GRAND Designs presenter Kevin McCloud lives on an estate called The Glades, it has emerged.
McCloud’s red-brick semi is officially Number 24 but has a nameplate describing it as The Haven.
The structure is otherwise identical to the rest of the homes in the cul-de-sac, although as McCloud tells first-time visitors ‘it’s the one with the floral print wheelie bin’.
McCloud’s cleaner Mary Fisher said: “Kevin’s got a triptych of canvas-effect prints of snowy woodland in his living room, above his black leather DFS recliner.
“The centrepiece however is a flatscreen telly with massive speakers that he got off Gumtree.
“The floors are laminate but he absolutely freaks out if you come in with your shoes on.
“The downstairs toilet features a pop-art style picture of the Minis from The Italian Job and a stocking filler comedy book of golfing anecdotes. The soap is lots of little bits of old soap stuck together in one big lump.
“Kevin’s duvet has got pictures of parrots on it.”
McCloud’s spokesman said the presenter spends his time at the property working in the garden shed, a converted Victorian distilling vat roofed entirely in reclaimed ceramic tiling.
