This week in property

Big Brother House this is not Davina!
Celebrity (and we use that term loosely) Big Brother has returned to our screens, but this time on Channel 5. The house itself has always been iconic so how does it measure up this season? Well the short answer is it all looks a bit familiar! Say hello to Ikea and goodbye to any kind of comfort and you've got the Big Brother house.

Big trouble in leafy Highgate
Kate Moss has once again courted controversy, this time with her choice of home renovations. Not too long ago her neighbours were in uproar over the "tacky footballers wives style gym and steam room" and now a local councillor is getting in on the act. Maya de Souza raised concerns over the proposed basement conversion causing disruption to local residents and even raised the possibility of flooding. Would there be such concern if these were the plans of a normal resident? Who are we to say..

UKs most expensive home sold for £140 million
An unidentified Russian has bought the UK's most expensive property. Park Palace, a 300 year old country house set in hundreds of acres was sold for £140 million, beating last years record purchase price of £136 million for One Hyde Park. Wealthy overseas buyers have been snapping up so called 'super-prime' properties as long term homes and investments, but beyond the super rich the market has continued to slow. So while you dream of swanning around your very own country estate make you more realistic home aspirations reality with the help of a Local and Trusted tradesman.
