Eighteen months of living with Covid has resulted in a massive surge in demand for properties with an annexe.
Amanda Ake of Stacks Property Search says, “Successive lockdowns have prompted families to re-organise their living arrangements, either moving home to be closer together, or increasingly, seeking a property with secondary (or even tertiary) accommodation.
“Annexes have always been in demand; buyers have looked for secondary accommodation that is flexible, serving as occasional space for relatives when and if required, or for guests, or if finances become tight as a source of income. Self-contained was non-negotiable, but size wasn’t necessarily a major issue. But today’s buyers are looking for something more substantial that will serve as long term and comfortable accommodation for the generally older but sometimes younger generation.”
