Next Episode of Ugly House to Lovely House with George Clarke is
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.
In the pretty village of Claverdon, Warwickshire, Steve and Celine's tatty 1960s A-frame house has become a totalÂ embarrassment. Untouched for nearly 50 years, it's stuck in a time warp and falling apart at the seams. To drag it into the 21st century and make it fit for a family of five, George Clarke has enlisted the help of innovative architect Graeme Williamson. Steve and Celine have their own ideas, but can Graeme convince them to buy into his ambitious architectural vision? Critically, will he be able to accommodate Celine's demand for a huge and dominant kitchen island, or will it all end in tears?
Amin and Amifa's 1920s house in Bellingham, south east London, isn't just ugly - the property's DIY extension added by former owners has been condemned. Their makeshift kitchen is an accident waiting to happen. The living room is dark and dingy and misaligned windows aren't doing anything for its kerb appeal. Transforming this monstrosity into something lovely is going to require amazing vision. And with a modest budget of £80K it's going to need an architect with ideas and ingenuity. George teams the couple with Carl Turner. Can his clever use of affordable materials help create a contemporary, spacious and adaptable home for this rapidly growing family?
In Saffron Walden, among the handsome period properties, one place sticks out like a sore thumb. Lucas and Hayley's 1970s four-bedroom home is bland, boxy, and dominated by a dysfunctional double garage on the outside. On the inside, the home is stuck in a time warp, and some truly bonkers 80s additions have added insult to injury. To tackle this litany of problems and transform their place into a modern family home, George Clarke enlists the help of multi award-winning architect Chris Dyson. Will Hayley and Lucas be brave enough to step outside their comfort zone and take Chris's radical plans on board?
George revisits Nottingham's Park Estate to find out if midwife Mandy has managed to complete the transformation of her upside-down house. Previously, architects Howard and Pru reworked the ugly 1980s exterior, and the first floor living area became a stylish, contemporary family space. But has Mandy managed to make the ground floor as spectacular?
