Prime properties of North Yorkshire

Our York office has a boutique and niche feel, and we cover the upper end of the residential market in North Yorkshire, selling some of the finest property in the region. Our mission is to deliver optimum service and results for vendors and buyers alike by combining cutting edge marketing strategies with our knowledge of the market and our personable skills. The type of property we sell befits the Sotheby’s International Realty brand thus making our connected business perfect partners to work with each other.

York is seen as a property “hot spot” in the north of England. The city centre is abundant with wonderful architecture as well as cutting edge modern development and a vibrant lifestyle, making it a go-to destination. Connectivity to London is wonderful with direct trains taking less than 2 hours to travel between the two places which has resulted in the last year many people relocating from London to York simply for a better life work balance. From York, the journey takes 40 minutes to reach the North York Moors National Park or The Yorkshire Dales and in 1 hour you are at the coast.

York has also seen strong capital growth year-on-year and now is one of the most prime destinations to live in the north. It is also a very popular tourist destination so those looking to invest and generate income through holiday lets are doing so.

Live in UK’s only UNESCO World Heritage site

Christine Penny
Director Bath and South West Residential

When it comes to real estate in Bath, Christine Penny is the name that comes to mind. Spending 25 years in the property industry has allowed her to witness sweeping changes in the market. She joins UK Sotheby’s International Realty to bring Bath properties to the global market and expose listings to those who had never previously had access.

Bath is one of the most desirable places to live in the UK. The reasons why are many and varied; they include the city’s Roman heritage, Georgian architecture, great schools, stellar shopping and close links to London.

Highlights of Bath include:

Culture. The Theatre Royal (which has pre-west end productions), The Egg, (for inspiring young thespians), Festivals that include The Literary Festival, The Mozart Fest, Bath Boules Tournament and other current food and music fixtures.

Sports. Olympic standard sports facilities at Bath University, Premiership Rugby, County Cricket, Competitive Golf, Rowing Clubs, Bath Half Marathon and Horse Racing.

Recreation. Parks, the River Avon and Canal, Cycle Paths, Spas, Rural Countryside.

Bath is synonymous with hugely aspirational property. With its magnificent Georgian terraces, crescents and streets, as befits a city with World Heritage status, Bath possesses any number of enviable addresses and for that reason, it is not surprising how many famous people over the centuries have contributed talent and vision and choose and have chosen to make this their home. From Jane Austen, Beau Nash, John Wood and Ralph Allen to (current day) Nicolas Cage, Van Morrison, Peter Gabriel, Jane Seymour and John Cleese (to name a few).

Bath is a fantastic place for families. Offering great education opportunities, many family friendly attractions and a safe, inspiring environment for children to grow up in.

Quality schooling is one of Bath’s great attractions, and the reason why many parents relocate to the city from London and elsewhere in the UK and abroad. Prior Park College, King Edward’s School, Kingswood School, the Royal High School and Monkton Combe School are leading independents. Bath also offers some of the finest state education in the country at both primary and secondary level.

Facts: Bath does not have industry or head offices. Bath is not a victim of commerce. It does however rely on tourism.

The Roman Baths, City of Bath, Somerset

Countryside surrounding Bath: Beautiful countryside and any number of charming villages and towns surround Bath. Attractive counties such as Somerset, Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire are all in its immediate orbit.

The Mendip Hills and the Somerset levels offer a magical blend of history and legend. Overshadowed by its awesome Tor, Glastonbury is the Mendip district’s most famous town. While Wells, England’s smallest city, is dominated by its magnificent cathedral.

To the east of Bath is the rolling rural landscape of Wiltshire with its chalk horses and picture-postcard villages. Bradford on Avon is packed with specialist shops, art galleries and any number of desirable properties. Other Wiltshire villages of note include Corsham, Box and Castle Combe.

Bath has excellent transport links with mainline train service to London Paddington every 15 minutes and taking less than 90 minutes to reach central London. Bristol International Airport is a short drive away from the city centre and has flights to many European cities and holiday destinations.

The motorway network to the north of the city is also excellent with easy access to the M5 heading both south to Exeter and north to Birmingham and beyond. Junction 18 of the nearby M4 heads east towards London and west into Wales.

Bath is designated as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, it is the only city in the UK to have this honour bestowed upon it.

The city possesses a vibrant cultural scene, where the arts, food, fashion and sport all feature heavily.

Buy-to-Let | How to expand your property portfolio

Are you looking to expand your property portfolio? Find out how we can help!

What is UK Sotheby’s International Realty’s Invest Service ?

