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