The joys of spring

unique homes to buy - house in Hastings

Secluded in a sunny quiet spot away from passers-by, Spring Cottage sits proudly in a surprisingly central position in Hastings.

Built around the turn of the 18th century, the house retains its period character and charm while extensive renovations have injected the comfort, convenient and assurance of a contemporary home.

A rose without thorns

unique homes to buy rose cottage near Hastings

Looking like a picture-perfect thatched cottage, this wonderful single-storey home has been completely reimagined from its former life as a well-known cactus nursery.

Extended beyond its original envelope and remodelled with considerable panache, the decidedly modern interior of Rose Cottage includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a fabulous living space and kitchen that occupy separate spaces but share an inviting open connection.

Serving Regency style

Mixing Georgian heritage, sleek contemporary design and a mid-century modern vibe, this one-bedroom apartment has an historic location at the former Sarsons vinegar factory in Vauxhall.

Just ten minutes by foot from the riverside scene on the Thames path, the peaceful garden setting is close to Vauxhall and Nine Elms tube stations and well placed for enjoying all that’s on offer at the revamped Battersea Power Station.
