In­to­duc­ing spa town’s new hotspot

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

BEECH Grove in Har­ro­gate is one of the town’s most re­cent hotspots, say Strutt and Parker.

A hand­ful of flats have been snapped up re­cently, some be­fore they have reached the open mar­ket. So what is the at­trac­tion?

“It is a com­bi­na­tion of fac­tors,” says Strutt and Parker’s Daniel Rigg. “Many flats are bought by down­siz­ers. We have just been through a deep re­ces­sion and in these times, own­ers of larger houses or farm­houses in the coun­try can feel the pinch, es­pe­cially if they are re­tired and the cash is not flow­ing so freely.

“The fi­nan­cial risk of hav­ing to re­pair the roof or up­date the boil­ers is not some­thing people want hang­ing over them – a flat on Beech Grove is a very at­trac­tive op­tion.”
