Have you ever dreamed of renovating your own property like the hit show Old House New Home?

Well, Southampton has some hidden gems with bags of potential just waiting to be released. 

The wonder of renovation is that you can really let your imagination flow - whether you're after an ultra-contemporary pad to stand out in suburbia or a property as unique as you - practically nothing is off limits, subject to planning of course. 

Here are five properties you could flip in and around Southampton: 

Furze Road, Sholing, SO19


Daily Echo:

This three-bedroom semi-detached home on Furze Road is available for just £145,000.

In need of modernisation both internally and externally the property sits on a good-sized plot boasting a front and rear garden.

The old-school property has three good-sized bedrooms but desperately needs bringing into the 21st century.

Daily Echo:

Built in the late 1800s it is described as requiring updating and improvement.

The property has been well-looked after but needs the new owners to come in and transform the dated home. 

 It is offered on the market through auction.

Station Road, SO19


Daily Echo:

This five-bedroom detached house is on the market for a whopping £450,000.

Set over two floors, this property boasts well proportioned accommodation that has already been extended to the rear.

In the catchment area for some of Southampton's most 'excellent' schools this property is an ideal family home. 

Daily Echo:

A perfect opportunity for new buyers to come in and put their own stamp on this property, it is somewhat a blank canvas that could do with being brought into the current century.

The property has five good-sized bedrooms and three reception rooms. Outside there is a good sized garden, a garage and driveway.

Woolston,  SO19


Daily Echo:

This impressive detached home in Woolston has so much potential however it is currently being used as a HMO.

The stunning exterior facade of the home inspires a jaw dropping property full of quirky features and characterful elements. 

However, the reality of shared housing is that practicality wins and therefore many of the original elements of this home have been stripped away. 

Daily Echo:

With a sympathetic remodelling and a renovation both to the expansive gardens and the internal property could give new buyers a jaw-dropping family home. 

Built around 1850 this property is offered to the market with no onward chain.

Pine Walk, Chilworth, SO16


Daily Echo:

This gorgeous family home in Chilworth has been really well-loved and looked after by its current owners.

Similarly to a few of the other properties this home is ready to move straight into however there is so much more that could be done to elevate this home. 

The detached family home has five bedrooms, a self-contained annexe and a double garage. 

Daily Echo:

Dated and in need of a face lift this property could be renovated internally to bring a new lease of life to this 90s home. 

Sitting on a generous corner plot there is scope for extension, subject to relevant planning consents.

Daily Echo:

Located in Bitterne this deceptively spacious semi-detached house is available for just £300,000.

Light cosmetic work could bring this tired property out of its shell. 

The bright and airy home is in a highly sought after location, perfect for busy families who want to be closer to school and colleges.

Daily Echo:

With three large bedrooms, two reception rooms, large garen and off-road parking this property has a lot of scope for change.
