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.

Landlord Advice | Virtual Tours are a Necessity

Make your property viewable 24-hours a day!

Like many industries over the last 12 months, especially one that has been built on face-to-face meetings, real estate has had to adapt to survive and utilizing the latest technology has become essential for us to succeed in the new normal.

In particular and now more than ever as we find ourselves in the midst of a 3rd lockdown, virtual reality (VR) is one of the most effective tools available and here’s why:

For tours, VR can provide a 360-degree view of a property, 3D floor plans, and an interactive experience of the location.

Prospective buyers and renters can view properties directly from devices like computers, tablets, and smartphones anywhere in the world.

VR tours can help prospective applicants immediately envision themselves in the home – it allows people to explore a property in detail and to actively engage with what they see in their own time.

  • People don’t have to physically see the property to be convinced to make an offer.
  • VR allows estate agents to have a 24/7 open house, with no restrictions on viewings – ultimately maximizing your exposure!

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in both an aversion to human contact where possible and increased familiarity with digital tools. When buying or renting a house, people are therefore better prepared to complete the whole process online and VR makes this how process much more transparent, as buyers/renters are fully aware of the condition, size, and location of the home from the very start.

As an industry leader, we have fully embraced the use of VR and see this becoming an integral part of our industry, even after the pandemic is behind us. With restrictions across the capital likely to strengthen over the coming weeks, maybe days, it is essential that you are best prepared for what lies ahead and while estate agents can still show property for now, there is every possibility this might change. If agents aren’t able to show property and applicants can only view properties online then without a proper VR tour available, there is every possibility you could find yourself with a vacant property and no income.

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.

On 8th July, the government announced that there will be a Stamp Duty holiday until 31st March 2021

The major news is that Chancellor Rishi Sunak has now raised the minimum Stamp Duty threshold to £500,000; where previously Stamp Duty was paid on homes sold for at least £125,000, for first time buyers, or on properties sold for more than £300,000.

However for those in the upper real estate market…things get a bit cloudier. Understandably, each case and situation is different so we encourage you to call us to find out how much you will be saving under the new rules.

Variables include whether or not you’re buying a second home, an investment, and the various price ranges above £500,000.

The good news for buyers:

You could save thousands.

The good news for sellers:

Buyers are now more actively looking to purchase.

Call us to find out how much you will  benefit from the Stamp Duty changes
