Harbour master


South Town, Dartmouth, Devon

Price: £1.3m
Agent: Marchand Petit
Tel: 01803 839 190

They say: A boathouse in a stunning waterside position with direct water access and views over the harbour. It is currently arranged as two apartments, each with two double bedrooms, and there is planning permission for a third-floor, two-bedroom apartment with a balcony.

We say: This must be the perfect holiday arrangement: one to live/holiday in, and two to make money on. And while you're building the last one, you can take the opportunity to freshen up the other two.

Storming barn


Sedlescombe, East Sussex

Price: £625,000
Agent: Gilberts
Tel: 01424 715 050

They say: A rare opportunity to buy a recently converted barn set in a picturesque location. It's surrounded by secluded gardens and pasture, making it perfect for those with equestrian interests. Features include four bedrooms, a study and a galleried landing.

We say: The first health warning on this is that the agents haven't been able to establish if it is a freehold property, as they haven't got access to any legal documents. However, that needn't put you off if it ticks all your other boxes.

Putt it there


Trinity Road, Wandsworth, London SW17

Price: £785,000
Agent: Knight Frank
Tel: 020-8682 7777

They say: Stunning duplex penthouse apartment in an exclusive development with two bedrooms, a large living area and roof terrace.

We say: There is a putting green on the roof terrace, which should attract the City boys. A very light and spacious flat.

Makes scents


Prospect Terrace, Welburn, North Yorkshire

Price: £215,000
Agent: Carter Jonas
Tel: 01904 558 200

They say: Charming two-bedroom cottage recently modernised and refurbished to a high standard.

We say: This has been beautifully done inside and, while small, each of the rooms are a decent size. The paved garden is low-maintenance.

Family favourite


East Dulwich, London SE22

Price: £699,950
Agent: Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward
Tel: 020-8299 4499

They say: Family home located in a popular road with schools nearby. Presented in good condition, it has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a double reception, kitchen/diner and a larger than average south-facing garden backing on to playing fields.

We say: A perfect example of how a Victorian house can be adapted to suit the modern family. You know exactly what you're getting, and it's simply a question of whether the price and the location are right for your particular family. If it isn't, there'll be another one along in a minute.

Perfect chemistry


Berkeley, Gloucestershire

Price: £435,000
Agent: Alder King
Tel: 0800 279 2100

They say: A spacious five-bedroom house arranged over three floors in the heart of this historic town. Used as a chemist for over 100 years, it fronts on to the high street.

We say: The shop space is used as storage but similar properties on the street have converted that area into a large living room. You might need a bit of imagination to see how best to use all this space but the features – scrolling, panelling etc are fantastic.
