Property Flirt’s BACK!

Is there anything more fun than peering around other people's houses, imagining yourself in situ and guessing the price? Er, nope! Let the nosiness commence.

I don’t know about you but I love a little snoop around someone else’s house. So let’s have all push our noses up to the windows, peer in the cupboards, knock a few walls knowledgeably, and then the fun bit – guess how much it’s worth!

Today’s house of dreams is a brand new four-bedroom, two-bathroom barn conversion in Haddenham, Bucks (two miles from Thame, which is over the border into Oxon). The chocolate box village of Haddenham is proving to be catnip for commuters and parents looking for good schools. And even more importantly, it has a properly good coffee shop in Muddy Award-winner NORSK (priorities, people!).

This gorgeous gaff is in the old part of the village, crammed with cute cottages and period properties.

The show-stopping, airy, open-plan kitchen-diner has PARTY! written all over it.

And then there’s not one but two rustic wooden staircases up to the bedrooms. Fancy!

The lovely beams on the first floor nod to the property’s previous incarnation and add character and below there’s a bijoux garden that’s supereasy to maintain – leaving plenty of time to mix a G&T before Homes Under the Hammer starts (oh, just me?).

And if you get bored of the garden, just turn right out of the house, walk five seconds and you’re at the village’s ridiculously photogenic duckpond, with the church just behind. The rural idyll? You bet!

So how much is it on for, do you think? Best guesses in the comments box below (or if you insist playing cheatypoos, then click here to find out).
