Moving west…

Launceston, Cornwall

George Burnand

The brief

A large property near Southampton

The aim was to find a property within 40 minutes of Southampton from which the family could live in 3 separate dwellings situated in about 100 acres and from where they could set up and run a business.

How we helped

A collaborative approach

Having considered a number of properties across Hampshire, West Sussex and Dorset, our client noticed an interesting property in Cornwall. We decided to view it and one other to see if the west country could work for the family. We secured the farm in competition and proceeded to the contract stage. A number of issues needed to be satisfied – the Cornish location, a property with far from straight forward titles, chatels and an old septic tank!  With some help from Rick Steines, an excellent lawyer and a pragmatic approach from our client the property was bought.

George says

"I thoroughly enjoyed acting for our clients on this search. The purchase came from left field but ultimately the farm provides everything they were after, albeit a little off patch. The house is beautiful and the grounds stunning and I am very confident the family will be very happy in Cornwall."

Our clients say

"We had meetings with several buying agents but James and George really impressed us with their knowledge, contacts and understanding of the family brief. George certainly went the extra mile for us in all sense of the word, it was immense decision to move county’s, but it was made easier by having George with us every step of the way."
