Property Flirt

    Property Flirt

    Look at that garden! 3.5 acres of verdant paddocks AND it's right next door to Ashfold School. Niiiice. So, fellow nosey parkers - how much do you reckon?

  • Property Flirt – it’s back!

    It's been far too long since I've had a snoop around a grand design so here we are in sunny Amersham, Bucks - just think of me as a less grumpy Kevin McCloud. Welcome to Highover Park, a pristine Grade II listed, three-bedroom property, designed by Amyas Connell and Basil Ward in the 1930s - and one of the finest examples of modernist architecture in the land, no less. The question is: can you guess the price?

  • First public viewing of this Property Flirt!

    Well this is a first! A Property Flirt that’s so brand spanking new, it’s not even had its Open Day. This fully-refurbished beauty is in Haddenham, Bucks – a village that is proving to be catnip for commuters and parents looking for good schools. Bear that in mind when we play our little game of […]

  • Property Flirt – oh I say, Vicar!

    If you’ve never played Property Flirt before (and if not, what have you been doing with your surfing time?), welcome to one of the most popular bits of Muddy Stilettos, where I show you round a mega des res in Bucks or Oxon, you guess the price and the winner gets to go on a […]

  • Property Flirt

      Before the country called and breeding ensued, I spent years living in Islington with Mr Muddy. One of our pet jokes was walking past the beautiful Georgian squares their their lights on the curtains wide open (show offs!), peering in and singing a little song about ‘Looking into people’s houses/Seeing how they’re living’ (um, […]

  • A Georgian Property Flirt in Penn

    I’ll say straight from the off that this property is waaaaaay out my league, but isn’t it fun seeing how the other half live?! Have a good nose at this property, guess the price, and then see the bank manager, sell the family silver,  beg and borrow from your mum and dad (do they really […]

  • Property Flirt: a blousy 4-bed on the border

    Oooh la la and fling my bra (ahhhhh, remember those days?) Here’s a Property Flirt to titillate anyone on the Bucks/Oxon borders, a modern build that rises well above the standard thanks to some lovely architectural flourishes. Fancy guessing the price? No cheatypoos please, I’ll give you some clues, show you the pics, and then […]

  • The toughest Property Flirt yet – can you guess the price?

    Property Flirt is one of the most popular features on Muddy – because you’re all nosy like me! – so I’m all for keeping it interesting by giving you new challenges. This house is a tricky one to guess on price, I think it might have the better of you (wah, ha, haaaaaa). Not a […]

  • A very different Property Flirt

    We like to mix it up a bit on Muddy Property Flirts – a modernist Grand Design here, a cute cottage there. And this grand dame is different again. Because, um, we can’t get a view of her drawers. Why? This house been in the same hands since 1947, and there has been not much […]

  • A Grand Designs Property Flirt

    Well, well, well, what do we have here? Only a bona fide Grand Designs house to nose around! Very tricky to guess the price on architecturally pioneeering houses like this one, but let’s have a stab. What to tell you first? This modern ’round house’ is in Deanshanger, a village close to MK that has […]
