Which festive home is your favourite?
Santa is almost ready for Christmas and here at Zoopla we’re feeling festive too. So we’ve pulled together our favourite 10 homes for sale that should provide the perfect inspiration for your holidays.
1. Easiest roof for a sleigh to land on
Santa will have a nice easy landing on this house in Frinton-On-Sea, Essex, thanks to its flat wide roof. He’ll need to be careful not to do any damage though as this 1930s property is Grade II listed.Available via The Modern House
2. Widest chimneys for Santa
Even if Santa has overdone it on mince pies all-year-round, he won’t have any trouble getting down either of the two HUGE chimney stacks on this five-bedroom house in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.Available via Hamptons International
3. Best for an in-house tipple
It’s tradition to leave drink out for Santa when he stops by, but in this grand house in Rossendale, Lancashire, he can help himself to an entire bar. Let’s hope he doesn’t drink and fly.Available via Farrow & Farrow
4. The house that guests will never leave
Are the polite hints you are dropping through ever-widening yawns not doing the trick? Well, try ejecting guests out of THIS five-bedroom west London townhouse where luxury features include a cinema and heated indoor swimming pool.Available via Ryletts Residential
5. Most elf-friendly home
This cosy cottage in the village of Eye in Suffolk would make an excellent home for an elf (or two) looking to retire from the North Pole and head to slightly warmer climes.
Available via Parson Estate Agents
6. Most inviting room for hosting
The extended family will be begging to come over for Christmas dinner if you have a dining room as exquisite as this one in Cambridge. Its floor-to-ceiling French doors lead out to the garden – hopefully covered in snow come Christmas day.Available via Fine & Country
7. Biggest kitchen for cooking Christmas dinner
For many, Christmas day is the most hectic of the year when it comes to the kitchen. But a kitchen as vast as the one in this four-bedroom farm house in South Queensferry, just outside Edinburgh, at least gives you plenty of space to make a mess.Available via McEwan Fraser Legal
8. Old-fashioned music room for festive singing
Ready or not, you have to gather the family round for some Christmas carols with a music room like this. Nestled within this eight-bedroom house in Hampshire’s Lymington, it has space for a grand piano, several singers as well a lovely log burner to keep everyone toasty.Available via John D Wood & Co.
9. Best cinema room to soak up the Christmas classics
The chic cinema room in this mansion in Kingston upon Thames, south west London, is the perfect spot to retreat after a long day of present-opening. It boasts the very latest tech, including a full HD 3D projection system with a three-metre screen and a Dolby cinema speaker system.Available via Coombe Residential
10. Best house to hide in if/when the going gets tough
When the kids are getting tetchy and your patience is running low with the in-laws at the end of the day, you can retreat to your own secret room in this house in Selby, North Yorkshire. Fake wardrobe doors disguise the extra space, so you’re unlikely to be disturbed by anyone.Available via EweMove
