The UK is home to a diverse range of properties, each with unique styles that reflect popular trends throughout history.
Whether it’s the rustic charm of a rural country cottage or the symmetry of a Georgian property that catches your eye, there is a style out there to suit everyone.
But which property is perfect for you?
New build homes, built around the 1990s feel spacious and well designed, and tend to focus on more energy efficient features, such as double glazing and practical central heating. These properties feel fresh and new, and usually benefit from off road parking and well contained gardens.
Usually found in the suburbs, Edwardian properties tend to have small front gardens and pretty front porches. Light and spacious, the rooms benefit from large windows and high ceilings, and fireplaces and light fittings have Art Nouveau influences.
Traditionally fireplaces take centre stage in several rooms, and the kitchen is located to the rear of the property. Rustic wooden floor boards feature throughout these terraces and tiles greet you in the hallway. Built before cars were common place, Victorian terraces don’t usually have private parking.
Rural detached cottage
Country cottages tend to be jam packed full of rustic charm; low ceilings, wooden beams and exposed bricks are a welcome feature throughout. Rural properties tend to sit in spacious detached plots with well-established gardens. You could even come across a thatched roof!
