Most Unusual Listings This Month

The quirky properties have kept coming and this May we’ve got some pretty special ones to share with you… We’ve travelled up and down the country (and across Europe) to collect these unusual homes so we hope you enjoy.

This one shines brighter than the rest!

First up is what looks like a little lighthouse in Truro – but the lucky tenants need not panic about staying up all night, as this quirky home only uses its tower as a balcony off the bedroom.
