Property search: this week's budget starts at £450,000 and takes us to Wimbledon, Gloucester and Dorset

This week, Faye Greenslade uncovers a modern flat in Wimbledon Common; a spacious family home in the heart of the Cotswolds and a Dorset farmhouse with two acres of grounds with a two-bedroom holiday cottage
Buy of the week: Wimbledon, SW19 - £455,000
With Wimbledon in full swing, where better to imagine living than next to SW19’s famous common? This neatly turned out flat on the lower ground floor of a Georgian building is lucky enough to have leafy acres on its doorstep. Limed-oak floors and pale walls are a perfect blank canvas, lit by big sash windows, while plenty of storage solutions will keep clutter at bay. A butler sink and bespoke cabinetry lend a posh, country living feel to the kitchen - open-plan to a spacious reception room, while the bathroom is tiled in marble and the bedroom has fitted wardrobes. The charms of Wimbledon Village are just a stroll away.

Swap of the week: Cirencester, Gloucestershire - £450,000
if you need an escape from the hustle and bustle of London life, head for the ‘Capital of the Cotswolds’ - Cirencester and bag an exclusive address on Dollar Street, home to this four-bedroom honey pot. Beyond the wide oak front door are two reception rooms, both with window seats, exposed stone walls and open fires, and a newly extended kitchen showcasing a stone floor, wood worktops and cream units under a glazed roof. Rising up to the eaves across the upper floors are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The cherry on this cake is a pretty little walled courtyard garden, perfect for afternoon tea.
