Property flirt: party pad

1 Mar 2017

Shall we celebrate the start of spring and all this glorious spring weather (??!!!) with a goosey gander around a gorgeous family home just a hop skip and a flippety flop across the Kent border in pretty Crockham Hill. Yes, I think so too.

Usual rules apply – look at the pics and description, guess the price, put your answer in the comments box below and the winner gets a romantic break with Tom Hiddleston in the Bahamas. Er, ok, maybe not. But you’ll have the glory of being right!

Property Flirt: I think I’m in love…

21 Feb 2017

There are properties that I like to flirt with. Just the usual flirting: a little blushing of cheek, fluttering of eyelash and possibly flashing of leg. It’s nothing serious, just a little crush. My heart’s not in it for the long haul.

And then there are the properties I go doolally over. These are the ones I would introduce to my parents. To my grandma. These properties are the keepers. They have everything on my tick list, and more.

Folks. I’ve found my keeper.

Well hello there sexy! Uh, I meant the house, but ok, you too. Well, this is the most expensive Property Flirt I’ve written about so far, giving a little ‘Hey Big Spender’ sequins and shimmy to proceedings. We’re talking six double bedrooms, five bathrooms (yes, really), five reception rooms, a gym, tennis court, swimming pool, stables, a separate guest cottage and roughly 12 acres of grounds. Want to take a sneaky peek? Of course you do.

Property Flirt: she’s a stunner

12 Dec 2016

Are you ready to get Flirty Gertie? Time for one of my favourite bits of the blogaroo! Because, yes I’m nosey and yes I have property envy and yessity yes YES I want to pretend for a moment that I’m going to be living in this house one day.

If you haven’t played Property Flirt before, tis easy. Look at the pics, read the clues, get a feel for the area and then see if you can guess the price. Those who come within £10k of the asking price get an ‘I HEART SURREY’ key ring and my last Rolo. Subject to availability, of course. Oh, the Rolo’s just gone.

Property flirt

Well paint me green and call me a cucumber. Ain’t this the prettiest country house you ever did see? I’ve had a sneaky peek through the keyhole, and I can confirm that she’s just as good on the inside. Am I green? Oh yes I am.

You know the drill ladies and gents. I’ll take you on a tour, and drop a few little hints along the way. You consult with Mr Smith over the back fence and come up with a figure, and the winner gets a romantic night out with Kevin McCloud. Or Mr Smith. You choose.

Are you ready to rumble? Let’s do this thang…
