Take 5… Waterside properties

Waterside locations were some of the highest in demand, especially those in picturesque locations. Buyers are naturally drawn to locations they have spent time in during past holidays: be that Salcombe, Chichester Harbour or the Norfolk coast.

However, the traditional secondary waterside locations have become increasingly sought after as people are drawn to the fresh air, open space and lifestyle that accompanies a waterside property.

Living by the water can have real benefits for the mind and the body. Lifestyle is one of the major motivators when moving home: those buying close to the coast, river, lake or loch are likely to pay more for certain aspects of waterside living, especially if that includes direct access to the water or a mooring.

From an Old School House in a tranquil riverside location to a contemporary home with extensive views from Hayling Island, we’ve selected five of the best properties that offer the much sought-after waterside lifestyle.
