IN SEARCH OF THE SIM­PLE LIFE

The Daily Telegraph - Property - - Huntergath­erers -

Look for a prop­erty that sits com­fort­ably in its own plot, prefer­ably sur­rounded on all sides by private gar­den/land.

Don’t as­sume you have to com­pro­mise on out­side space – it is pos­si­ble to find smaller prop­er­ties with larger plots. Avoid any­thing that looks like it has been over-ex­tended.

If a house doesn’t have a wow­fac­tor in terms of size, look for other el­e­ments that will make an im­pact; view, ar­chi­tec­ture, or a spec­tac­u­lar liv­ing space.

Look for flex­i­bil­ity; the pos­si­bil­ity to ex­tend the prop­erty, con­vert sec­ondary build­ings, or build a stu­dio, of­fice or play­room in the gar­den. Don’t com­pro­mise on lo­ca­tion. For more ad­vice, con­tact Stacks Prop­erty Search and Ac­qui­si­tion: 01594 842880; www.stacks.co.uk
