UK’s weirdest homes: From house in the clouds to one with huge shark embedded in roof

Inspired by the stripey ‘beach hut’ house in Kensington, here are some of the oddest buildings on the shores

  1. Headington shark house: You wouldn’t want a leakThe ‘beach hut’ house in Kensington made headlines after neighbours complainedand forced the owner to repaint it.
  2. Just like Spongebob Squarepants, you too could live in a pineapple, albeit on land and not under the sea.A result of the aristocracy showing off architectural exotic fruit in the 18th century, the Pineapple House shows just how well-off the owner is.The property is available to rent from the Landmark Trust, so this could be your next holiday destination – especially if you like pineapples!
  3. A house that Mr Creosote would struggle to live in, this thin house is actually more akin to the TARDIS.Situated at Thurloe Square – another entry for Kensington – the house is deceptively large, with viewing angles making the property appear to be almost uninhabitable.Thanks to an adjacent railway line, the house is actually triangular in shape.
  4. Not one for those afraid of heights, the house in the clouds, in Suffolk, is a converted water tank.It was turned into a home after mains water supply was introduced to the area in the 1970s.Just like the pineapple house, you too can rent this property for your holidays – just remember to pack a grappling hook and parachute for easy entry and exit
