This smart Victorian garden flat is in sought after Sands End, Fulham. A total refurbishment has given the 790sq ft home a bright high-spec living space with seagrass matting, a sleek bathroom and two double bedrooms that are elegantly dressed with window shutters. The open-plan reception/dining space has a statement kitchen with a heated floor that flows through bi-folding doors out to a walled garden.
You can coo over this Cotswolds cutie to your heart's content once you join the country set in Lower Slaughter — one of Gloucestershire's prettiest villages. If its clipped gardens and sweeping driveway don't win you over, a bevy of interior treats will. Traditionalists will love the Aga, the 22ft drawing room and the fine conservatory, along with the views from the mullioned windows of the three bedrooms. But if all that's not enough, the house comes with planning permission for a double-storey extension.
City living might become a distant memory once you up sticks for The Old Coach House in the Norfolk village of Ingoldisthorpe, neighbouring the royal Sandringham estate. There's bags of potential with this 4,000sq ft house to turn its seven bedrooms into guest suites or perhaps divide off a section for a profitable, high-rent annexe. There is high-spec modern detailing among the beams, exposed bricks and log burners. Most impressive is the bright, spacious sitting room, which sits under a galleried landing and a high vaulted ceiling.
