The hardest part of acquiring a dream home is finding it. Which is why we have recently set up our Unique Property Search service. With a nose for only the most extraordinary properties, and years of experience in the unique property market, we take the hard work out of your hunt for the perfect property. Whether you're looking for a coastal cottage, a country manor or even a fairytale castle, our personal, focused approach will help you find the right pad in the right location. Be it a business venture or a family home, we understand that finding the perfect property is about more than the number of rooms - it is about finding a perfectly situated gem of a house where you can create the lifestyle of your dreams.

Working independently and alongside local estate agents we are the eyes and the ears to the unique property market in the UK and overseas. Save time by letting us do the legwork, and avoid the costly hassle of travelling far and wide to view unsuitable properties. Here is a taster of what's new on our books at the moment:

An 11th Century Chateau surrounded by vineyards and complete with all modern conveniences
Where? Languedoc Roussillon, France

Imagine the epitome of French country living... the views, the wines, the solitude, the history. The Vineyard Chateau lies in foothills of the Pyrenees, part of the Languedoc wine region of Southern France

Extensively renovated over a 5-year period, this secluded retreat - only 25km from the walled city of Carcassone - is surrounded by vineyards and overlooks a lush valley. A modern, six-bedroomed interior boasts fine fabrics, handmade solid oak beds, huge fireplaces and leather sofas, all surrounded by the warm natural stone of the original structure. With a heated infinity pool, a walled vegetable garden and beautifully landscaped grounds, this is the perfect property for a business venture or simply for a luxurious family home.

A romantic hideaway house with two cottages, situated in an idyllic rural setting
Where? Liskeard, Cornwall

This trio of properties feature an abundance of rustic charm, from beamed ceilings, exposed stonework and expansive fireplaces, to details such as pargetting, hand-made windows and a dramatic natural spiral staircase created from an oak tree. 

In its 20-acres of well-manicured grounds and flower meadows, the property has its own natural rock swimming pool, spring-fed small lakes and a wooded stream. A conservatory and upper sunroom enjoy an abundance of natural light, and there's a roof garden and poolside patio for warmer days. As well as a large barn, garage, workshop, woodshed, attic store and garden shed, planning permission exists for a large chalet building and the property has several suitable areas for a heli-pad. Despite uninterrupted countryside views, far from being isolated, the house is a mere fifteen-minute drive from the market town of Liskeard.

A luxury B&B in France that was originally built as a wine store for the French Prince of Chenac
Where? Poitou Charentes, France

A successful B&B featured in the Michelin Red Guide, this prestigious bordelaise townhouse, featuring stone Fleur de Lys and columns, is set in a huge park with a beautiful lake and a pool backing onto sunflower fields. 

The unique architecture of The Wine House is home to designer interiors (that have been featured in several glossy magazines), original artwork, log fires, exposed beams and rare carpentry. Six of the nine magnificent bedrooms are en-suite, and the property is being sold inclusive of furniture. The Wine House is superbly located in the small port of St Seurin d'Uzet - a place not only famed for being the first place in Europe to produce caviar, but from the banks of the Gironde estuary it also faces some of the finest vineyards in the world.

Three family-sized homes plus a luxury B&B wing, situated in a beautiful region of southwest France
Where? Le Mériller Le Fleix, France

A successful 4-star rental business set in 15 acres of land, Le Meriller, once a working farm, is the oldest and largest property in Le Fleix. The three houses - a family house, a 17th century barn conversion with a swimming pool, and a 16th century part-converted barn currently - ooze character and charm, showcasing many of their original features. 

Outside, the landscaped garden has hundreds of specimen trees, shrubs, flowers, fruit trees and a well-established vegetable garden. The property is being sold fully furnished, and with a total of 33 rooms (and the option of completing the final barn), this is a unique business opportunity for someone wanting to start a new life in France. Last year the house was rented for 51 weeks and the barn was rented for 52 weeks. Both properties are booked until July 2008.
