For those on the hunt for a new property it’s always exciting to find something a little different. Here we’ve short-listed our top 10 most unusual homes on the market.

1. With inspiration taken from Thunderbird’s Tracy Island you can rest assured this is a unique home.

3. A sweet treat for tea fans. Your very own tea pot house for £10,000.
Scottish Borders – Rettie & Co


4. An adorable oast house that makes great use of it’s circular rooms.

    These properties are striking! I think people are becoming more innovative with their designs and ideas. Do you think some do so because they know that if they were to ever sell the property, the asking price will be very high? Prices have risen considerably over the years. On the other hand, a lot of people are choosing to remain at home and expand or extend their properties. These example go a little further than the usual loft or basement conversion. I guess it just goes to show how much can be achieved with creativity, hard work and money of course.

    I love the tea pot. It’s the type of thing I could imagine a sweet old women living in, kind of like the old woman in the shoe. Plus it’s such a good price at £10,000. It would make the perfect “granny flat” if you wanted to have your older parents live with you, whilst helping them to retain their independence. Really love this idea, it’s so quaint.
