Review

George Clarke has always maintained that his favourite period of architecture is Georgian – even though he got some Twitter flak in the last series over the budget-busting transformation of a Kentish couple’s gloomy Georgian property.

Undeterred, he’s tackling two more Georgian houses in this edition. One is a Peak District farmhouse with a pleasing exterior but a horrible interior: ghastly wallpaper, nasty shag pile carpets and a cramped bathroom. The other – a Yorkshire townhouse – has many glorious period features including lofty ceilings and a grand staircase, but will a nearly 200-year-old building withstand the renovations needed to make it suitable for 21st-century living?

Summary

George tackles two very different properties from the Georgian architectural period. First, he visits a townhouse in Yorkshire, which features high ceilings, a grand staircase and a heavy chandelier hanging from the original ceiling. Later, he travels to the Peak District, where he comes across a farmhouse which is in desperate need of a transformation.
