House swap – what will £850k get you?

Considering a move or just need a bit of escapism from the same four walls? We've popped £850k in the fantasy property pot, but what does that buy you across the Muddy counties?

Berkshire – £775,000

A Berkshire box ticker, the village of Pangbourne has it all – river location, great schools, cosy pubs, easy commute to London – and you can enjoy all of it whilst living in this cool converted Pump House set within an AONB! Sleek and modern on the inside, the three-bed offers open-plan living with vaulted ceilings and skylights creating a bright, airy space for a family. 

Essex – £850,000

Located in the village of Leaden Roding, just nine miles from Essex’s only city Chelmsford with its big-name shops and buzzy bar and restaurant scene, this versatile home has ample space for a family – five bedrooms, three reception rooms, garden room, kitchen with breakfast room – as well as a games room for the kids, and an outdoor bar for the grown-ups.

Devon – £800,000

If it’s views you’re after, this detached four-bed home at the the edge of the charming village of Malborough is a dead cert with sweeping views of the Salcombe-Kingsbridge Estuary in the heart of the South Devon AONB enjoyed from the two double bedrooms. Breakfast in bed with a view – result! 

Cornwall – £850,000

Fancy waking up everyday to a morning swim or coastal walk across gorgeous National Trust land? This charming three-bed detached property is just one street back from Polzeath Beach, with its excellent surf, and also features a balcony with views of the rolling Cornish hills. Bliss. 

Buckinghamshire – £750,000

Thought of a doer-upper have you breaking out in hives? This handsome two-bed cottage in the picturesque village of Fulmer, near Gerrards Cross, is immaculately-kept and ready to move straight in – plus there’s even a newly built garden room, ideal for WFH. 

Cambridgeshire – £800,000

Oozing Victorian charm with its bay-fronted windows, exposed wooden floorboards, original fireplaces and sash windows, this three/four-bed home features two reception rooms, an extended kitchen with bifold doors and impressively large master bedroom with skylights – but it’s the location that’s the clincher. The house is less than a mile from Cambridge centre and close to the popular Mill Road area with its thriving independent scene.

Norfolk – £850,000

Six miles south of buzzing Norwich, you’ll find this stunning, spacious four-bed on an award-winning custom-built development of 15 individually-designed homes all with an impressive CV of eco creds including built-in solar glass windows and roof panels, as well as energy-efficient underfloor heating. Sustainable and stylish – just what we like to see. 

Kent – £780,000

Set on a quiet residential road across four floors, this spacious four-bed late Georgian townhouse in Deal offers the quirk factor out front with its unusual bow window and a little slice of tranquility out back with a private walled garden with stocked rose and herbaceous beds (views of which can be enjoyed from the free-standing bath on the second floor).
