What do you picture when you think of listed homes for sale? A stately manor surrounded by manicured lawns? A row of historic townhouses in Mayfair or Bath? Or perhaps a chocolate box cottage in the Cotswolds?

As beautiful as they all are, the UK’s collection of listed homes goes far beyond those famous archetypes and takes in our modernist, industrial, and classical heritage, from the purpose-built to the converted.

So for this week’s showcase, we’ve pulled together a trio of Grade II listed homes for sale. Choose from a Georgian villa near the Sussex coast in Hastings, a converted flour mill near Faversham in Kent, and the UK’s very first modernist house on the outskirts of Amersham in Buckinghamshire.

Elevated Georgian villa

This Grade II Listed Georgian villa in Hastings was designed by the distinguished architect Joseph Kay – one of the founding members of the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Completely reimagined from its former life, historic Tonge Mill makes a great finale to our showcase of listed homes for sale and provides 6,000 sq ft of mixed-use space including a three-storey home, a series of workshops, and a self-contained cottage. The lakeside gardens are a total joy, and there’s a gated parking area for multiple cars.
