Property: Three To View

REASONS TO RENT

IT LOOKS more like a country mansion than a suburban block of flats, but Queensmere House is just a short walk from the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon.

The Gothic building has been converted into eight apartments, all accessed via a panelled entrance hall with black-and-white marble flooring. They have fitted kitchens and marble bathrooms, and all reception rooms are in the front wings.

The six remaining flats have two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Prices start at pounds 2,000 per month, unfurnished. Details from Chestertons on 0181-879 7922.

RENTING NEEDN'T be boring if you choose something like this loft apartment in the Old Aeroworks in Hatton Street, London NW8. The two-bedroom apartment is one of five in a converted industrial building, which was constructed for the Palmer Tyre Company in the Twenties. The firm went on to make gun turrets, tyres and brakes for Spitfire and Hurricane fighter planes and Wellington and Lancaster bombers during the Second World War.

This two-floor flat has two bathrooms, a reception room with wooden floors and high windows with sculptured metal shutters, and a spiral staircase leading up to the bedroom.

To be let unfurnished at pounds 580 a week; details from Knight Frank on 0171- 431 8686.

THIS GRADE II listed farmhouse in East Bergholt, Suffolk, is three miles from Manningtree railway station (60 minutes from Liverpool Street) so it could be the perfect spot to rent if you are trying to decide whether or not to make a permanent move out of London.

The 17th-century, four-bedroom Rookery Farm is being let with carpets and curtains included, and some flexibility on the existing furniture. It has a fitted kitchen with a two-oven gas Aga stove, and a drawing-room with an ingle-nook fireplace and French windows leading to the garden.

The farm has a private drive, and there is also a walled rose garden. The house is for rent at pounds 1,500 per month. Details are available from Strutt & Parker on 01473 214841.
