Spring is sprung - it's time to start nesting

  The seasonal search hots up at this time of year. Here we highlight homes with a connection to Easter - eggs, crosses and Passion Plays.

Headland Way, Haconby, Lincolnshire £465,000

Haconby is a small village with two places of worship. The tiny Baptist church was intended to seat 100 people but the builders in 1867 got the dimensions wrong and made it too narrow. Two balconies were installed to increase the seating and these are so close together you can shake hands across the gap. The village church with its tall spire, is St Andrews, and right next door is this five-bedroom barn conversion. Call Winkworth?s Bourne office 01778 392807

Grove Park Gardens, Chiswick, London W4 £8,500,000

The magnificent entrance hall in this enormous house is topped by a stunning, stained-glass domed rooflight. Living with your very own oversize Faberge egg is just one bonus in this opulent property close to the Thames. It has ten bedrooms, six vast reception rooms and staff quarters. There?s also an indoor pool complex. Call Winkworth?s Chiswick office on 020 8994 7096

Mayfield Road, London N8 £415,000

This one-bedroom flat in a converted church gives you your own garden and a parking space. Bohemian Crouch End is popular with young couples who love the cafe culture and arty vibe. Gail?s artisan bakery has sweet and spicy hot cross buns, perfect for a lazy Sunday brunch. What?s not to like? Call Winkworth?s Crouch End office on 020 8342 9999

Gy, Switzerland £4,972,650

Or you could go the whole hog and move to the home of fine chocolate. This villa at Gy in the Swiss canton of Geneva is less than five miles from the Farvager chocolate factory (booking necessary). The property has six bedrooms, large reception rooms, a grand staircase and a wine cellar. There?s also an outdoor pool to work off all the calories. Call Winkworth?s international sales on 020 7870 7181

High Street, Lewes, East Sussex £595,000

The Lewes Passion Play is an event that draws in churchgoers and non-religious townsfolk alike. The action takes place all over the town, retelling the story of Easter. At the very heart of this historic community is a terraced cottage for sale on the High Street. It has four bedrooms and plenty of original features but with a contemporary open-plan living area, streamlined kitchen and neutral decor. Call Winkworth?s Lewes office on 01273 471471

Market Place, Folkingham, Lincolnshire £149,950

Living next door to a chocolatier must be everybody?s dream. In Folkingham?s Market Place is Hansen?s Chocolate House. Here, Jan Hansen produces his innovative artisan flavours, handing out free samples of his latest creation to gauge its potential popularity. His 7ft Easter egg has to be seen to be believed. You could be his neighbour if you buy this three bedroom semi-detached cottage. Call Winkworth?s Bourne office on 01778 392807

Wakefield Road, Richmond upon Thames £450,000

Chocolatier William Curley has a dessert bar in Belgravia, where you can have a five-course chocolate splurge, but his boutique shop in Richmond is a little more restrained. Five minutes? walk away is this modern apartment in a gated development. It has one bedroom and a sleek, open-plan living area, plus off-road parking. Call Winkworth?s Richmond office on 020 8940 9986

Main Street, Kirkby Green, Lincolnshire £310,000

The name Kirkby is derived from the Danish meaning ?old cross?. Holy Cross, the village church, dates back to the thirteenth century in parts. Separated from the churchyard by just a low stone wall, this modern detached house has four bedrooms, two with ensuites. There is plenty of off-street parking and a double garage. Call Winkworth?s Sleaford office on 01529 303377

Southtown, Kenton, Exeter £599,995

Situated on the edge of the Powderham Castle estate, overlooking the deer park, this four bedroom house is ideally placed for children to attend the Easter chocolate and candy fortnight there. If this is altogether too sweet for your taste, Exeter plays host every year to a Walk of Witness through the street, culminating in the Passion Play. All these Easter activities will be on your doorstep if you buy this spacious property. Call Winkworth?s Exeter office on 01392 271177