Andy Berthier MARLA
Head of Property Management – Residential Lettings

We source opportunities, and carry out the due diligence for clients wishing to invest in property. We help both people who are just starting their property journey and others who are looking to expand their existing property portfolio.

This involves supplying clients with detailed insights into how different types of properties or investment strategies work in the current market. We endeavour to help our investors to build up a pension, create an additional income steam or simply leave a legacy.

We can also help manage all types of property projects.

Why do we offer Invest Service?

Finding properties with real potential for a competitive price, is becoming increasingly difficult. As specialists in this area, we have the experience, skills, knowledge and network of connections to help.

How does Invest Service benefit landlords who are looking for new investment opportunities?

Existing landlords are often extremely busy, particularly if they are managing their own properties. By using our invest service, investors benefit from working with professional, reputable, passionate property people who know the local market and have access to great deals.

Sotheby’s UK Invest takes away the time to research your next opportunity.

Why do landlords choose to work with UK Sotheby’s International Realty to invest rather than go it alone?

The main reason they choose to work with us is because we save them time, hassle and in the long-term money.

In many cases we also let and manage our investors’ existing properties, so they have real confidence in our services.

What is the key difference between Invest Service and a Property Buyer?

The biggest and most important difference is that we use our own in-house team to let and manage the properties that have been sourced for investors. That way, we gain a deep understanding of how a property will perform over time. It means we can give a much more consistent and accurate overview of an investment rather than just focus on purchase prices and market statistics.

A property buyers experience is often limited to seeking out properties for purchase, without the long-term commitment to investors.

Let us source it. Renovate it. Find the tenant. Manage it.

You don’t have to wait to develop your portfolio in London or across the UK.

In fact, you shouldn’t wait.

With the UK Government about to levy the Foreign Buyer’s Tax, letting us source your next rental investment now would save you money.

The UK Stamp Duty Holiday has been extended, knowing that buyers are continuing to snap up properties in order to save on stamp duty. This means there’s a good amount of high quality properties on the market, and you don’t have to wade through the listings yourself.

Woodhill Lane, Shamley Green, Guildford, GU5 | Tanyard Farm is Richard Branson’s old family home

A wonderful four double bedroom family house nestling in around 1.4 acres that is tucked away in the ever popular village of Shamley Green.

Full of beautiful character, the house lends itself to home working and to families of all ages. With an in and out driveway behind substantial electric gates, there is both a good front garden and large rear. Rising to the rear, the garden is laid to lawn and is bordered by gardens, woodland and pastureland. There are several patios and seating areas and other buildings with lapsed planning permissions.

Mentioned within his autobiography, Tanyard Farm is Richard Branson’s old family home and has potential to expand as required with lapsed planning for additional buildings in the garden.

This four-bedroom home lends itself well to home working families. Located in the heart of Shamley Green, one of Surrey’s most popular villages, this is an area of pretty, conservation villages benefiting from the stunning Surrey Hills Area of Natural Beauty and is just over 5 miles to the south of Guildford. Tanyards Farm is just a short distance from the cricket green, village store, cafe/delicatessen and two local pubs.

Undoubtedly full of interesting history and in such an amazing location, tucked away, yet with a short stroll of 2 local pubs, this house really has it all. Awesome schools on the door step, shopping nearby and London only a short car/train journey away.

In his 1998 autobiography, Losing My Virginity, the Virgin founder mentions Tanyard Farm. It was where Branson’s first business ventures began with the planting of a Christmas tree farm within the 1.4 acre grounds. Branson had hoped to sell the trees but hadn’t counted on rabbits eating their way through the plantings before they were anywhere near fully grown.

Christmas Information | Opening Hours & Out of Hours Emergencies

As we are now within the winter months and approaching the festive holiday period, take the necessary precautions required to ensure that your home is safe and secure if you’re planning on leaving your property.

  1. During cold months, ensure your home is properly heated and ventilated in bathrooms and kitchens to prevent the build-up of condensation / mould.
  2. Outside taps need to be securely covered with insulation  to stop the tap / pipework from freezing. Freezing could result in a burst pipe damaging your home and contents.
  3. Planning on leaving for an extended period? Ensure the heating is left on sufficiently to prevent pipes bursting due to cold. Insurers recommend that boilers are left on a permanent setting no lower than 5 degrees to help prevent pipes from freezing.
  4. We would recommend that you arrange for a neighbour / friend to check the property should you be away for more than 2 days during the holiday period to ensure the landlords building Insurance and your own contents Insurance does not become void.
