On the rugged coast of North Ayrshire in the small village of Fairlie you’ll find this impressive Georgian home.

Looking to downsize by the beach? It doesn’t get much better than this deceptively spacious beachfront bungalow where you can wake up to the fresh salty sea air every morning.

5. Six-bedroom detached house in Selsey, West Sussex, for £1.4m
It’s not quite a mansion in Malibu, but this stylish six-bedroom home with a swimming pool is about as California chic as you can get in the UK. The 1960s property has been refurbished from top to bottom to create a trendy seaside escape. There’s also the opportunity to make some money back on the £1.4m price tag as the two-bedroom annexe could be used as a holiday let.
