Four additions to the Cotswold property market from £545,000 - £2.8million

“The Cotswolds ticks all the boxes: an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, good train and motorway links to London, excellent schools and some exceptional properties, so it will always be sought-after,” says Sam Butler of Butler Sherborn.

“I really cannot see demand for good country property abating.  Due to shortage of stock, we were only able satisfy 50% of those who registered with us in 2021, and we know many of these people are still looking.

“Covid has changed for good the way a lot of people work, and while some are having to return to their offices, many are now working remotely, or to a flexible hybrid office/home-working model.  I think people are placing greater emphasis on the quality of life, where they live, and also taking a much longer-term view.

“We saw an exceptional level of sales during the past 18 months which included some particularly strong private deals, and collectively this has helped firm-up prices and recover some of the ground lost since before Brexit.

“It is still unquestionably a sellers’ market, and providing you have found somewhere to move to, a very good time to sell.”
