Property FOCUS Stunning contemporary family living in town

3 MANOR PARK is the epitome of a creative and stylish modernisation of a town bungalow – stunning interiors complement the copious space and light of the property which comprises nearly 1600 square feet of accommodation.

The main feature of the property is the open plan kitchen/breakfast room leading into the vaulted ceiling dining room with large roof lights and folding patio doors opening out to the rear courtyard garden – all fabulous entertaining space with a southerly aspect. The sitting room is a beautifully presented room with dual aspect windows to the front and side, affording excellent garden and countryside views, finished off with an open fire and glazed bi-folding doors through to the kitchen/breakfast room.

Meanwhile there are 4 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (1 en-suite), having potential for a third if required, with a further lower ground floor area, currently used as storage but which could be converted to provide either additional accommodation or possibly parking.

Public Notices Residential Lettings offer a safe harbour for the year ahead

MARKET COMMENT from Mark Hoskin, of Marchand Petit - in the Lettings market, where success is traditionally founded on stability, 2016 was defined by change and external uncertainty. Influenced mainly by modifications in the buy-to-let market which included, to name a few, stamp duty changes relating to second home ownership, tougher affordability on buy- to-let mortgage products and Brexit. Now we are in 2017, the headline change is George Osborne’s decision to cut mortgage interest tax relief in last year’s Summer Budget, which comes into force this April. However, the tax fall-out on landlords continues with changes on how wear and tear deductions can also be made. All of this means that becoming a landlord for the first time, or expanding a small portfolio, is more difficult and less appealing. Therefore, expect national buy-to-let mortgage transaction levels to reduce in 2017.

However, in choppy waters people head for safe harbours and at Marchand Petit across our offices in the South Hams, an area with high second home ownership levels, we have seen existing holiday home and second home owners shift their focus to residential lettings in larger numbers. As they look to take advantage of the benefits that a long-term tenant and income brings.

With interest rates set to stay at record lows for the immediate future, property remains an attractive option for any investor with capital and a medium to long term view for return. After a very successful 2016, the first months of this year show no sign of slowing. This view is obviously shared by investors and landlords locally. With demand in the key areas of the South Hams set to continue to outstrip supply, driven mainly by first time buyers staying in rental accommodation for longer periods as raising a deposit remains testing, or FTB’s wait on new homes incentives. Rent levels look set to remain steady and above the regional average. Marchand Petit offers a total property solution for home buyers in this lovely region of Devon. Across our multi-disciplined departments, our breadth and depth of experience at local level is second to none. We are the agent of choice for anyone in this area and we will work with you

every step of the way to ensure you find the tenant, or property, that matches your requirements. For further information please contact Marchand Petit’s Lettings office on 01548 855599. Alternatively visit the website at It has probably never been more difficult for first time buyers in the Kingsbridge area to buy property, yet with enough determination, and

sometimes a little help from the Bank of Mum and Dad some couples are still able to get their feet firmly on the property ladder.

An option available to some is shared ownership with a housing association. A scheme enabling buyers to own perhaps 50% of a home and pay rent for the remaining portion. This is usually only available to purchasers who have lived in Devon for a minimum of three years and not for second home owners or investors. Although there are hoops to jump through, the advantage of paying half the deposit of that required for a full purchase can make all the difference. Jean Goodman Ltd is currently marketing shared ownership properties for as little as £58,000.

For those determined and able to purchase a whole property there are still a few entry level homes in the area which represent great value. We are now marketing a ground floor apartment with a parking space right in the centre of Kingsbridge for just £99,000. This would make a comfortable and convenient first home or for only £114,000 we have a light and airy, and quite spacious one bedroom apartment which had recently been decorated and is ready to go. One rung up the price ladder and we have a delightful and roomy two bedroomed bungalow in a village location with a great kitchen and bathroom and a parking space for just £179,000
