As a new decade starts, it’s time to reflect on a successful 2019. A year that started with political uncertainty and ended with a landslide general election result. Throughout that time we’ve continued to see excellent results in the property markets. With an end to the uncertainty in sight, 2020 promises to be an exciting year.
In this series of posts, we’ll look back at our top properties, social media posts and blog articles from 2019.
In part one, we looked at our most popular social media posts of 2019 and now it’s time to bring you our most viewed properties from last year…
Top 5 Properties 2019
We’ve been fortunate to be able to market some beautiful properties throughout East Anglia in 2019. These five were the most viewed on our website over the past 12 months…
5. Folley Road, Hundon
An exceptional unlisted 17th Century country home, this 6 bedroom property once belonged to WH Smith of stationery fame. With original period features including heavy exposed oak timbers and working fireplaces complemented by tastefully presented modern finishes, all surrounded by mature grounds incorporating formal gardens, 2 ponds, paddocks and a range of useful outbuildings this property is worth its position as the fifth most viewed property of 2019.
4. Isleham, Cambridgeshire
Wonderfully presented and particularly spacious, this four bedroom detached home boasts a favourable position with far reaching views across open countryside. Presented to a fantastic standard with each room boasting a light and spacious feel, this property was the fourth most viewed on our website last year.
3. Stanningfield, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk
Located centrally within the popular Suffolk village of Stanningfield and set well back from the road overlooking the village green, this charming Grade II Listed detached, thatched cottage boasts a wealth of period features, including exposed timbers, Inglenook fireplaces and Suffolk latched doors. These period features helped make this the third most viewed on our website last year.
2. Freckenham, Suffolk
Measuring in excess of 3,800 sq.ft, this breathtakingly beautiful and abundantly spacious property boasts stunning grounds and spacious rooms. Forming part of Freckenham House, which is a large period residence and was once home to the late Queen mothers lady in waiting, the property enjoys a captivating history with Edwardian architecture and charm throughout.
1. Culford, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk
Certainly the most unusual property on this list, it’s easy to see why it was the most viewed on our website in 2019.
Believed to date from 1890, The Water Tower is a fantastic example of Victorian architecture. Designed by reputable architect William Young and the cast iron tank by H. Young & Co. Engineers of Pimlico, London (who also produced the sphinxes at Cleopatra’s Needle), the structure is steeped in history yet, having been converted in 2010 now makes for an enviable modern residential home with gas fired underfloor heating throughout and finished to a high specification.
