Forget the iPad, what about the WAGPad?

With all the rumours, revalations and speculation surrounding a certain Premiership footballer right now, we thought we’d take a look at some of the WAGPads available for sale in Oxshott, Surrey.

Oxshott, Surrey, home to England and Chelsea footballer, John Terry and others.

“Oxshott, a leafy, pretty village in one of the richer parts of Surrey. It’s a collection of large houses and luxury estates surrounded by woods with a a flower shop, convenience store and small beautician’s at its centre. Some of the houses are extraordinarily grand — beautiful mansions set in acres of land with intimidating gates and staff working dutifully inside.”

Extract taken from Alison Kervin’s novel, Wags at the World Cup and article in The Times

We’ve named them WAGPads, as it seems it’s the WAGs who spend most of the their time in them.

Five To View: Holiday homes in Cornwall

The ten towns with the largest house price rises during the past decade were not big cities, gentrified suburbs or must-have market towns but rather seaside towns, research has revealed. And out of these salt-water havens with high house price rises, three out of the top four were in Cornwall.

Despite being one of Britain’s poorest counties,  Cornwall remains an intensely popular place to both retire, escape to the country or (more controversially) own a second home.

To highlight Cornwall’s appeal, here are five holiday homes overlooking the sea with cream tea qualities:

Properties facing the virtual hammer in February

Having just launched our new auction section on there is now (as we write) only 15 days to go until our first LIVE auction, so we’ve picked five properties that will be going under the virtual hammer.

Traditionally auctions have been for property investors and developers. However our auctions are designed for everyone including buyers, sellers and agents. Home hunters can now search properties for sale several weeks in advance at, arrange viewings with the relevant estate agents and then place online bids during the live four day auction period. At the end of the live period, the successful bidders will exchange contracts online.

Those selling property can speak to their estate agents about selling their property through our LIVE auctions – this could potentially speed up the transaction time and achieve the best possible price.

The first LIVE auction starts on February 11th at 12:00 pm and bidding runs for four days.

1) LONDON, Belgrave Road

Tenure: Leasehold

Description: A studio apartment situated in this very popular location known as the ‘Pimlico Grid’ within very easy reach of Pimlico and Victoria stations.

2) WIDNES, West Bank Street

Tenure: Leasehold

Description: A new-build 3 bedroom semi detached house in good condition.  Located on the Waterloo Place estate in the West Bank area of Widnes. The property has easy access to both the M62 and M56 motorways to Warrington and Liverpool.

3. BINGLEY, Byron Mews

Tenure: Freehold

Description: A two bedroom ground floor apartment situated in a popular and quiet area.

4) LANCASHIRE, Freckleton

Description: Individual and architecturally designed and detached residence. Offering extremely spacious, family sized accommodation over three floors and situated on  a quiet lane with panoramic views to the front and side.

5) LIVERPOOL, Canal View

January 27, 2010 at 10:17 AM 1 comment launches LIVE property auctions

We have just launched, what we think is, a very exciting and innovative new section to the website – LIVE online property auctions with our partner Real Estate Disposition Company (REDC).

From today, house hunters will be able to search properties for sale several weeks in advance at, arrange viewings with the relevant estate agents and then place online bids during the live four day auction period. At the end of the live period, the successful bidders will exchange contracts online.

The first online auction of approximately 150 homes will begin on February 11 and end on February 14. So, lots of time to get out and view the properties. Thereafter live online auctions will take place regularly running from Thursday afternoons to Sunday evenings.

We see online bidding as the future of property auctions not only for the buyer, but also for the seller. It really could change the way we buy or sell property.

For buyers – online bidding gives the buyer the chance to purchase property from motivated sellers in a simple, transparent way with certainty of outcome.

For sellers (through estate agents only) – ability to set a reserve price and market via auction as well as the traditional route to achieve the best sales outcome in terms of exposure, price achieved and speed of sale.

Not only is this a great opportunity for the buyer and seller but also for agents.

For estate agents – the auction provides a unique route to market for the agents and their clients resulting in greater exposure of the property and faster times to sale.

So make sure your agent has offered you this service, if not, ask them to contact us direct.

Finally, we’d love to hear your feedback – especially if you’re looking to take part in the bidding. Leave a comment below or come and find us on Twitter.

Conversions: Former Factories Now show homes for Sale

We’re going for an industrial theme this week, with a focus on homes in what were once dark, dingy and decidedly unlovely workplaces, but are now so light and airy former workers might be shocked to see the transformation.

The idea came from our recent blog about the piano factory loft conversion, an inspired design from the renowned architect, Piers Gough.

But would we be able to find five more factory conversions on the market?

Yes, we can – and with the added bonus that each original building produced a different type of goods in its industrial heyday.

Here are our top five factory conversions:

Price: £1,200,000


What? Former Shirt Factory – Southwark, London SE1

Price: £549,950


What? Former Horsehair factory – Glemsford, Suffolk

Price: £275,000


What? Former Spark Plug Factory – Olny, Buckinghamshire.
