The Escape to the Country presenters have been lighting up our screens since 2002, helping people find their dream countryside properties, but what about the places they call home? 

What may surprise you, is that some of their houses are rather modern! From Nicki Chapman to Jules Hudson, here is where the hosts live when they're not filming…

Nicki Chapman's home

WATCH: Nicki Chapman shares tour of garden

Nicki Chapman lives in Chiswick, west London with her husband, record company executive Dave Shackleton. She previously told House Beautiful that despite living in the capital, she has made her house her "oasis". In November, she filmed a video of her stunning garden, complete with a terraced area and palm trees.

Her kitchen features glossy cream cupboards and frosted glass doors, while appliances include an induction hob and a Nutribullet.

Jules Hudson's home

Jules Hudson lives in Herefordshire with his wife Tania, their son Jack, and the family's two Labradors, Teddy and Lolo. They previously lived in London but Jules told The Times it was too "claustrophobic" while their new property has "space" and "its own plot".
