Property search: this week's budget is £450,000 and takes us to West Kensington, Hampshire and Suffolk

We uncover a one-bedroom party pad in West Kensington, a two-bedroom Edwardian cottage in Hampshire and a thatch B&B in Suffolk with over two acres of gardens and woodland, a pool and a gym.

Buy of the week: West Kensington, W14 - £450,000
This apartment in a prime West Kensington street has had a recent makeover. The one-bedroom property has been fitted with oak floors throughout and attractive privacy blinds, while the reception room —which has a high ceiling, a large bay window, a sleek seating area and a wall of clutter-banishing storage space — now makes the perfect place to party.

Out of town buy of the week: Lymington, Hampshire - £399,950
Small but perfectly formed is this two-bedroom Edwardian cottage is part of a charming collection of homes on a horseshoe road in the pretty Hampshire town of Lymington.

Hedges and mature trees enclose a lush garden with a paved terrace that sits under a jasmine-clad pergola, and there's a summerhouse and garage/workshop. A log burner makes the living room cosy, while the dining room happily seats six and the conservatory is perfect for after-dinner drinks.

Life-changer of the week: Stowmarket, Suffolk: £400,000
Grade II-listed Valley Cottage in the Suffolk village of Aspall is a real find if you fancy turning your hand to running a boutique B&B. The thatched beauty, bordered by open countryside, is a complete retreat with a plot of two and a half acres of colourful gardens and woodland, a stream, an open-air swimming pool, sun terrace, summerhouse, gym and sauna. The house has beams and studwork through four bedrooms, a neat little bar and rustic sitting and dining areas warmed by inglenook fireplaces.
