The Househunter: Room by Room

14th June 2019

Let’s not even start with the weather… actually how do we not? Was watching Killing Eve last night (anyone else?) and it’s not a spoiler to say that when she turns up in England – Basildon to be precise – it was clear that that was filmed last summer as the grass was completely brown.…

The Househunter: Room by Room

7th June 2019

To the country as the sun is shining (at the time of writing) and there is an alarm going off outside my city garden and I wish I was lying on my back under a tree looking up at the clouds scudding by. In silence. Instead I’m on the sofa typing and occasionally shouting/pleading/cajoling with…

I love this house and I want it but I will show it to you in the spirit of generosity. And also because I can’t quite lay my hands on £1.795m at this moment in time…. It’s in north London and it’s on he market with The Modern House. There are four bedrooms but the…

A classic Cotswold stone house from the outside this honey-coloured grade II listed old forge is all white washed contemporary living on the inside which is the perfect foil for the low ceilings and heavy beams. It’s on the market with Strutt & Parker for £1,750,000 and consists of a five bedroom house with a…

Well I’m not going to say that summer’s here (that would clearly be foolish) but I am going to say that since the sun has been shining this week and I went to beautiful Bath for a meeting, that this house, inspired by the Case Study houses of LA felt like one I wanted to…

The Househunter: Room by Room

10th May 2019

This is so different from the house I live in that I wonder if I am attracted to it purely for that reason. Or perhaps that during the location shoot I went up and down to the loft so many times during the week that I quite fancy the idea of a house with no…

3rd May 2019

Happy Friday. Fancy a coming for a quick tour of this rather lovely four bedroom terrace house in north London which is so typical of the Victorian terraces in this city and is on the market for £800,000 via Brickworks. It has such a clear, and lovely, red thread that I thought it would be…

The Househunter: Room by Room

26th April 2019

Right then after last week’s million pound extravaganza we are going to the other end of the scale this week. Well, relatively speaking anyway. This is a narrow three bedroom townhouse, a short walk from Brighton beach, which is on the market with The Modern House for £875,000. Located in a former art gallery, there…

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…

The Househunter: The Boat

5th April 2019

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…
