If you’re anything like us you may have a slight obsession with Grand Designs. Whether they are full chronicles, programme features or award winners we want to see them all. Below are our top 10 on the market.

How many do you recognise?

1. A Venetian style water tower with 360 degree views of London – it doesn’t get more grand than that. Now on the market for £5.2m.
Five bed in London – Foxtons


2. Featured back in 2004, Kevin McCloud had this Scottish home in his top 20 of all the Grand Designs. He described it as “a beautiful, romantic building, like a ship or an ark”.
Four bed in Helensburgh – Savills


3. ‘The White House’ – a seafront oasis or quirky and cool with stunning views.
Three bed in East Sussex – Phillips and Stubbs


4. Dubbed ‘The Sugar Cube’ this is another truly unique grand design. Now for sale at £1.5m.
