Fancy living somewhere that little bit different? While many play it safe, for some, an irresistible home means something a touch more unique and individual.

Live in a time warp – Mildenhall Road, E5 £1,200,000
This beautiful late Victorian house has had no expense spared in its loving and meticulous restoration but…there’s a twist. While behind many Victorian terrace façades, a contemporary interior is the norm, this terraced house has been transformed to resemble an interwar time capsule. So much so that The Times has dubbed it “Hackney’s most nostalgic home!”
