The Old Rectory at Mawgan in Meneage was originally part of the Trelowarren Estate, whose woodlands now provide its bucolic views. The current arrangement of this Georgian house near the Helford River makes it a genuine example of what agents like to call "versatile". There is a self-contained, two-bed garden apartment with French doors onto the terrace, and the owner uses the top floor, with its own secondary staircase, as an office suite - still leaving gracious living space with four beds on two floors.

There has been a mill on the site of Hewletts Mill, near Castle Cary, since the Domesday Book. While the wheel no longer produces flour or cider it still turns, with a frothing cascade of water, but purely for decorative purposes. The five-bedroom house is surrounded by water, but because mills were constructed with an eye to such matters, it does not, according to the owner, suffer from flooding. And it's got, says the agent, "all the toys" on its seven acres: heated swimming pool, tennis court, and two loose boxes, tack room and paddock for the horse-lover. Michael de Pelet, 01935 812 236,

The larger of the two Grantley Cottages in Wonersh, near Guildford, has three bedrooms, beams, an inglenook and off-street parking for two or three cars, depending on how careful a driver you are. Considerably cheaper at Pounds 235,000 - but also considerably smaller - is what the agent describes as a "diddy" second house, with the front door leading straight into the sitting room, and one proper bedroom and a tiny room, just big enough for a single bed, upstairs. If you wanted both, knocking through would be subject to listed buildings consent. Parry Jones, 01483 893 939

* London Pounds 1.65m

Despite the busy road that cuts it in half, Canonbury Square is still one of Islington's smartest Georgian enclaves - especially the northwest side where the handsome houses, such as No41, have big (for inner London) gardens, up to 90 ft long, with garages at the far end.

The owners of No41 have given the house's original Georgian proportions a decidedly modern makeover, with a sleek American

walnut kitchen and Philippe Starck bathroom fittings - a style that sits especially well in the double-aspect drawing room that occupies the entire first floor. Carlton, 020 7359 0000, www.

You could live within five minutes' walk of Hove promenade and combine your family home with a buy-to-let flat at 13 Sackville Road, where the lower ground floor has been converted into a self-contained, two-bedroom apartment. The main house, which bristles with well-maintained Victorian features - fireplaces, stained glass, cornices, dado rails - has five bedrooms and a "colonial style" verandah.

Isle of Arran Pounds 145,000

Catacol Farmhouse will, says the agent, be a residence of "unusual style and quality", though that's only "following renovation". Still, the views across Kilbrannan Sound and seven acres of garden and paddock might make up for that. Langley-Taylor, 0131 220 0576,

Gloucestershire Pounds 345,000

Once part of the Ampney Park estate, The Lodge in Ampney Crucis dates from the 18th century, when it must have been pretty bijou, as it was extended in the 1890s. Further scope to enlarge the three-bedroom house comes via planning permission to extend the ground floor to create a large kitchen/diner. The grounds contain a workshop, a garage and an area of woodland. Knight Frank, 01285 659 408,
