London properties with unique characteristics

London has one of the most unique property markets in the world. With an amazing array of different housing stock, including properties from a variety of historic periods, there are endless choices when it comes to making a property investment in the capital. From family homes to luxury apartments to unusual and quirky properties, there is something to suit every investor.

Thanks to the innovation of local architects, many London properties feature unique characteristics you won’t find anywhere else. One example of this is a home in Shoreditch which was recently put on the market with an asking price of £1.75 million. The freehold dates from the 17th century and has 1,400 square feet of living space across four levels, including four bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are two balconies on the upper floor and a small amount of outdoor space. It is situated in a private gated yard, a short distance from Spitalfields Market, Brick Lane and a multitude of bars and shops.

Besides its fashionable location and historic charm, the property has a very unique characteristic – there is a deep well beneath the kitchen, which has been covered with a transparent glass floor. This well was formerly used to supply water for the area, but is no longer in use. This is something that is sure to divide opinion amongst potential buyers.

If you are thinking about making an investment in a London property, it is important to consider what will appeal to your prospective market. In a sought after area such as Shoreditch, this property is likely to attract many buyers who are looking for an unusual home with a real talking point. In many other areas, it may be more advisable to invest in properties which will have a wider appeal.
