10th August 2018

This was the most popular househunter post in February and it’s a gorgeous house so I thought you might like another look around.  It’s been a busy week so I thought we’d start off here with this lovely London house that has been painted in a palette of soft muted colours. Fancy coming round? It’s…

The Househunter: Room by Room

3rd August 2018

This cottage in Cornwall proved one of the most popular househunter posts so far this year along with a modern classic designed by Alison and Peter Smithson, who have been described as the among the most influential architects of the 20th century. Both houses are completely different but there are ideas and inspiration to be…

The Househunter: Room by Room

27th July 2018

Ok I’m done. I’m officially over this weather. Not while I have to work and function and think about anything more taxing than where the next drink/meal/book is coming from. So this house has been chosen purely because when I saw the first picture on the site (which is the second one here) I immediately…

The Househunter: Room by Room

6th July 2018

And it’s Friday……I appreciate that not everyone reading this is living through a heatwave but there’s one in London and while I’m not complaining (too much) it’s hard to work in the city in what is essentially seaside weather. So for that reason the first house is a huge empty warehouse conversion that feels light…

The Househunter: Room by Room

A return to normal this week with two properties – one town and one country and the country one belonging to Will Young at that. Mind you, his, in the middle of Bodmin Moor, is the cheap one. So let’s start in London with this rather wonderful five bedroom house near Wandsworth Common. It’s on…

The Househunter: Room by Room

8th June 2018

I thought I’d found the perfect houses last week but this week I think I prefer these. First up is this converted shoe factory on Shoreditch High Street which has been converted into a three bedroom live work space by the husband and wife team Chan and Eayrs. This is on with The Modern House…

The Househunter: Room by Room

1st June 2018

And it’s Friday again. That rolled round fast didn’t it? Must be something to do with the four day weeks that May is so full of. Not that it makes much difference to a freelance or a journalist (we always had to work bank holidays when I worked for newspapers) but there’s something in the…

The Househunter: Waterside Properties

18th May 2018

I don’t know if it’s the thought of summer coming (please make it soon) and the inevitable holiday dreams that start to filter through at this time of year but this two bedroom cottage really has got me rummaging down the back of the sofa for, erm, £750,000…. It’s on the market with Stags, and…

Happy Friday – that was a lovely short week wasn’t it. This time, in an almost unheard of move, we are going to take a trip round three houses that are all under a million pounds. In London. Coming? This is the first – a  former Victorian school building which is on for £650,000 via…
