This week’s price twins are in Britain and Spain, which one would you spend your money on?
1. Three bedroom detached house in Straightway Head, Whimple, Exeter, Devon, for £139,950
Up first is this new build holiday lodge, which is part of a small development of 12 homes. The lodges can be tailored to individual requirements and are only available to purchase for over 50s, making it an ideal retirement option.
Inside the property there is a large open plan kitchen and lounge area that would be perfect for entertaining guests or relaxing in after a long day of walking in the countryside. The rest of the lodge consists of a master bedroom with an en suite, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
In the summer there is plenty of outside space to enjoy, with the property having a large balcony and an ample garden that is laid to lawn. It also has a lodge with two allocated parking spaces.
The nearby village of Whimple contains two pubs, a post office, tennis and cricket clubs, a main line railway station, and several general stores. The lodge is only a 19 minute drive to Exeter, which offers all major amenities, while the seaside town of Sidmouth is just over 10 miles away.

2. Three bedroom semi-detached house in La Finca Golf, Algorfa, Alicante, Valencia, Spain, for £139,992 (€185,000)
Our second property is in the warmer climes of Spain, where this brand new three bedroom semi-detached house is on the market. The house sits in the grounds of the five star La Finca golf and Spa Resort and offers views across the golf course.
The ground floor of the property consists of a large lounge and dining area, an open plan modern fitted kitchen, a double bedroom and a shower room. Upstairs there are two more double bedrooms, a shower room and a sun terrace.
Outside space is provided by ground floor terraces at the front and rear of the property. The front terrace overlooks the communal pool while the back terrace looks out on to the landscaped garden.
Importantly for overheated Brits, the house comes with air conditioning pre-installed, while those who are planning to lock up and leave the property will be reassured by the alarm system.
The house is just over half an hour’s drive from Alicante airport and only 20 minutes from the popular resort of Torrevieja and its famous beaches.
