Bricks and water

latest unique homes for sale - converted pumping station in Hammersmith

On one of the prettiest stretches of London’s riverside, this light-bathed two-bedroom apartment in Hammersmith covers almost 900 sq ft and is converted from a glorious Thames Water pumping station.

The contrast between the iconic red brick Edwardian exterior and the sharp lines and contemporary finishes inside couldn’t be more stark, or more enthralling, with massive full-height windows showering the interior with natural daylight.

Floating paradise

latest unique homes for sale - floating home and permanent mooring neat Faversham in Kent

As you open the gate to Persevere, you’ll gasp in wonder at how something like this can be here – a floating home with a freehold mooring and a quarter of an acre of land on a creek near Faversham in Kent.

Inside, across 1,500 sq ft (140 m²), the interior centres on a vast open-plan living space where large full-height windows provide enchanting views outside. Further back are two double bedrooms, both opening onto a large deck and verdant gardens.

The structure will support an extra floor with roof terraces above, perhaps creating separate units. Meanwhile, there’s enough land to build a pair of cottages, subject to consent). So it’s easy to imagine future financial freedom with either proceeds from sales, or a lifetime income from holiday lets or long-term rentals.
