An­nun­ci­ata Wal­ton finds out what’s new in the prop­erty world

AHOME on the wa­ter­front, par­tic­u­larly by the coast, is worth 62% more than those fur­ther in­land, say Hum­berts. The study, us­ing Land Registry fig­ures com­piled over the past two years, also shows that the North-east en­joys the high­est coastal pre­mi­ums (62%) and Wales the low­est (36%).

‘Rugged and charm­ing towns such as Scar­bor­ough and Whitby [above] are be­com­ing bou­tique bolt­holes,’ says Michael Cornish, Head of the Wa­ter­front and Coastal Depart­ment at Hum­berts. ‘De­sir­able restau­rants, prox­im­ity to the York­shire Moors and the steam rail­ways make the North-east a hit with south­ern­ers—at about four hours from London, the jour­ney time is no dif­fer­ent to that of Devon and Corn­wall and there is cer­tainly value to be found.’
