The Modern House is an estate agency that helps people live in more thoughtful and beautiful ways. We believe in design as a powerful force for good. Inspired by the principles of modernism, we represent design-led homes across the UK which celebrate light, space and a truth to materials. Esquire credits The Modern House with "rewriting the rulebook on estate agency" and GQ voted us "one of the best things in the world".
Founded in 2005 by two former design-editors, Matt Gibberd formerly a Senior Editor at The World of Interiors, and Albert Hill who was the Design Editor at Wallpaper, The Modern House draws on this knowledge of the design industry to maximise the value of the homes we market.
Our network of registered buyers and influencers, built up over more than 15 years of operating, is unique in the industry. These are people who place a high value on design, and the idea of a home as an emotional investment as much as a financial one.
Our multi-award-winning website attracts more than 4.5 million visitors a year, and the audience continues to grow rapidly. We offer far greater exposure than our competitors for every home we represent.
Press and editorial coverage
We secure an average of 55 articles per month, and publish our own award-winning online design magazine.
That's exposure every single day of the year.
We have a powerful social network, including an Instagram account with the largest follower count of any estate agency globally.
Taking an art-market approach to selling, we augment our sales particulars with historical research and architectural material to create provenance. We commission carefully selected editorial photographers whose work is familiar from interior, architecture and lifestyle publications.
We have a highly educated team of people who believe in the value of good design and great service, all carefully chosen for their intelligence, integrity and dedication.
