Us Brits are a nosey nation: we love taking a peek inside other people’s homes and nowadays, there are so many property programs for us to get our fix. I decided it would be nice to start a new series which will feature my property favourites at the end of every month to showcase the best properties in the UK. It is likely to be a combination of rural and city each time, but we will see what takes my fancy!
Manchester City Centre – £600,000
This triplex apartment in the heart of the Northern Quarter of Manchester city centre really caught my eye. As you would expect it has got excellent transport links, a primary school rated ‘outstanding’ within half a mile, and is a stone’s throw from the local shops, restaurants and bars. The building itself dates back to 1758 and the apartment is split over three floors, has 3 bedrooms and 2 reception rooms. As you can tell from the photos the property looks to be in great condition and I love the idea of having a blend of contemporary living whilst retaining features such as the exposed brickwork which is a theme that runs throughout. Externally it boasts a rooftop terrace. It certainly looks like it would be great for a professional couple wanting to enjoy city living but with a sophisticated touch. Unsurprisingly, the property has already been snapped up by a lucky buyer!

Chadlington, Chipping Norton – £625,000
This is a simply stunning house which quite frankly I wish I was buying. Whoever the purchaser is, they are one lucky person – very jealous! The house is situated in Chadlington, near Chipping Norton, which is one the finest Cotswolds villages. Local amenities include a butcher, pub and a deli. The house also benefits from being very near to Oxford and also has good links to London. The property is beautifully furnished, completely ready to walk into, and has 4 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms and vistas of the stunning surrounding countryside. As I’m sure you have already seen the property oozes period charm which for me is what it is all about – complete property porn!
