The Househunter: Room by Room

26th June 2020

Following on from the interview with Matt Gibberd yesterday, it seemed only right to check in and see if he had any new properties for sale given his comment that, since estate agents were allowed to open up again a few weeks ago, it was “busy, busy, busy”. And indeed there is a slew of…

The Househunter: Room by Room

5th June 2020

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…

The Househunter: Room by Room

29th May 2020

Proper lottery money this week as we get to have a look around this house which, apparently, belongs to the illusionist Derren Brown. It’s a 19th century former print house that has been converted into a three bedroom property spread over five floors to include a cinema, artist’s studio and two south-facing terraces. It’s on…

The Househunter Room by Room

6th March 2020
all blue via the modern house

Deep diving into a properly colour saturated space this week and hopefully giving you a chance to see how this all enveloping colour soaking might work in your own homes. This is a two bedroom flat in Tottenham, north London, that is on the market with Brickworks for £500,000. It’s worth having a really good…

The Househunter: Room by Room

14th February 2020

Now look at this. I love it when you can really see how an architect has taken notice of the surroundings. We have a new build not far from us which is on a hill and the houses above have gone from looking at a lovely view down the hill to a grey roof and…

The Househunter: Room by Room

7th February 2020

Right then let’s see what you make of this. Following on from yesterday’s eco house tour in a 1960s property, this was built in 1979 and is a house that would have been screamingly unfashionable until very recently. But times have changed. As Oliver pointed out, these houses often have big square rooms and large…

The Househunter: Room by Room

31st January 2020

There are now so many architect designed apartments at the newly redeveloped BBC Television Centre that it’s a wonder there are any left undone for the rest of us to have a go at. Designers include Suzy Hoodless, Bella Freud, Laura Fulmine and now The Waldo Works. This, like the others, is on the market…

The Househunter: Room by Room

24th January 2020

I’m sucker for a black clad building and while I sense this one might divide opinion it’s so different from what, I assume, most of us live in that I wanted to take a tour to see what we all think. It’s in Broadstairs, Kent, and is on the market with The Modern House for…

The Househunter : Town and Country

22nd November 2019

Two for you this week as I couldn’t decide which one to include so thought we could go town and country. Also, while both are very different the colour palettes are similar – basically they look like someone lay down in the middle of the Farrow & Ball factory and rolled around for a while.…
