FIVE GREAT COTSWOLD CLASSICS NOW ON THE MARKET IN TIME FOR SPRING
from £475,000 to £2.85million with Butler Sherborn

“Spring is now well on its way here in the Cotswolds,” says Sam Butler of Butler Sherborn, “and our offices are all reporting a considerable uplift in activity.  While generally anticipated at this time of year, it is encouraging to buyers and sellers that so many great new properties across the price range are now coming onto the market.

“As we have been saying for a while, whatever the political machinations in Westminster or Brussels, life goes on, and there will always be those who need to move, to upsize or downsize for whatever reason, and these five new properties are testament to that.

“If you want to move this year, Spring is definitely the time to place your house on the market to give your property the optimum chance of selling.”

Note to editors:

The Cotswolds
The Cotswolds are located in the heart of England and within the counties of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Wiltshire.  It is the largest designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales, and very roughly starts to the east of Gloucester and Cheltenham in the west, runs up to just below Evesham in the north, includes parts of West Oxfordshire where Burford is known as the Gateway to the Cotswolds, and south to the Cotswold Water Park a few miles beyond Cirencester, the former Roman city and Capital of the Cotswolds.

With excellent road and rail communications - London, Bristol and Birmingham are all within an hour by train - the area has become popular with those moving out of the city or wanting second homes to escape at weekends.
