Seven houses with sea views - for under £100,000

Because we do like to be beside the seaside


The sea view from the Rothesay flat

When the weather's as lovely as it's been for the last week or two, a bank holiday sends people flocking to the coast.

And while a towel and the picnic on the beach are all very well, it's hard not to envy the permanent residents, or even those with a holiday home.

You might think that a home with a sea view is out of your range. But HouseSimple has trawled through the UK's current listings and discovered that you don't have to be a multi-millionaire to enjoy a multi-million-pound view.

Here are seven properties for under £100,000 with panoramic sea views.

Dunoon, Scotland: £70,000

The view from the flat

This two-bedroom second-floor flat has lovely views across the River Clyde and out to sea from its large, bright living room. It's in great condition, and ready to move into.

South Shields, Tyne and Wear: £79,950

The sea view

This one-bedroom ground floor flat even has a large garden - but it's the view to the front that will appeal. You'll even be able to watch the Great North Run from your windows.

Cleveleys, Lancashire: £84,950

The sea view from the flat

Just a couple of miles from Blackpool, this two-bedroom flat looks across the promenade to the sea. It has private parking and under-floor heating for those chilly winter months.

Morecambe, Lancashire: £84,950

The Morecambe flat

The view from this two-bed flat encompasses Morecambe Bay, the promenade and the Lakeland Fells - the current owner describes it as 'quite mesmerising'.

Rothesay, Isle of Bute: £85,000

The attractive Rothesay building

Big enough for the whole family, this four-bed flat takes up the whole top floor of this attractive building. Light and bright, it looks out over Rothesay Bay.

Swansea, Wales: £87,500

The view across Swansea

You get a whole house for your money in Swansea, with a small garden at the rear - but it's from the front that you can survey the city below.

Lowestoft, Suffolk: £99,950

The Lowestoft building

This gorgeous two-bedroom flat needs a bit of work - but it'll certainly be worth it for the view. The rooms are a good size, and there's a communal garden at the back.
