Unique bungalow shaped like a horseshow goes on sale for £975,000

You can now buy this unique, four-bedroom bungalow that’s shaped like a horseshoe for £975,000.

The property, in Friars Cliff, Christchurch, Dorset, was designed by award-winning architect firm Cheshire Robbins and built in 1980. 

Its current owners have lived at the property for eight years.

Due to its unusual shape, you could stand at one end of the bungalow and see the opposite end. 

According to Andy Denison, from estate agents Denisons, who are selling the property, the shape was likely used to ‘maximise the square footage on the plot without having to go to two storeys and also not losing that outdoor space.’

At 1,894 sq ft, the bungalow is the perfect alternative to a standard retirement bungalow.


It has four bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room, while the master bedroom benefits from built-in storage and an en-suite bathroom. 

It is also home to a large kitchen and dining room, a living room, a utility room, another reception room and even a sunroom.

Surrounded by trees, the very private property boasts floor to ceiling windows that look out onto the south-facing back garden.

Speaking of which, the Astroturf garden has a large decked area and gazebo for entertaining. 

The property also has solar panels, a front garden and a driveway with parking for multiple vehicles.


The beautiful property is just a walk away from the beach, too. 

Denison said: ‘It was designed by Gordon Robbins from Cheshire Robbins, who was always a bit creative with his designs.

‘I would imagine the shape was to maximise the square footage on the plot without having to go to two storeys and also not losing that outdoor space.

‘It’s been designed very cleverly, with the garden on the south side.’

He said the stylish home has already received a lot of interest. 

‘Not everybody wants to be in a standard retirement bungalow and I think this would appeal to families as well,’ he said. 

He added: ‘It’s a very unique way of living.’
