TV architect George Clarke on the hunt for ambitious period homeowners in Lincoln

This story is over

Owners of period properties in Lincoln could be in with the chance of redesigning their homes with the help of TV architect George Clarke for a new Channel 4 series.

The British television presenter, lecturer and writer, best known for his work on programmes like The Restoration Man and George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, is casting in Lincoln this week.

Whether they’re living in a Victorian terrace, a Regency flat, an Edwardian semi or something even older, homeowners looking to transform their period properties are being sought by the Channel 4 team.

George Clarke and his team are looking to help families uncover historic hidden gems, and create ‘fabulous homes fit for the future’.

He said: “The problem is so many of us live in homes where generations of previous owners, developers and DIYers have wrecked the interiors and left us confused about what to do. We are terrified of tearing out features that may be the must-have selling points of tomorrow.

“I want to create architectural interiors that correct past mistakes, restore what is authentic, while at the same time transforming those spaces to suit the way we live in the 21st century”.

The new series, George Clarke’s House Rules, will focus on the design dilemmas of those trying to achieve a stunning modern look in a period property.

He added: “My house rules will help everyone answer their most difficult home questions. What should we keep or throw away? What should we restore? How can we make our home, built for a past generation, work for us?”

The team are looking for homes of all sizes, and all architectural periods, including listed properties. Full planning permission and finance must be in place.

To apply, people must contact the House Rules team on 07599882416 or email [email protected]
