Not so long ago I made an admittance on here that I am a total Rightmove addict. Well, I thought, why not share some of my favourite finds with you every month instead of keeping them to myself ? If you fall in love with them too you can always blame me, right ?
So to start off with I am going to take you on a mini tour this March with an array of what I feel are aesthetically stunning, dream homes.
At the top here is a property that caught my eye as I’ve always had a bit of a thing for houseboats, but this takes things to another level. Designed by 31/44 Architects, it’s such a tranquil space, moored St. Katharine Docks right in the centre of London currently – that’s what I love about them though. You could really live anywhere you wish within reason.
The boat has one bedroom and is brand new with bespoke handmade flooring throughout made from Douglas Fir Charcoal Grey Valchromat and Tulipwood which is a brilliant wood because it’s strong and doesn’t split like some others.
It has a concealed television, beautiful walls sconces, bathroom fittings are made from Corian and the kitchen units are created from recycled materials by ‘ Smile Plastics ‘. There is hidden storage under the stairs and seating.
Let’s just talk about the colour palette for a minute ? It’s very calming so blends with it’s surroundings. The natural materials are just lovely with the balancing dusky pink. I want to move in myself. It’s currently up for sale at £290,000 with Aucoot.
This one is not so far from me. A rural find in Bressingham, Norfolk. Previously a steel framed agricultural barn. Look at the views …
Sitting on a plot of land that previously formed part of the land of Old Boyland Hall which dates back to the 13th Century no less. Lots of wildlife on your doorstep, a private bridge over a moat to your garden and much greenery but let’s look at the interior.
A four bedroom property spaced over 2 floors, It seems to have a very spacious feel with it’s large picture windows and double height ceilings allowing in generous proportions of light.
Very envious indeed of the Carrara marble worktops which suit the homes contemporary theme. It’s a very simple look and I love it.
Lots of room to manoeuvre in here. I really do like the white theme throughout. I think this twinned with the picture windows, frames the countryside all around you. Allowing pops of colour here and there inside to add extra character. I would be tempted to not make too many changes colour wise but if you did choose to, you have a great canvas to start with.
It’s not always possible to completely recommend a location but on this occasion – this part of the world is pretty wonderful.
Currently on the market at £799,000 with The Modern House.
Last but most definitely not least is a home that really set my heart a fluttering. Not only do you have an exquisite exterior building which is on Queen’s Parade, but the current owners have created quite a feast for the eyes on the inside with the property occupying the second and third floor.
The home has remained sympathetic to it’s Georgian heritage but with a nod to modern day. The house was originally designed in around 1770 by John Wood the Younger.
Really appreciating the classic and gentle colour combinations used in every room with the paint and furniture textiles combined.
The light is able to stream right in and highlight the structures of the room and accentuates the high vaulted ceiling.
There seems to be painted wooden flooring throughout and a very cute and cosy room here. When you have a bedroom with eaves (sloping ceilings ) they can be excellent as kids rooms where you can utilise the shapes using storage boxes etc. With the window capturing the city just outside, it’s a win win, really.
Currently on at £770,000 Freehold with The Modern House. There are some more images on their website. Really worth a look.
All very Pinterest worthy places don’t you think ? Will be adding some to my own boards imminently. What are your thoughts on these homes ? Leave me a comment as ever below…
