The Househunter: Room by Room

9th August 2019

Back to west London to have a look at this earbleedingly expensive but very lovely house that was on the market back in March.  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…

The Househunter: A Victorian House Remodelled

2nd August 2019
pink and green via the modern house

This is still one of my favourite houses so far this year and I’m happy to post it again for you to see. It’s partly the combination of pink and green which is a current favourite but also the way it has been updated for modern living. So many city and town dwellers live in…

The Househunter: Room by Room

19th July 2019

So last week’s property had a mixed reception. Love the outside, less keen on the inside. So we’re going a little more traditional this week – more of your classically handsome well-dressed kind of thing. This is the one for me. Show me a floor to ceiling in a Georgian sitting room and I’m all…

The Househunter: Room by Room

12th July 2019

What about this then? Not in sunny California but in a small corner of Buckinghamshire. Gerrards Cross to be exact where, I was once told by someone wanting to move there, things hardly ever come onto the market. And then this does; a £4,000,000 modernist house built in 1936 that is on the market with…

5th July 2019

To Suffolk this week and this very pretty four bedroom (but seven reception), Grade II listed Georgian house which is on the market with Durrants for £580,000, which, after the madness of recent London prices featuring on these pages feels like a lot more for your money. it’s a moot point if you don’t have…

To north London this week and a one bedroom apartment in a converted warehouse with huge windows, brick walls, industrial pillars and wooden floors, this should tick a lot of boxes. It’s on the market with The Modern House for £665,000 and is instructive in both open plan living and a working within a restrained…

Something quite different for you this week as we’re off to Devon to have a look at this four bedroom house near Crediton, which is on the market with Staggs for £775,000. It began life as a barn, no surprises there, although the owners have created something very unbarn-like by adding a zinc roof and…

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.…

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…

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…
