This month’s most unusual properties
As the end of October draws near we take a look at the quirkiest and most unusual property listings we’ve spotted across Rightmove this month – including an iconic village windmill, a beautiful barn conversion and a church renovation you won’t believe.
A magical looking lighthouse in the wilderness
This Grade II listed lighthouse sits in Lincolnshire close to the Norfolk border and overlooks the wide expanse of The Wash, right at the mouth of the River Nene Estuary.
The property boasts four bedrooms in total along with all the usual amenities but it’s both the location and the astonishing views this home enjoys that really make it stand out.
An iconic windmill dating back over 200 years
The Black Windmill is a Grade II listed property that’s become a true landmark in Whitstable, enjoying a panoramic location with incredible views across the town and the surrounding coastline.
The mill dates back to 1815 while the house itself was built around 1928 and together they come together to create one truly unique property that’s now been converted into a fantastic five-bedroom family home.
A bonafide military sea fort just off the British coast
This unique property is a true piece of British Naval history, originally built during World War One to protect Britain’s east coast.
The post was still manned until the early 1960s, but has been relatively unused since this time, requiring a full renovation now from its future owners.
A refurbished church that’s perfect for a large family
Church House is a wonderful chapel conversion in the hamlet of Bow Of Fife, surrounded by gorgeous countryside that’s perfect for a new owner who loves to explore the outdoors.
This renovated property has been transformed into a comfortable family home with five bedrooms in total, along with some brilliant additions including a drawing room, family study and a breath-taking viewpoint from the old church tower.
A castle-style property on the border of Durham
This fortified Grade I listed home is Mortham Tower – a super quirky property that sits on the Durham – North Yorkshire border and serves as a fantastic example of a beautiful medieval manor house.
Filled with original features that have been well preserved through the years, it’s both the history of the property and the scenery surrounding it that make this a real dream property in our eyes.
A feature-filled character property set inside stunning gardens
The gardens of this quirky property alone would make us do a double-take – combining both formal and informal planted areas ranging from a wild flower meadow to luscious lawns.
Once you take a closer look at the house you’ll soon see why we’re spotlighting it – a contemporary country house that has almost flawless design and detail throughout. This is definitely not your average family home.
A gorgeous quirky home with more than a few luxury additions
This stone-built detached property enjoys some really quirky features throughout thanks to a heavy focus on carved oak interiors, 130 acres of land including a large lake and several other outbuildings ranging from stables to a timber lodge.
The estate is set within its own private, gated grounds and just some of the many luxuries inside are a home gymnasium and a sauna. Perfect for those who enjoy a bit of indulgence from time to time.
