Sometimes, you want to think outside the box. When you get deep into property hunting, everything can start to look the same. You see so many different properties, whether online or in person, that you start to confuse that three-bedroom that needed a new bathroom with that four-bedroom that had the weird paint color. But, luckily, some properties really break the mold and stand out from the crowd — you just have to know where to look.
Despite the property overload that can descend when you start browsing, it is possible to still find a home that’s unlike any other. Whether you’re looking for a secluded paradise or a colorful, playful feel, here are some of the most unique homes on the market right now.
It’s time to think pink. This vast four-bedroom house in Whitstable is not only one of the most unique and cheery pinks around, it also offers amazing views of the sea, with the sand right up your doorstep. It even comes with your own space on the beach to keep a boat, if you’ve got one lying around. And on top of it’s incredibly positioning, it also has an ample south-facing garden. What’s not to love?
If the beach isn’t your thing, maybe you’ll want to take to the mountains instead. What makes this home unique is its views of the banks of Loch Tay and the surrounding mountains. It’s secluded, breathtaking, and the perfect place to unwind. The whole home has been refitted to a high standard and, at a very reasonable £430,000, the price seems pretty unique, too.
If you’d rather be somewhere a little more bustling, this three-bedroom house in Salford with easy links into central Manchester is a total treat. While the inside features some amazing design choices (A Dr. Who-themed bedroom, anyone?), it’s the garden that makes this home truly unique. A lovely soft blue paint gives this garden a friendly feel, with additional designs for a seating area and a truly artistic take on an outdoor fireplace. And coming in at only around £250,000, it’s a unique opportunity to own a three-bedroom home.
It’s hard to believe that it’s actually London. It’s not just the 3,300 square feet of space at your disposal or the huge garden — the views over the local golf course make this Wimbledon home feel much further from the buzzing metropolis than it actually is. Though in need of an update, the sheer square footage gives you plenty of room to experiment and completely transform the place. Though, at over £2.2 million, it’s not going to come cheap.
It’s unusual to find a home and think, “It’s ready.” — but this four-bedroom detached house in Henfield is finished to such a high standard that you could move in tomorrow. With tons of unique features, including a massive, mature garden and a bespoke conservatory that you’ll never want to leave, this home is already picture perfect and waiting for you.
This updated stone cottage will make you feel like you’ve been transported to another time, with its gorgeous exposed beams, stonework, and even stained glass. Finished to a high standard and located on 1.5 acres of its own property, it boasts stunning views, a conservatory, and a lush garden space. All of this — and it’s only three miles from Lampeter and an easy drive from Aberystwyth.
Finding a home that really stands out from the crowd isn’t always easy, but you know something special when you see it. Keep your eye out for design features or a location that speaks to you, because you want your new home to feel like one-in-a-million.
