July’s most popular properties – that’s those that haven’t previously featured on our list – were a mixed bunch catering to all possible budgets. There were a few surprises too...
1. Six-bedroom detached house in Kilmaurs, East Ayrshire, for £800,000
If you like the interior of this family home, you’re in luck – it’s being ‘sold as seen’ which means all furniture and fitting are included. One of 35 properties on this new Charles Church development, the six-bedroom pad sits on the first fairway of Rowallan Castle’s championships golf course.
Available via Cochran Dickie
2. Four-bedroom detached bungalow in Shepperton, Surrey, for £1.65m
This contemporary riverfront home offers a perfect blend of indoor and outdoor living thanks to its wrap-around terrace. And, as well as ample parking space, the house comes with boat mooring on the River Thames which lies just at the bottom of the landscaped garden.
Available via John D Wood & Co.
3. Four-bedroom detached house in Brixham, Devon, for £735,000
This home’s main draw has to be the stunning panoramic views of Brixham’s harbour and bay. And to take full advantage, it’s even been built ‘upside-down’ with its sleek kitchen and living room on the first floor and four bedrooms and bathrooms on the ground floor.
Available via Boyce Brixham
4. Seven-bedroom detached house in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, for £7m
Seven bedrooms for £7m? Homes don’t come much grander than this. But, while the Buckinghamshire mansion boasts all the usual extravagances – wine cellar, gym, cinema room, games room, au pair suite above the triple garage – you won’t get a swimming pool. So keep some cash back if you want one installed.
Available via Hamptons International
5. Four-bedroom detached house in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, for £199,995
An immaculate detached family home with four bedrooms, bright family bathroom, separate downstairs WC and ensuite from the master bedroom, utility room, real oak flooring, garage (and space for three cars) – and large south-facing garden manicured garden…all for under £200,000.
Available via Igloo
6. Three-bedroom end terrace house in Burnley, Lancashire, for £85,000
Ever seen a bathroom so big for a price tag so low? Whoever snaps up this spacious end-of-terrace home up will be onto a winner. The home is also conveniently placed for schools and the M65 for commuters, with Manchester just a 45-minute drive away.
Available via Keenans Estate Agents
7. Six-bedroom detached house in Fulmer, Berkshire, for £6.45m
As with all estate agent details, this home’s ‘19 miles’ distance from London is quoted as the crow flies. But that’s alright because the helipad in the garden means you can travel by air. The 12,000 square-foot mansion also comes with an infinity pool, home cinema and two separate self-contained lodges.
Available via de Mallet Morgan Ltd
8. Six-bedroom detached house in Misterton, Nottinghamshire, for £330,000
The stunning open countryside views from the back garden of this pristine Nottinghamshire home could alone be sufficient to persuade a new buyer to part with £330,000. But there’s also six bedrooms, three with their own ensuite, and one with a separate dressing room.
Available via Preston Baker
9. Nine-bedroom detached house in Alyth, Perthshire, for £725,000
Of the nine bedrooms in this detached period home, it’s guaranteed the kids will only be interested in one – that’s the one with the helter-skelter slide which leads straight down into the kitchen. Other perks include five bathrooms and a granny annex and a holiday cottage, which you can choose to let out.
Available via McEwan Fraser Legal
10. Four-bedroom semi-detached house in Wemyssfield, Fife for £120,000
With its dry and wet rot, penetrating damp and woodborer infestation, this once-grand Scottish Victorian home has certainly seen better days. But just think how magnificent it could be again if it were restored by the right owner? They’ll need £120,000 and whole lot of extra budget on top.
