This week’s 'Property price twins' are both five bedroom detached houses that are on the market for £339,950. Which one would you prefer to own?
1. Five bedroom detached house in Sampson Street, Eastoft, Scunthorpe, for £339,950
This sprawling 1930s property comes with a paddock and warehouse, making it an ideal opportunity for someone who wants to run a business from the comfort of their own home. It sits outside Scunthorpe and is within an hour’s drive of Doncaster, Hull and Leeds.
A long gravel driveway to the side of the house leads to the warehouse and paddock. The brick, block and steel construction has full planning consent for use as a storage and distribution. It totals 4,500 sq ft and includes insulated offices, storage and an alarm system. As the property comes with a large paddock, the warehouse could potentially be converted back into a barn or stables and used as an equestrian facility.
The house itself offers plenty of space for all the family. Downstairs there are two reception rooms with bay windows and open fireplaces as well as a separate study where children can concentrate on their homework. The impressively large kitchen-diner contains a double oven and a five ring gas hob, making it ideal for brushing up those culinary skills.
There are bedrooms and bathrooms galore in this home. And to top it off, the master bedroom comes with a dressing room and ensuite bathroom.

2. Five bedroom detached house in Darren Ddu Road, Ynysybwl, Pontypridd, for £339,950
Our second property is this modern family home that was built only 15 years ago. The house backs on to rolling countryside, but isn’t too secluded as it is part of a village community. It is less than 10 minutes from the market town of Pontypridd and only a 24 minute drive to Cardiff.
The interior of the house is modern and would not need any extensive changes made to it. The vast kitchen-diner boasts underfloor heating, a Hotpoint four ring electric hob, a Bosch double oven and integrated dishwasher, and space for housing an American-style fridge freezer. The dining area contains French doors that lead out onto the garden patio – perfect for alfresco dining in warmer months.
With two large reception rooms there is plenty of room for children to spread out with their toys. Alternatively the study could be used as a designated play room. Upstairs nearly all of the bedrooms have extensive storage space thanks to fitted wardrobes, while the master bedroom benefits from an ensuite bathroom.
At the back of the property is a secure garden with a patio and lawn that offers access to the former double garage. The space is now used as a hobby room, but it could be used as a gym or even a home cinema. There is no need to worry about parking space though, as the block paved driveway has room for up to seven cars.
