Property search: this week's budget starts at £400,000 and takes us to Battersea, Suffolk and Kent

This week, Faye Greenslade uncovers a modern two-bedroom flat in Battersea; a Suffolk country home with wildflower meadows; and a Kent cottage with four acres of land and an orchard
Buy of the week: Battersea, SW11 - £500,000
Buying a sleek, two-bedroom flat just got easier at Shaftesbury Gate — Crest Nicholson’s new Battersea development — where the Help to Buy scheme provides a 20 per cent government equity loan. It means you only have to find a five per cent deposit. The flat has plenty of entertaining space, a master bedroom with an en suite and an über-chic bathroom, plus a decent-size balcony and the chance to grow vegetables at the communal allotments.

Life-changer of the week: Westmarsh, Kent - £530,000
In the Kent hamlet of Westmarsh, five miles from Sandwich, you can buy a useful chunk of countryside along with this gorgeous country cottage. Grade II-listed Russet House comes with four acres to horse around in but if you fancy setting up a serious equestrian business, there are paddocks, a stable block and a 30ft outbuilding handy for storing feed and other horsey stuff. The pretty garden includes an orchard and there are glorious views from the house’s three bedrooms.
