Property Blog World: Round up for Week Nov 9th 2009

9 Nov

It’s Monday morning, which means one thing – it’s time for our weekly blog round-up. Here’s what’s been happening on some of our favourite property blogs.

It’s murder most horrid over at Brickwork, who are delving into the history of 46 Lower Belgrave Street, where the nanny of Lord Lucan’s children came to an untimely end in one of the country’s most notorious unsolved murders.

They’re also taking a look at a Twickenham house with a double whammy of history – the former home of both Victorian Poet Laureate Lord Tennyson and the Who guitarist Pete Townshend.

And flying the flag for celebrity property porn on the other side of the Atlantic, as always, is the Real Estalker. This week they’re disputing rumours that Tom Cruise has shelled out $18,000,000 for a new home in San Francisco.

Over at Winging It, Mike has found a Wreck of the Week that promises a good return for someone not afraid of hard work.

The Rat and Mouse have found an interesting survey. According to, 75 per cent of 721 respondents wouldn’t buy a house, no matter how perfect in every other aspect, if it couldn’t achieve 1Mbps in broadband speed.

And finally, 4Homes are asking which crafts should be included in the next series of Kirsty’s Homemade Home (which will be on our screens some time in 2010), giving viewers the chance to shape the series.

Happy reading!
