These 6 bungalows currently for sale on Zoopla will transform the way you think about low-rise living in Britain.

What do you picture when you think of a bungalow? If it’s tiny rooms, a patchwork of different carpets and an old gas fire, think again.  These six bungalows for sale on Zoopla are proof this type of property can be at the very cutting edge of cool.

1. Two-bedroom detached bungalow in Shipdham, Norfolk, for £350,000

Built in 2014, this Siberian Larch-clad bungalow is anything but old-fashioned. High arched ceilings and an open plan living area with sliding glazed panels give this two- bedroom, two-bathroom property an air of grandeur.

2. Five-bedroom detached bungalow in Blackhall, Edinburgh, for £680,000

With two-bedrooms and a bathroom built into the roof space, this is technically a chalet bungalow. That said, a whole family could live comfortably on the main ground floor alone, where you’ll find a further three bedrooms and plenty of open-plan living space.

3. Three-bedroom detached bungalow in Liversedge, West Yorkshire, for £449,950

This late 1960s stone-built bungalow has been given a thoroughly modern makeover. As well as its trendy open plan kitchen, living and dining area, there’s a six-seat pine sauna and huge games room with a pool table and drinks cabinets.

Did you know? Bungalows represented just 1% of all new-build homes in the UK in 2016, according to the National House Building Council.

4. Four-bedroom semi-detached property in Wimbledon, London, for £2.15m

This luxury new-build home might not be billed as a bungalow, but it’s single storey living nonetheless, with an internal courtyard and sky lights to let in plenty of natural light. The eye-watering price tag is explained by its location, just a few minutes’ walk from London’s Wimbledon Village.

Available via Hawes & Co

5. Three-bedroom bungalow in Kingsbridge, Devon, for £595,000

Check out the breath-taking panoramic views from the dining area of this super-contemporary Devonshire bungalow. They can also be enjoyed from the master bedroom, which boasts sliding doors that open out onto a sleek deck.

Available via John D Wood & Co.

6. Two-bedroom detached bungalow in Harraton, Washington, Tyne & Wear, for £339,950

A fiberglass roof and a resin driveway are just part of this home’s recent refurbishment. Floor-to-ceiling windows take full advantage of the pristine wrap-around garden – and not a draft excluder or tea cosy in sight.
