NY­ONE think­ing of sell­ing their home early in the New Year is be­ing urged by Chew­ton Rose to com­mence mar­ket­ing Christ­mas. Ti­mothy Ger­rard, part­ner at the Chilterns & Thames Val­ley branch in Ger­rards Cross, ex­plained that de­mand for property re­mains strong, de­spite the weather and the up­com­ing fes­tive sea­son.

“With the pace of mod­ern life, in­creased work­loads and fam­ily com­mit­ments, the Christ­mas pe­riod is an op­por­tu­nity for fam­i­lies plan­ning a move to sit down and care­fully look at their op­tions. Both Right­move. co.uk and Onthemar­ket.com re­port in­creased web traf­fic over the Christ­mas pe­riod.There­fore, it makes com­plete sense to make sure your property will be seen by buy­ers who are brows­ing the in­ter­net at home.

“One of the prop­er­ties that we are pre­dict­ing to be pop­u­lar is La­timer Cot­tage, a de­light­ful Grade II listed El­iz­a­bethan coun­try home, pos­i­tively burst­ing with Christ­mas spirit,” said Ti­mothy.

Ev­ery cor­ner of La­timer Cot­tage has been care­fully re­stored by the own­ers and ev­ery room re­tains its orig­i­nal char­ac­ter while also offering com­fort.

“We spent a couple of years work­ing on the house it­self and making it ab­so­lutely per­fect.We did the roof, electrics, plumb­ing and win­dows, and then we started con­cen­trat­ing on the rooms,” said the owner.“In ev­ery­thing we did, we en­sured that we con­formed to the stan­dards of English Her­itage – we brought in plas­ter that was suit­able for a house of this age and we used old-fash­ioned tech­niques.

“Where we had to re­place some­thing, we of­ten sal­vaged a piece of the ap­pro­pri­ate age.”

It took about five years to com­plete the restora­tion of the beau­ti­ful Grade II listed home.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion about La­timer Cot­tage, which is on the mar­ket for a guide price of £2,000,000, or to find out about listing your property with Chew­ton Rose, Right­move and OnTheMar­ket. com, please call The Chilterns & Thames Val­ley Branch on 01753 886177 from 8am to 10pm.
