Quoting James Greenwood, of Stacks Property Finders
The British village housing market is in a transition period, adds the buying agent James Greenwood, managing editor of Stacks Property Search. When it comes to having a shop, a pub and a community hall, “people still have a picture that’s 10 years out of date — but when they realise the facilities have gone, they come to terms with it”.
Greenwood insists that prices remain robust for good homes within commuting distance of London, even if facilities are scarce. His colleague Gideon Sumption, who is based in the West Country, says: “A village school isn’t as important as you might think. Parents with school-age children are used to being part-time taxi drivers and will do whatever driving is required to reach the right school. The catchment area is the only real criterion.”
And, thanks to the internet, you are never far from provisions, even in the shires. Tesco claims to be the first supermarket to offer same-day delivery across almost the whole country, using its store network to cover 99% of Britain.
