At Home: In the Craft Corner

We all know that every man dreams of a craft corner – better known as a man cave. Or do we? Maybe the image of a man wanting to get away from his wife and locking himself in the garage is as out of date as this: However, I think it is true that we all, men and women, ar ...

What’s the Story? Highwaymen of Finchley Common

We have been experiencing a rash of motorbike robberies lately. They appear to be carried out  mainly by young men, working in pairs, grabbing valuables like phones and handbags. One of my colleagues had a run-in with a pair of these thugs on Finchley High Road recently and as ...

Stuck for something a bit different to do this weekend? Head for Ally Pally on Saturday where Cult Comedy Legend Tony Law joins forces with the creative minds behind Weirdos Comedy Club ‘to create the most original and ambitious comedy project of recent years’- The ...

Period Features: Need a Newel Post?

I don’t know about you but one of the things I love about our period homes is the newel post. This, as you will know,  is the main post which supports the stair handrail, and may seem a slightly strange feature to pick on, but think about it – it’s one of the ...

We are delighted to announce the draw for our September Spot-it! Competition took place on Tuesday in our East Finchley High Road office. Our partners in the September prize were the rather special people at the Phoenix Cinema  https://phoenixcinema.co.uk/PhoenixCinema.dll/Ho ...

Out and About: Bang Crash Wallop

It really feels like autumn is here with all the passion of burnished colours and squally showers. Get out into the season this weekend in one of our lovely parks – looks like Saturday is going to be the better day weather wise. I am also excited about the new block-buste ...

Period Features: Corbel or Console?

Much of our housing stock is Victorian or Edwardian. These beautiful homes are stuffed full of period features which are splendid but are not well understood in our modern era. For instance, do you know the difference between a corbel and a console? Take a look at this decorati ...

The weather forecast is not bad for this weekend – and certainly Sunday morning is looking brilliant for London’s  annual festival of all things Japanese. The action takes place in Trafalgar Square on Sunday 24 September from 10am until 8pm, with two stages and lot ...
