And while the 56-year-old TV star has his fair share of “heartbreak” with the homes featured on the show, it looks like he might have some issues of his own to content with.
It’s been reported that he wanted to build a three-bedroom home complete with a study, open plan kitchen and a levelled garden on a site in Dartmouth Estuary, in south Devon.
The plot of land had remnants of a stone barn which he had hoped to transform into his dream home.
But according to reports, he has withdrawn plans for renovation after locals and councillors were displeased with the idea and believed it was not keeping with the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) – this is a designated natural landscape which is safeguarded in the national interest.
According to the Mirror, after 12 formal objections, Martin withdrew the plans before the planning authority South Hams District Council could have a final say on them.
Homes Under The Hammer airs weekdays at 10.30am on BBC.
