1. Detached house, Colchester, Essex, for £285,000
With its mini-gym, garden room, French windows, wooden floors and sun-drenched patio, there’s nothing humble about this detached family home in Essex – aside perhaps from the £285,000 price tag. Its three bedrooms form part of a perfectly-formed sanctuary which is refreshingly open and light.

2. Converted church, East Mosely, Surrey, for £2m
Masterfully transformed into a beautiful living space while retaining its divine features such as vaulted ceilings and stained-glass windows, this converted church in Surrey is definitely worthy of praise. But, despite its relatively humble bedroom count, the £2m asking price is Godly too.

3. Barn conversion, Swansea, Wales for £495,000
This converted barn which sits in the Welsh countryside is anything but average. With its rustic fireplaces, stone feature walls and beamed ceilings it’s the perfect reflection of its rustic surroundings. And, while bedrooms are limited to three, each offers enough square-footage to turn cartwheels in.
