5 Popular Properties on Boomin [September]

Here at Boomin HQ, we can see that the latest homes for sale have gone down a treat. And there’s plenty to love. With September kicking off new beginnings, the browsers of Boomin have welcomed in an assortment of goods. From rural Forgandenny (say that 10 times fast) to edgy Shoreditch and Cornwall where you can DIY, here’s a sampling of top properties that have been raising all those Boomin eyebrows.

Perth, Scotland
Estate Agent: Baird Lumsden

Country cottage | Accessible location | Woodland views

Let’s start at the top, shall we? This charming 2-bed chocolate box cottage in the heart of Forgandenny, Scotland is a wonderful way to have your own slice of nature. Overlooking a stunning woodland (image 15), generous gardens and easy access to countryside walks, mountain bike trails and top golf courses, you can enjoy greener pastures – literally and figuratively. The easy, one-storey layout with a sunken bedroom makes it a great choice for those looking for more simplistic living and at £225,000, it’s a steal. We can’t wait for the country dog walks, vegetable patches and village fetes. Bliss.

Shoreditch, London
Estate Agent: Hunters

Converted warehouse | Designed by FLARE Architects | 2 bedrooms

A warehouse conversion in the heart of Shoreditch is everything you’d expect it to be: a hipster haven. In this flat, character is bursting out of the seams. Paying homage to the textile factory it once was, there is exposed brickwork, a BENCA joinery kitchen, designer bathrooms, Kai lever taps (yup, we had to Google that one too) and Sonos play bars in each room. The Sky, Apple and temperature controls in every room are controlled by the NEST, making it not only a smart home, but one very easy to fall in love with.

Here, you can live out your trendy dream. With industrial features, retro styling and surrounded by a famously arty community, all you need is a moustache comb and an oat latte to seal the sale. That, and £1.3 million.

Harborne, Birmingham
Estate Agent: Hunters

4 bedrooms | Secluded garden | Great location

Set in highly desirable Harborne, this Victorian house is a beautiful rendition of how a family home can embrace period features. While we could gaze at the Gothic Revival exterior all day, we’ll move inside where there are fireplaces, stained glass windows, decorative floor tiling, an asterite sink, conservatory, four spacious bedrooms and a cellar with plenty of potential. At a reasonable £795,000, we can see why this house is highly viewed. When can we move in?

Whinfell, Kendal
Estate Agent: Thomson Hayton Winkley Estate Agents

Barn conversion | Stables, barn and outbuilding | 3 bedrooms

Don’t sleep on this Lakeland gem. This 3-bedroom barn conversion will take your breath away with the traditional slate and stone exterior. Step inside, and you’ll be wowed by unspoilt countryside views, incredible interior beam work, a feature fireplace and quaint timber doors.

The location is inarguably one of the best in the country. Pop into Kendal (to stock up on the market town’s eponymous Mint Cake), take a boat out on Windermere or simply explore all the land that comes with the property – there are 14 acres of it. With an enchanting woodland right outside your back door (image 25 for a taster) and the Lakeland fells nearby, this idyllic location is ideal for those ready to embrace a rural retreat.

St. Austell, Cornwall
Estate Agent: Humberts

Cottage with planning permission | 1.65 acres

With this listing, you’re going to need a lot of imagination. Technically, it’s a derelict cottage with crumbling walls set in an overgrown field. What it could be is a stunning 3-bed house with glass additions, a sunroom, rural views and a 1-bedroom annexe. There are 3D mock-ups of what the house could look like and we can confirm it is a masterpiece. The best part is planning permission has been approved, so you’re all set to break ground. The question is... are you up for the challenge?
