If you’ve been searching for your next home, you’ll know that the average asking price in Great Britain has continued to rise this year. Last month we saw the average price of a home reach £367,000.
But the types of property you can buy for this amount, or less, are anything but average. From terraced family homes with suntrap gardens, to historical hideaways brimming with unique character, here are just some of the amazing homes you can buy for less than the national average asking price.
Take a look at these homes currently for sale.
The page-turners’ paradise
With its pretty courtyard to the rear and impressive bay frontage, this Victorian three-bedroom home is found in a quiet Liverpool suburb. Take a favourite read to the bespoke ‘book nook’, relax in the roll-top bath, and watch the light flood in through the huge sash windows.
The charming country cottage
Found in the heart of the Cheshire village of Shocklach, this three-bedroom home dates back to the mid-19th century. Inside, there’s an atmospheric brick fireplace, chunky beams and original quarry tiles, plus there’s a pond in the garden.
A home nestled within a Scottish beauty spot
Set within an idyllic conservation area, this four-bedroom Inverness-shire home offers spellbinding views out over the local countryside, and there’s a river at the end of the garden. Put your wellies on in the charming stone-flagged boot room, and head out to work in this home’s potting shed and bothy.
The fishing village hideaway
This postcard-worthy cottage sits in the fishing village of Staithes in North Yorkshire.

The hidden-away garden
This East Lothian property has an open-plan ground floor, with lots of light coming courtesy of skylights.
