Bath housing market – post election update

Thursday, June 22, 2017

#bathhousingmarket #post-election The Bath market has slowed down in recent weeks with buyers seeming reluctant to commit.

Monday, March 20, 2017

As a Bath property search agent I regularly get asked by prospective buyers and friends what are the big attractions for the city.

Residents and visitors alike are spoilt for choice because not only is the festival... View Article


Relocating to Bath

Monday, July 18, 2016

Bath is a magical place to live and being England’s only world heritage city provides an atmosphere hard to find anywhere else.  Moving to Bath will open up opportunities to enjoy a fabulous lifestyle including some of the best concentration of high end shops. Having lived myself in London I believe Bath can compete easily with some of London’s famous shopping streets. But that of course is just the start, living in a beautiful city allows you to explore the quaint and... View Article

Relocating to the Country?

Tuesday, May 17, 2016

One rule of thumb that most people adhere to are the ‘five Ps’: there must be a pub, public transport, parish church, primary school and post office.  Quality of life does not, of course, depend simply on one’s individual satisfaction. The vibrancy of the local community, or lack of it, affects everyone.   Surveys have found that if money were no object then most of us would pack up our bags and head to the country, but would only want...

Tuesday, May 17, 2016

Do remember that re-thatching a listed property or property in a conservation area in a different style or thatching material will usually require listed building consent.
