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.
