to start our house tours this week. This three bedroom, single storey (award-winning) property is on the market for £895,000 via The Modern House. It’s set in an acre of land and was completely in 2010. According to the blurb: “it is one of the…

Friday househunting and this week we’re going monochrome in both London and New York with the former home of Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols and the US home (or should we say one of the US homes) of Rupert Murdoch. Have a wander round these and see what you think. It pains me to…

We’re mixing it up this week by starting out with a modern house in a rural location. Let’s see what you think of that. This was built last year to the vendor’s bespoke design (and yes you do wonder why it’s being sold don’t you) and is in West Wittering, West Sussex. It’s on the…

We’re going househunting as usual this week everyone but as the house selling season kicks off in earnest in Spring I thought it might be helpful to share this feature I wrote for a newspaper a little while back on tips for helping you to sell. Spring and Autumn are traditionally the key times to…

Now I don’t know about you but most of my late night, one too many glasses of wine, mad schemes involve winning the lottery and buying a house in Italy. Usually I content myself with the almost realistic; buying something really cheap like a rustico (old, generally knackered farm building) and gradually converting it to…

Now it turns out that many of you weren’t taken with the country last week but we’re going there again this week because, well, look at this. It’s in Burnham Market, Norfolk and it’s on the market via The Modern House for £695,000. It used to be a 1950s bungalow that was completely remodelled and…

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…

So far so ordinary. Well, inasmuch as a three bedroom house in Hampstead on the market with Chestertons  for £3,750,000 can ever be ordinary. I mean, yes, there’s a lot of glass and yes, somehow, given the size of it you would expect more than three bedrooms. But there are three receptions too. Although one…

We’ll go gently into Friday with a soothing palette of blush, black and natural wood. This three bedroom flat in New Cross, south- east London, is on the market with The Modern House for £675,000. It’s so restful isn’t it, you can’t imagine ever having a row about whose turn it was to empty the dishwasher…
