Two-bed flat in Nottingham

 Guide price: £325,000 – £335,000


This property, which is being sold through Liberty Gate estate agents, might look normal from the outside, but the inside holds some hidden depths.

The cave includes a ventilation and heat recovery system a well as a wine chiller – perfect for a big night in.

Former nuclear bunker in Folkestone

Rightmove says it’s ‘one of the most impenetrable properties’ on the site, with rooms several metres underground.


The property has lovely views of the Kent coastline to boot – when you’re outside the bunker that is.

While the guide prices is £50,000, it’s being sold at auction ia Miles & Barr estate agents.

Four-bed house in St Leonards-on-sea,

Guide price: £1.25m 


This East Sussex property is called The Bath House as it was once a Turkish – you guessed it – bath house back in the Victorin era.

But the interiour’s brightly-coloured carnival theme is what makes the property really interesting.


Chandeliers hang from the high ceiling, a clown painting and lights adorn the walls, and a bowling alley sits in the main living room.

M&W Sales and Lettings has set an asking price of £1.25million.

Three-bed house in London

Guide price: £6.5m


This property, which is being sold via estate agents Sotheby’s International, comes complete with its own private steam room and narrow indoor swimming pool off the master bedroom.

Designed by Sir David Adjaye, the same man who designed Ewan McGregor’s house, this King’s Cross home also comes with some unique Brutalist decor choices.


The pool is in a dark, cave-like passageway with a black ceiling and walls, and the kitchen/dining area has an bright green reading nook off to the side.

Six-bed mansion with a vineyard in Wales

Guide price: £10m 


Not only is this property pretty stunning, nestled as it is in the lush Welsh countryside, but it also comes with its own vineyard.

Ancre Hill Estates, near Monmouth, in Wales, has a whopping 137 acres to its name.


The award-winning vineyard produces 100,000 bottles of wine each year, so you’ll never need to nip out for a bottle again.

As if that wasn’t enough, the mansion – which is being sold through Savills estate agents – also comes with an outdoor swimming pool and a tennis court.

Houseboat, London

Guide price: £2m


This isn’t any old houseboat – this luxury liner once belonged to fames French singer Edith Piaf, who used it when she was touring around Europe.

The Flamant Rose, or Pink Flamingo in English, has been moored at St Katherine’s Dock marina in London since the late 90s.


Much of the boat’s old fashioned charm remains, with the bedroom separated from a full-sized bath with some very glamourous old Hollywood looking curtains and a sizeable living area to boot.

There’s also a deck big enough for tables and deck chairs – perfect for entertaining (when we’re finally allowed to do that again).
