The Great British Bake Off is back on our screens. But even if you’re a total novice, these 10 kitchens on Zoopla will soon have you reaching for your apron.
Only a select few bakers make it to the much-famed Great British Bake Off tent. But that shouldn’t stop the rest of us rustling up our own show-stopping tower of éclairs. And how about doing it in one of these 10 fantastic kitchens on Zoopla?
1. Six-bedroom detached house in Dilton Marsh, Wiltshire, for £995,000
The oil-fired Aga AND built-in electric oven make this farmhouse-style kitchen has to be every baker’s paradise. Hand-built cabinets, limestone floors, granite worktops and a double-bowl Belfast sink give this ‘heart of the home’ an indulgent edge.

2. Four-bedroom end-of-terrace house in Copthorne, West Sussex, for £400,000
Bigger doesn’t always mean better as this small but perfectly-formed kitchen demonstrates. Its meticulous organisation and exposed cabinets are great for displaying ingredients and utensils – and, after all, you don’t need much space to whip up an amazing chocolate tart.
Available via Connells
3. Five-bedroom detached house in Reigate, Surrey, for £1,250,000
The smell of freshly-cooked bread from downstairs always makes getting up that little bit easier. And the huge newly-renovated kitchen in this house comes with double ovens and a proving drawer (a warm drawer in which bread can slowly rise).
Available via Move Revolution
4. Four-bedroom detached house in Saltash, Cornwall, for £340,000
Along with an abundance of wall and base units to store all your crockery, this Cornish home comes with a pantry and utility room – so plenty of space for an extra fridge or freezer to store the fruits of a hard days’ baking.
Available via Fox & Sons
5. Seven-bedroom terraced house in Balham, South London, for sale £3,050,000
Why settle for one island when there’s room for two? This vast kitchen has room for a whole pastry school worth of bakers. And with its marble counter tops, solid wood cabinetry and in-built appliances favoured by top chefs, no expense has been spared.
Available via Hamptons International
6. Three-bedroom bungalow in Gringley-On-The-Hill, South Yorkshire, for £400,000
The worst part about baking, of course, is the clearing up afterwards. But the self-cleaning Neff oven (the same brand as used in the Bake Off tent), integrated dishwasher and large Belfast sink in this Doncaster home, should help ease the blow.
Available via Hunters
7. Three-bedroom detached house in East Malling, Kent, for £550,000
With its exposed wooden ceiling beams, fire-engine red Aga and matching gingham curtains – the country kitchen in this Grade II-listed home is beyond charming. Who cares if your pastry dessert ends up with a soggy bottom?
Available via Ibbett Mosely
8. Two-bedroom flat in Wapping, London, for £1,150,000
It might be more MasterChef than Great British Bake Off but at least this cutting-edge kitchen offers plenty of natural light – and the stainless steel finish will be super-easy to wipe down.
Available via Urban Spaces
9. Four-bedroom detached house in Hinstock, Shropshire, for £650,000
You could have several cakes baking at once in the four-oven Aga that comes with this kitchen – with your jam or caramel bubbling away on the two hotplates and a meat pie in the built-in electric oven (theoretically of course).
Available via Barbers Newport
10. Six-bedroom detached house in Acton, London, for £1,750,000
This bespoke asparagus green kitchen comes with integrated handles on the units to keep the space sleek, while the retro floor tiles and brickwork wallpaper add to its ‘cool’. Just don’t ruin it by getting flour all over the place.
Available via Orchards of London
