Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

SEC­OND home own­er­ship in Eng­land was at the sec­ond high­est level on record in 2010, ay Knight Frank.

They say de­mand for larger houses has risen strongly over the past 12 months as more fam­i­lies choose “gen­er­a­tional” hol­i­days, with grand­par­ents, chil­dren and grand­chil­dren staying in the same hol­i­day prop­erty. T

De­mand for hol­i­day lets in the South West was up 70 per cent in the early months of the year com­pared to the same pe­riod in 2010. Knight Frank re­search shows that the neigh­bour­hood with the most sec­ond homes are in Leys­down-on-Sea, on the Isle of Shep­pey in Kent, where chalets and hol­i­day homes make up nearly two-thirds of all houses in the area.
