Coastal properties

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 3:48 pm

A nation whose identity hinges upon its maritime heritage, Britain boasts a hugely varied coastline which stretches for over eleven thousand miles. From the drama of the Cornish cliffs to the calm stillness of the Norfolk Broads, the seascape of our island home traverses all moods and terrains.

Coastal home owners benefit not only from a beautiful view, but also access to a range of leisure opportunities not available elsewhere. Wales and the south-west offer world-class surfing beaches, the south coast hosts prestigious sailing events and the eastern coast shores provide the ideal resources and climate for keen anglers. In addition to these active pursuits, the British coastline also offers locations for complete relaxation, boasting some of the world’s favourite beaches.

Coastal properties for rent always prove popular with holidaymakers. Converting spare bedrooms into bed and breakfast accommodation or old boat houses and outbuildings into a guest annexe can be another source of additional extra income.

Mediterranean Moves

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 4:25 pm

Constructed on the site of the former Castle Mill lido, once a popular attraction of this part of Cheshire, One Castle Mill, which is situated midway between Wilmslow and Hale, has been designed in the style of a Mediterranean villa. The focal point of the house is an impressive curved sweeping staircase which leads onto the spacious reception areas. The master bedroom has access onto a spacious balcony with views of the gardens. There are three additional bedrooms and a separate self-contained annexe. The five and a half acres of grounds include a tennis court and border onto the River Bollin. Hale (three miles) and Wilmslow (four miles) both have mainline train stations and junction 6 of the M56 is just one and a half miles distant. One Castle Mill is on the market for £1,850,000 with our Hale office. For more information please click here.

Located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac just one mile from the centre of Lyme Regis in Dorset, Charisma enjoys sweeping views of the coast. The villa boasts its very own bar, an indoor swimming pool and six bedrooms, all of which open out onto a balcony with sea views. The property has the potential for two bedrooms to be contained within an integrated flat, with its own kitchen and sitting room. Lyme Regis has a range of interesting shops and restaurants and also boasts a beautiful sandy beach. There is a mainline railway station at Axminster, five miles away, where trains to London Waterloo take two hours and 45 minutes. Charisma is on the market for £1,250,000 with our Bridport office. For more information click here.

This late Regency villa is built in the Italianate style, creating a romantic continental enclave in the heart of the old town of Hastings, East Sussex. Belmont House has colour washed rendered elevations under a slate roof, with a covered balcony with scalloped edges and a south west elevation, resulting in a light and airy family house. The reception rooms are spacious, with high ceilings. There are five bedrooms, including a tower bedroom which benefits from fine views down the valley. Attached to the back of the house is a self-contained mews cottage with three bedrooms. The garden incorporates a lawn area, large decked terrace and a walled garden. The property is on the market for £895,000 with our Tunbridge Wells office. For more information click here.

Nash House is situated in the village of Lyminge in southeast Kent, within the beautiful Elham Valley. The large, split-level sitting room leads out onto a Mediterranean terrace which runs across the entire front of the property. An ideal spot for evening entertaining, this outdoor space enjoys glorious views over the gardens which are stocked with geraniums, roses, begonias and a wealth of under-planting giving all-year round colour. Folkestone, six miles away, offers a wealth of shopping and leisure facilities and with the M20 just three miles away, Nash House is well connected to the rest of the country. The property is on the market for £750,000 with our Canterbury office. For more information click here.

A garden where the grass is always greener at the Hampton Court Flower Show

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 2:35 pm

Jackson-Stops & Staff is sponsoring award-winning garden designer Marcus Green’s conceptual garden at the prestigious 2014 RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, which starts on 8 July.

Entitled ‘The Grass is Always Greener’ on stand IN8, Marcus’s striking showcase forms one part of a series of gardens featuring the seven deadly sins. After seeing off stiff competition from other entrants, Marcus was awarded the task of creating the ‘Envy’ garden, a vice long associated with the colour green.

“The Grass is Always Greener” will be brought to life through a flourishing wild meadow, set in an oak surround with the simplicity of free grasses and flowers forming the counterpart to what so many gardeners strive for and envy – a flawless, manicured green lawn. However, the only way to find such perfection takes the form of artificial grass which will be the centrepiece of the garden, encased in a bespoke Perspex box.

Marcus has established a reputation for designing gardens for private clients while also lecturing at the highly acclaimed Inchbald School of Design in London. He has also had success with his show gardens at several events, including winning silver at the RHS flower show at Tatton Park in 2010.

Each individual element of the garden has been carefully selected over the past 12 months, including delicate turf comprising frondy grass and wildflowers, a bespoke oak frame built In Welwyn and the green Perspex box which forms the showpiece of the garden.

Dawn Carritt, director of Jackson-Stops & Staff, said: “Jackson-Stops & Staff agents are expert at handling the sale of outstanding houses with beautifully manicured gardens and grounds. Marcus Green’s garden is a fresh take on a classic theme and we are very proud to be sponsoring it.”

The Hampton Court Palace Flower Show is the largest flower show in the world, run by the Royal Horticultural Society at Hampton Court Palace in southwest London. This year, the show runs from 8 – 13 July 2014.

Weekend retreats

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 3:21 pm

As confidence in the recovery of the property market grows, buyers are taking the opportunity to invest in a weekend retreat – to reap the benefits of a relaxing bolthole and a good long-term return on investing in bricks and mortar.

A second home provides a weekend oasis of calm, far removed from the weekday pressures of urban living. These ‘Friday-to-Monday homes’ allow for an occasional taste of a rural lifestyle, as opposed to a complete escape to the country, and so are best found within the villages and pockets of countryside most easily accessible from urban hubs. By purchasing a weekend retreat, buyers are able to broaden their range of hobbies, favourite haunts and social circle. For many, access to specific sporting facilities is the main consideration when defining a search area. Investing in a second home on the south coast allows maritime-minded Londoners to spend their weekend sailing the Solent. Becoming a part-time member of a local community is attractive to those who live in towns and cities, with the village pub at the heart, offering good food and drink and a place to meet. Second-home owners in areas such as the Cotswolds are able to enjoy some of the country’s finest dining in smart pubs and local restaurants. With a new home, there is the opportunity to develop a new circle of friends, with whom one can enjoy the country scene. Many weekenders are keen to buy near Arundel to enjoy the summer season at Cowdray Park and Goodwood.

A weekend bolthole also offers the opportunity to buy a home which provides a real contrast in style to your main home – a complete change of scene when you escape for a few days.

Through its network of offices in the county towns of the areas most popular with second home buyers, Jackson-Stops & Staff has unrivalled knowledge of Britain’s weekend retreat market, with a reach extending from North Wales to the south coast.
