Life in a cave

Posted on Sun, 26 Jun 2022 by KiM

In a town in France called Cornillé-les-Caves there is conveniently a home for sale that is comprised of two townhouses and a troglodyte (cave) house. It could use some new paint colours and an interior design overhaul but WHOA the potential this place has. It’s incredible! And can be yours for €861 000 via Karacterre.

Dunford House

Posted on Sun, 10 Apr 2022 by KiM

Dunford House is located in West Sussux and was built around 1852. It is a Victorian villa-style Grade II Listed building with additional outbuildings set in approximately 53.84 acres. The main house comprises 19 en-suite bedrooms, extending to approximately 11,300 sq ft, with a modern single level extension providing a further 5 en-suite bedrooms within 1,165 sq ft. The property also contains a 3 bedroom bungalow, extending to approximately 1,500 sq ft, previously used as a manager’s house. If that wasn’t enough, there is also a coach house provides a further six bedrooms, extending to approximately 4,000 sq ft. WHOA that’s a lot of bedrooms! I found this glorious home through Shoot Factory as a location home but I also found it looking very empty and listed on Savills, for £3,000,000.

Dave is a longtime reader of our blog and recently wrote us to share his absolutely incredible Montréal loft with us, that he had torn down to the studs and completely renovated in 2018. Unfortunately he now has to sell it but wanted to share it with us before he leaves. A bit of info about it: 15ft ceilings, exposed brisk, 2 gas fireplaces, 2+1 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, living space of 1760 sq ft and a mezzanine of 900 sq ft, private roof top terrace 21′ x 34′.

The Old Manor

Posted on Tue, 1 Feb 2022 by KiM

What a dream! Houses like this make me want to cry they’re so beautiful. This magnificent seven-bedroom, Grade I-listed house occupies an excellent position in the sought-after village of Croscombe, at the edge of the Mendip Hills in Somerset. The interior is replete with exquisite architectural features, ecclesiastical motifs and Palladian cornicing. Internal living space extends to over 4,500 sq ft across three storeys, with further opportunity to convert the adjoining coach house and attic rooms. The Old Manor is thought to have been built in 1460, originally as a rectorial manor house. The house is characterised by roughcast, limewashed walls and a magnificent Tudor chimney pot. For sale via Inigo.

Pale, rustic earthy and as cozy as can be. I love this Winshester Avenue, West London home currently for sale by Domus Nova. At the end of a row of red-brick homes and gently curving turrets, this grand five-bedroom property is a modern take on period proportions. Bright light, spacious rooms and four floors of considered design. Past the driveway, enter on the ground floor, where a double reception room is zoned into a sitting room with an open fire, and another sitting room, lined with shelves and bookcases – currently used as a study space. Downstairs, a second lounge – its lower-level position and raised projector create the perfect home cinema setting. In the kitchen, solid wood floors give way to flagstone floors, while rustic wood and rattan are the perfect foil for marble worktops. Tucked away in the corner, a family snug. Steel-framed doors lead on to the walled terrace and garden beyond – note the al-fresco fireplace. At the end of the beautifully landscaped garden, a generous studio (currently used as a home gym) has potential to be reimagined as guest quarters – a rare feature for a city-centre postcode. Five lofty bedrooms are spread across the upper levels. Canted bay windows keep the master bedroom naturally bright. It’s served by a zellige-tiled en suite bathroom. Four further bedrooms are serene retreats; one en suite room is tucked into the eaves and another has access to a secluded decked roof terrace.
