The Househunter: Room by Room

19th April 2019

When I was growing up in the dim and distant 1970s (and it was dim as the General Strike of 1973 meant the lights and heating were actually turned off) there was a programme on television (when it worked!) called Why Don’t You Just Switch Off Your Television Set and Go and Do Something Less…

Something different for you this week as we’re going to see a boat. Now, admittedly, many of you won’t be thinking of buying a boat but this is a) a very beautiful one and b) gives us all lessons in small space living so it’s worth having a look round. It’s on the market with…

Right we’re throwing the cheque book out of the window this week – only fantasy lottery money will do today – as we head over to west London to look at this wonderful four bedroom second floor flat which is on the market with Knight Frank for £3.95m. It’s packed with original features – not…

At the time of writing there is sun in the sky and blossom on the very early cherry tree so this week we are going up to a rooftop warehouse conversion with a view of the City. Coming? This light-filled three bedroom penthouse in Fulham, south west London, is on the market with The Modern…

15th February 2019

We’re heading over to west London this week to have a look at an apartment by one of my favourite designers, Suzy Hoodless, and while we’re there I thought we’d poke a virtual nose into a couple of the others which might inspire you in terms of colour and design for your own places. This…

And just like that it was Friday again. Although I say that, it might have been a slow week for you. Ours got off to an expensive start as the 17yo passed his driving test. And the insurance for a 17yo boy is earbleedingly expensive so we’re definitely down to the fantasy savings for this…

The Househunter: Old and New

1st February 2019

While trawling the corners of the internet for a suitable property for this week’s househunter post, I happened across the oldest house in Islington – a Georgian townhouse dating from the 1700s, which I thought would work in relation to the white paint discussion we’ve been having this week. And then it seemed only fair…
