This unique detached home enjoyed unprecedented interest, with a quick sale, presenting an ideal refurbishment project in a great Finchampstead location.

The property generated a huge amount of interest, with a number of potential buyers competing for ownership. 

In the Marketing department we could see the appeal; well-located on a tree-lined road which, at this time of year, is fringed with beautiful gold and rusting autumn colours, offering great road links to the M3, Camberley and Reading nearby, along with a great plot size.

Enquiries peaked at 50, with an impressive 29 viewings in less than a week. The first offer was received within just 24 hours of marketing and the sale agreed within a mere 10 days. Potential buyers were not only numerous, but also widely varied, ranging from first time buyers to builders, local residents to Londoners.

But what aspects of this property made it so popular amongst the buyers, and what does the future hold? Our Senior Client Manager, Paul, was enthusiastic to share the success story of this unique home. 

“The outstanding potential of this house was really obvious to buyers. Having not been updated for 30 or 40 years, the property was a blank canvas, meaning that you could do whatever you wanted with it, creating brand new accommodation with a sizeable plot.
At approximately 80/90ft, the rear garden is large, whilst also offering a sunny southerly aspect. The front driveway also extended about 40/50ft. Nine Mile Ride is naturally a popular location amongst buyers and it is easy to see why, with great commuting and such a pretty road.”

“We had many enquiries and the vendor wanted a quick sale, with so many potential buyers, the pricing was almost like an auction. This property was a prime example that if you want to buy a really special home, you need to be sale ready, so find your own buyer first.”

The future of this desirable property is in the hands of one lucky local couple, who look forward to moving in the New Year.
