Four Bedroom Home in “Best Place to Live”

12/06/2020

Location has never been more important and The Colony’s location could not be more idyllic, set in half an acre of garden with stunning rural views.

 

Unspoilt Scenery and Excellent Ammenities

This four bedroom character stone property is situated in the borderland of Wales and England, near Presteigne, voted one of the best places in the UK to live by readers of The Times.

Ludlow sales agent Scott Kemsley explains: The area really does have it all, unspoilt scenery and excellent amenities, including schools, independent shops and a lively sporting and social scene. The vibrant medieval market towns of Ludlow and Shrewsbury are within an easy commute as is the city of Hereford.

The sitting room, dining room and kitchen are all glazed to maximise the breath taking views.  The sitting room is a well-balanced and spacious room benefitting from a wood burning stove. The kitchen is a good size with Rayburn and country style units. A study, boot/cloakroom, store and utility complete the ground floor.

“The layout gives a feeling of light, space and versatility and there is opportunity for minor modernisation. Outside an integral garage offers more potential, while large gardens include a separate wild garden with pond and summerhouse. In all The Colony encapsulates idyllic living,” Scott concludes. Balfours are marketing with a guide price of £475,000, call Balfours Ludlow 01584 707100.

Meticulous Protocol Enables “New Normal” Viewing

11/06/2020

We are delighted that, where vendors are happy to, viewings are now progressing – albeit with stringent safety measures in place.

Balfours staff have meticulously drafted up viewing protocol which follows government guidelines to ensure that all personnel, vendors, prospective buyers and staff are kept as safe as possible. The new normal will include both minimising the number of people involved in and a declaration of good health, with no COVID-19 symptoms by all parties and those within their households.

Head of sales, Alistair Hilton explains: “We have literally examined every part of the viewing process in micro detail. Viewing protocol will include anti-bacterial cleaning of all items that might be touched, opening windows to boost ventilation prior to viewing, switching on lights and opening doors, so that the viewing is seamless and with no need to touch property fittings.

“We are also asking vendors to place anti-bacterial solution at the entrance so that on the way in and out everyone can hand sanitise. Any deep discussion will, where possible, take place outside the property, either in the garden, courtyard or other appropriate space. The two metre rule is a given and whether it is the property owner or Balfours staff who conduct the viewing full knowledge of the layout will ensure that buyers are kept at a safe distance throughout.

Alistair concludes: “We know that the property market is pent-up at this moment and there are people desperately keen to move on with their lives. However our first priority will remain the utmost safety of everyone involved in orchestrating property transactions.”  Read Balfours C-19 Property viewing/attendance guidelines.

Qualified, Experienced and with a Wealth of Local Knowledge

With Shropshire roots, Jackie has undertaken a raft of property related roles and ultimately Jackie established her own successful estate agency and lettings business in Bridgnorth. Following the sale of her business, Anslows, she is taking the role of senior lettings negotiator.

With FARLA and FNAEA, Fellow of both the Association of Residential Lettings Agents and the National Association of Estate Agents, to her name, Jackie reflects: “I have been in property for quite some year’s having achieved professional qualifications whilst employed as an area letting manager in the county. While I have worked nationally too, Shropshire is my home turf and so it is hugely satisfying to work with clients where I can offer extensive local letting knowledge.

“I am really looking forward to servicing the needs of Balfours clients and tenants providing the professional and personal service Balfours is known for. The current pandemic of Corvid 19 will make life much more challenging for us all but we will ensure we do everything within our power and the health guidance of the government to ensure clients’ needs are met.”
