Brightly Colored Period Home in U.K. Village of Therfield Hits the Market

A period home loaded with character and history and painted candy apple red is on the market in the U.K. village of Therfield, in Hertfordshire, asking £1.85 million (US$2.4 million).

The home, which dates to the 16th century, is new to the market, having just launched, according to a representative from listing brokerage Savills.

The bold color scheme of the exterior extends into the interior of the home, where more reds, greens and yellows feature as prominently as the home’s original features, which include wooden beams and hardwood floors.

The six-bedroom property is “one of the most interesting homes I have seen for a long time,” listing agent Justin Godfrey said in a statement. It has “lots of charm and character with some fabulous entertaining spaces.”

Manhattan Beach home of former UCLA football coach Jim Mora hits the market

Former UCLA football coach Jim Mora has tossed his Manhattan Beach home onto the market for $11.995 million.

The custom home in the beach city’s Hill Section was designed by Hermosa Beach-based firm Starr Design Group.

A gated courtyard marks the entrance to the six-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom house. Inside, the home has riffs on contemporary and Balinese styling — rich mahogany frames bands of floor-to-ceiling windows and clerestories. The dark woodwork is repeated on the ceilings as well as the exterior gates and louvered screen.

The roughly 5,200-square-foot floor plan was designed so that the chef’s kitchen sits above the living room. A 16-foot island topped with sea pearl quartz anchors the kitchen space, while booth seating was built into the upper lip of the tiered design. An ocean-view family room sits off the kitchen area.

Set on a roomy 9,000-square-foot lot, the property has a built-in barbecue, patio space, lawn

The pastel, palm-surrounded Mid-Century Modern home is actually located in Los Angeles’ Brentwood neighborhood, though it doubled as the outside of the fictional Miami home on the popular 1980s and ‘90s sitcom – the interiors were shot in a studio.
