The pie and mash shop isn’t the only unique property that has caught our interest recently.
In September, a £ 4.5million ‘Gothic’ house built on the grounds of a Victorian cemetery and featured on Great designs made the buzz on social networks.
Fans of the series took to Twitter to give their thoughts on one of the most unique versions in the series’ history, with some describing the episode as the “best. Great designs never”.
The project was certainly one of the strangest in the history of the series, with viewers marveling at the ‘gothic house’ being built in the cemetery, complete with a moat and water feature in chainmail.
In November, we fell in love with a cute little Styrofoam ‘Hobbit’ house covered in mud and cement, which was on sale for $ 220,000 (approx. £ 166,000).
The lovely one bedroom house looks straight out of the County, but is actually located in Marshfield, Vermont, USA.
And last September, we were in awe of an ordinary-looking house with a full-size skate park on the ground floor.
Meanwhile, a converted lighthouse perched on the edge of a cliff in Pembrokeshire has recently been marketed for just under £ 1million.
Converted to an eight bedroom house overlooking the Irish Sea and the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, it is just 15 miles from the Welsh town of Haverfordwest.
Small but perfectly formed houses also caught our attention.
From the Tardis-style house, which in parts is leaner than a London bus, on sale for just under £ 600,000, to the tiny detached house which measures only 4m by 4m and is considered to be one of Britain’s smallest detached houses.
Then there was the house considered to be the narrowest in London which went on sale last year for a whopping £ 1million.
The unusual property on Goldhawk Road in Shepherd’s Bush, West London, is just 5 feet 5 inches wide, but certainly makes up for its lack of width with five floors of chic interiors.
