Shaun Ascough, MD of Sands Home Search congratulates Mike Browne on his purchase of The Tukal in Beaulieu
  


Background:

After having sold the Snow and Rock chain of stores he founded, Mike Browne had been looking for a prime water frontage property on the south coast of England in which to enjoy his early retirement.

Mike comments; "I had been monitoring the market for a suitable property on and off for a year and I had the feeling that the most sought after properties rarely come onto the open market."

In Oct 2004 he approached Sands Home Search to find and secure him a suitable property.

After meeting Shaun Ascough, Managing Director of Sands, it was agreed that the search was to focus on direct water frontage properties on the Beaulieu River and along the southern coast of the New Forest.

Case study:

As such prime water frontage properties rarely become available, Shaun suggested a more proactive approach which involved directly contacting all the owners of suitably located properties.

A handful of viewings took place with property owners who had responded to the discreet and direct approaches made by Sands and these were discussed with Mike Browne.

One stunning property (the "Tukal") was quickly identified which comprised a unique waterside country house set in 12 acres of magnificent mature gardens with direct frontage onto the Beaulieu River and benefiting from a private pontoon, slipway and jetty.

The property's suitability was discussed in detail and Shaun was able to provide impartial advice on market value and potential resale issues. "We would rather talk a client out of a purchase than let them buy the wrong property," Shaun comments.

Following a further series of viewings at the property and after considering all the advice received from Sands, Mike was confident in reaching a decision to purchase and duly instructed Sands to commence negotiations to secure the property.

After two weeks of detailed negotiations, terms were agreed in late November 2004 and exchange of contracts took place 17 days later.

Mike comments; "The ability of Sands Home Search to get the inside track on the property and seller's position enabled them to secure the property at a large reduction to asking price."

"I would not hesitate in recommending Sands Home Search."
