The Aga is blue, two-oven and oil-fired. The six-bedroom period house which comes with it is Clarence Court, in Congresbury, Somerset, 12 miles from Bristol. Dating from the 17th century but extended later, the house is five minutes' walk from the village centre and stands in its own gardens of two-thirds of an acre. For non-Aga days, there is also a Philips white oven and hob in the 21ft kitchen. pounds 300,000 through Savills (01225 444622).

Holly Cottage in Bourton-on-the-Hill, Gloucestershire, has a warm red Aga (gas-fired, two-oven) in its 17ft, beamed kitchen. The Grade II listed four-bedroomed house is tucked down a no-through-road towards the edge of the village, but it's just two miles from the mainline station at Moreton- in-Marsh. A 30ft stone barn provides garaging and storage. The gardens are as notable for a fine wisteria as they are for holly. pounds 248,000 through Hamptons (01386 852205).

Little Mariteau House in Winchelsea, East Sussex sports a green, electric two-oven Aga in the kitchen, with matching green Shaker-style painted units.

There is a detached garage at the end of the 82ft garden. pounds 180,000, through Phillips & Stubbs (01797 227338).
