George Clarke’s Old House, New Home

Britain has some of the most beautiful historic houses in the world; from Victorian to Gothic, Arts and Crafts to Georgian – there are different architectural styles on every street across the country. But there’s a problem; the way houses were built years ago just doesn’t work for us today. What should we chuck, and what should we cherish? What should we repair? And what should we simply replace? What modern styles work in period properties?

In this returning series, architect George Clarke once again gets under the skin of homes with history to unlock their potential. He will create stylish solutions for period properties and make them fit for 21st century living.

Each programme features two very different makeovers including a medieval farmhouse, a tiny 30’s bungalow, a super skinny Victorian terrace, and a grand Georgian town house on the coast.

George will focus on the design dilemmas we have when trying to achieve a stunning modern look in a period home, proving that it is possible to create a perfect blend of old and new. The series has amazing reveals and offers a fresh, original take on property and interiors shows.
