Ugly House To Lovely House: Series 2
George Clarke presents a series which proves that even the ugliest houses can with help from some of the country’s leading architects be transformed with next to no budget.
Part 1: Gloucestershire
In the first episode the team meet Simon and Lisa, who recently bought a building in rural Gloucestershire in such a shoddy state that neighbours compared it to the house in Amityville Horror.
Part 2: Hertfordshire
There are ugly houses, and then there’s Nick and Sonia’s place. Can architects transform their foul flat into a real home? And what will the neighbours think?
Part 3: Bournemouth
George challenges innovative architect Greg Blee with transforming an impractical, upside down house with a mishmash of living spaces for Martyn and Sally. The building is so badly laid out that to get from the kitchen to the garden you must go through the master bedroom.
Part 4: Colchester
Architect Chris Dyson helps Wendy and Allan in Colchester, who are desperate to transform their horrible-looking 1960s home into something more modern. Adamant that the house needs a drastic makeover externally and a major reconfiguration internally, can Chris satisfy their high expectations while sticking to their £150,000 budget?
Part 5: Nottingham
Sheffield architects Howard Evans and Prue Chiles set out to transform Mandy’s 1980s redbrick house, which stands out like a sore thumb among the grand Victorian properties it sits alongside on Nottingham’s prestigious Park Estate. The duo are familiar with unlocking the potential of buildings, but this could be their biggest challenge yet.
Part 6: East Sussex
George Clarke introduces award-winning architect Carl Turner to Darren and Hannah, who hope to redesign their bungalow home in Heathfield, East Sussex, on a budget of £45,000. Carl proposes a radical revamp, to be done in stages as finances allow. But with another baby on the way, Darren is keen for the family to get the most space possible now. With money running out and the roof leaking, will the refurb be completed in time for the new arrival?
