Sotheby’s Realty London has announced the completion of two successful prime property sales.
The two prime period properties are found in central Bath, and have a combined value of £6.5m.
Christine Penny, a Bath based independent advisor, aided the move by giving instruction to Sotheby’s during the selling process.
Penny said: “When you buy a property in Bath, you are also buying a ‘lifestyle’ – education, communication, culture, sport and open space.”
Theela House, a six bedroom house in Lansdown, was bought by British buyers after its first viewing.
The house, which had not been on the market for 50 years, sold close to the guide price of £3.5m.
Following this, Sotheby’s was instructed on a £3.25m refurbished Georgian townhouse on Brock Street, and the sale was agreed after a second viewing.
Director and head of London residential at Sotheby’s, Guy Bradshaw, said: “Our clients were delighted with the marketing, global reach and ability to achieve a result within an unbelievably quick timeframe.
“The key messaging is that we handled this from London with a true local independent advisor, rather than a local agent in Bath.”
He added: “It demonstrates that local presence is not always what is required at certain price points and ‘best in class’ houses will sell regardless of the political climate.
“No agent can value what is special and rare – in this case two standout properties, offering quality lifestyle in the beautiful city of Bath.”
According to Zoopla, average property prices in Bath have risen 1.81% since August 2019.
