Cotswolds country home on the market for £2.65m

Estate agents are reporting a surge of interest in rural properties after the Covid lockdown, as reported on Punchline yesterday.

And one property in the Cotswolds that's been attracting particular interest is Quenington House in the village of Quenington, near Cirencester, which is on the market for a cool £2.65m.

The Grade II-listed country home near to the 'Capital of the Cotswolds' is being sold by Butler Sherborn.

Dating from the 1800s with later extensions, the accommodation includes an adjoining barn which has a vaulted kitchen.

The mature gardens, which include a grass tennis court, and grounds amount to 3.28 acres, unusual for a house located in the heart of the village.

Sam Butler of Butler Sherborn said: "Things have really taken off since lockdown, and there is a general sense of optimism here in the Cotswolds."

"We recently agreed the sale of a building plot in Chedworth that sold within four days of coming to market, while another property had over 55 viewings in two weeks!"

Overall viewings for the firm are up 53% (June & July 2020 vs June & July 2019), while people registering for property details are up 215% over the same period.

Mr Butler said that everyone involved in the industry has been 'flat out' recently. After 18 months of uncertainty over Brexit and lockdown, people were now looking for a better quality of life and looking to move out of London and the conurbations to the countryside.

"After lockdown, the interest being shown in country properties isn't just a flash in the pan," he added.

Mr Butler said he suspected there may be a dip in the market in the winter but the reality was that buyers were still looking to move to the country.
