Looking for a one-of-a-kind home that’s still smelling of fresh paint? Take a look at these five homes that are a far cry from the typical suburban homogeneous developments.
1. Six-bedroom detached house in Brighton, East Sussex, for £2.75m
This stunning home looks like it could be plucked straight from California’s coastline, but it’s actually in Brighton. The crisp six-double bedroom home boasts a play room, music room, bike store, a 500-bottle wine cellar and balconies with panoramic sea views. Outside you’ll find a swimming pool, landscaped gardens and a barbecue area.
Available via Foster & Co
2. Two-bedroom detached house in Oval, London, for £825,000
Land to build an individual house on is tricky to come by in London, but this striking brick and copper clad home takes full advantage of its small plot. The architect hasn’t tried to force too many rooms into the space, instead giving the two-bedroom, two-bathroom house a simple and practical layout. There’s even some outside space, with a roof terrace, a balcony and courtyard all available to enjoy.
Available via Winkworth
3. Three-bedroom cottage in Lytchett Matravers, Dorset, for £450,000
Love the idea of a thatched cottage but less keen on low ceilings and dark rooms? This contemporary cottage with three double bedrooms could be the answer as it blends the best of old and new styles. New-build perks include a trendy kitchen-dining room, a utility room, downstairs cloakroom, a master bedroom with an ensuite and off-street parking.
Available via Greys
4. Three-bedroom detached bungalow in Norwich, Norfolk, for £425,000
Bungalows don’t always conjure images of modern sophistication, but this sleek new single-storey home definitely does. There’s no multi-colour carpets or avocado bathrooms suites. Instead, there’s a trendy wood and white gloss kitchen and calming stone bathrooms. It’d be perfect for someone looking to downsize and part exchange is being considered.

5. Three-bedroom semi-detached house in Kimberley, Nottingham, for £300,000
Get the best of both old and new with this three-bedroom home that’s been built in a former brewery from the 1840s. There are hints of its industrial past in the exposed metal beams of the open plan kitchen and living space, but otherwise it’s all brand new. It also benefits from off-street parking and is only six miles from the centre of Nottingham.
