What makes a unique house sell quickly in the Lake District?

If you ask most people this question, they’ll answer “price” – if the price is low enough, then yes, the house will most likely sell quickly. But how do you sell a premium unique house quickly, for the value it is worth?

Fell View House – sold for £100k over asking price in four days.

Set in its own private wrap-around grounds, with fells to one side and lake to the other, we knew our marketing for Fell View House had to be truly remarkable and unique – and it is.

At AshdownJones, we create bespoke marketing for unique homes like yours. Marketing that exposes your property to your ideal buyer, and makes them fall in love with your home. This should be a decision originally made with the heart; not the head.

You may be surprised to know that we don’t charge anything for our bespoke brochures: they are simply part of the service we offer to owners of unique properties.

What would a bespoke brochure look like for your home? We have all different shapes and sizes – depending on the owner's wishes.

An initial consultation with us is complimentary, and is an opportunity for you to see how we sell unique homes like yours. This will be the time to ask any questions you may have.


Beautiful 'Brackenfield'

We have just sold a property near Troutbeck, that had previously been on the market for over three years. We put the price slightly up, dramatically changed the marketing – and sold it in 10 days. Here’s what the owners thought:

“Wow – this has got to be your biggest achievement to date! We believed in AshdownJones but having been on the market for so long previously, we expected it to take a lot longer! Thank you”

Mr and Mrs Stoney can now move south and will be able to watch their grandson play football every week.


Lets have a cup of tea (hopefully Yorkshire) and a chat? Call us on 015394 88811 or drop us an email on team@ashdownjones.co.uk and we hope to see you very soon.

Our fees: let's keep it simple

Whilst the other local agents choose not to publish their selling fees, we believe in absolute transparency. The downside for us is that the other agents may use this information to undercut our fees. The upside for you is that you know exactly what you will get with us.

We will only charge you a percentage fee on the successful sale of your property.

Our fee: 1.5% on selling (plus vat)
