The Househunter: Room by Room

17th April 2020

I do love it on Grand Designs when people find odd little plots of land and turn them into brilliant and imaginative houses and this week I have found one such property. A three bedroom house arranged over two floors with split levels, created from a former mechanic’s garage in east London, this is on…

The Househunter Room by Room

13th March 2020

So here we are on Friday 13th and this house seemed apt. Not least for the picture over the fireplace but also just look at the setting. Feels like the perfect place to hide away and still be able to go outside for fresh air. Built in 1980 it’s nestled in  oak woodlands in Surrey…

The Househunter: Room by Room – Open Plan

28th February 2020

Off to the country as the sun is shining and the sky is blue ( as I write that sentence at least. Could be a different story by the time I’ve finished the next one.. and it was as it then started snowing as I was editing!). Anyway, this is a converted stable block in…

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…

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…

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…

GeioSome of my favourite houses are the ones that don’t actually look decorated. Or should that be designed. The ones where it looks like the owners just unpacked their stuff, poured a glass of wine and sat down. This Georgian townhouse is one of those. Although, it has to be said, the words “Georgian” and…

The Househunter: Room by Room

8th November 2019

So last week we looked at a four bedroom house in the wing of a country manor and this week we’ve got the whole manor. It’s actually a four bedroom former rectory that’s two or three times as big as last week’s but that can bring its own issues I think. This is on the…
