Right it’s official, the lockdown is easing and we’re officially allowed to spend the night away from home (in our bubbles) so I thought we should take a trip to the seaside, in our own virtual bubble, to look at this huge Georgian townhouse in fashionable Margate. Who’s coming? It’s big enough for us to…

This week we are off to Bristol, to a rather fabulous apartment with 180 degree views across the harbour, three bedrooms above and parking all situated under an Ogee dome (yes I looked it up as well it’s sort of S-shape – see below). I’m sold already… It’s on the market with Knight Frank for…

The Househunter: Warehouse Living

Well I couldn’t resist this week’s property as it’s called Warehouse K, or as I have renamed it Warehouse Chair, for reasons which will become clear. It’s on the market with The Modern House, which is about to launch a spin-off site for period properties called Inigo, which I imagine will have us all in…

Now this is lovely I hope you will agree. It’s a four bedroom maisonette located minutes from the OId Street roundabout in London (make it very central for those who aren’t familiar with the city) and is on the market with Aucoot for £740,000. Spread over the second and third floors of a low-rise modernist…

When we bought our first flat (a two bedroom garden apartment back in 1998 – I won’t tell you what it cost or younger readers will cry) we used to fantasise about buying the flats on the two floors above and creating one huge house. Then the woman on the top floor put hers on…

A lovely example of small space living for you this week – after last week’s eclectic extravaganza. This is a converted coach-house built around 1800 which is now a two bedroom two floor property on the market for £700,000 with The Modern House. Let’s go in through the round window first shall we (anyone around…

I’ve had to hunt about a bit this week to find you something you might think it was worth getting your virtual coat on for (not to mention shoes – what even are they and how do they feel?) but this is a very pretty house in north west London that is on the market…

The Househunter: Room by Room – the perfect one bedroom flat

8th May 2020

I adore this little flat. From the way it has been decorated to the pretty pink walls outside. It’s a one bedroom flat in Bristol and it’s on the market for £350,000 with The Modern House. If the 19yo were studying in Bristol instead of Manchester…. But he isn’t –  not that anyone is studying…

The Househunter: Room by Room – A Modernist House

24th April 2020
AD / May contain affiliate links

I do love these modernist houses and while I have always lived in Victorian properties (pretty much all of them now I come to think of it – bar my Grandmother’s 14th century timber frame cottage) I really could be tempted by something like this although I’d probably need to knock the inside around a…
