Ideal home: What’s on at this year’s Ideal Home Exhibition

This weekend and for the following two weeks London Olympia will host this year’s Ideal Home Exhibition, packed full of everything you could ever need for your home, as well as a chance to view all of the latest gadgets before they come onto the market.

If you are looking to renovate your home, you will be able to seek advice from some of the professionals at the show including this year’s celebrity guests George Clarke, who says that the secret to good renovation is in the planning, get some great British baking advice from the winner of The Great British Bake off - Candice Brown, Martin Lewis will be able to give you ideas on how to save money and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, King of design will be giving live demonstrations on how to do interior designing, as well as Olly Smith and Fred Sirieix.

At Intercounty we are always really interested checking out the life size ideal home concepts. This year there will be three houses showcased, the Property Ladder apartments, the rotating home as seen on Channel 4’s Amazing Spaces and the 21st Century House.

The 21st Century house has an intriguing mix of old and new, as it combines the look of a traditional home with all of the mod cons we would expect in a new build. This house interior of the house has been designed in a way that shows how to blend old with new to create a warm and inviting home.

You might remember our recent article Thatch is back, which explored the surge in popularity of thatch being used as a roofing material. This show cottage shows that thatch is not only cost effective but also as a great insulator against outside temperatures and noise pollution.

If your ideal home is a property with a thatched roof then Intercounty Stansted has this stunning three bedroom detached Grade II listed thatched cottage (featured) located in the highly regarded village of Ugley Green. The property has been renovated throughout by the current owners who have retained and restored a wealth of original features such as exposed wall and ceiling timbers and an inglenook fireplace in the dining room. The property also has a later contemporary extension to both the ground and first floor accommodation. On the ground floor there is a handmade kitchen, a dining room, a separate study/craft room (which could be used as a fourth bedroom), a ground floor bathroom and a large open plan living room with contemporary wood burner and bi-fold doors onto the gardens. Two staircases lead upstairs where there are three bedrooms and two en suites to bedroom one and two. Offers in excess of £725,000.

The property is positioned in the centre of a good size mature plot of approx. 0.4 of an acre. There is private parking on the driveway and access to a detached outbuilding which offers annex potential subject to planning and a single garage.
