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: Room by Room

25th May 2018

It’s just as well you don’t date houses – I’d be a proper Casanova (or whatever the female equivalent is). I’d honestly be falling in love and romancing a new one every week. I was all over that gorgeous Cornish house last Friday and now I’d dump it without a backward glance for this two…

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…

The Househunter: Room by Room

4th May 2018

Anyone who has ever approached London from the west will surely have noticed the remarkable Art Deco Hoover building on the A40. And perhaps felt a little bit sad that it was mostly home to a giant supermarket. But guess what – it has been converted into flats and while the supermarket will remain that…

Househunter: Room by Room

20th April 2018

Sometimes we look at houses that we can imagine actually buying – at least with a bit of lottery money or the selling of a single kidney. And sometimes we look at houses that we know we won’t buy but which are important in the architectural story of the country. Today is one such house.…

The Househunter: Room by Room

13th April 2018

Another week has flown by and it’s time to go and poke around some other people’s houses again. Let’s start with this  raised ground floor flat in West London which is on with Savills for £900,000 and has two bedrooms,  both of which are decent sizes which is unusual as you often find one large…

Welcome back to the Househunter. The housebuying season is officially open – not that it ever goes away but this time of year tends to be the start of the busy period. Last year television presenter Amanda Lamb kindly guest-blogged a post on how to sell your house – sound advice which is always relevant,…
