South-east period house is the ideal UK home

A period house located in the south of the country is the ideal investment option for the majority of Brits, a new study into the perfect home has found.

Asking UK buyers what they would be looking for when heading to an estate agent if money was no barrier, PrimeLocation discovered that a detached home in the south-east of England would be most desirable.

In the last year, the value of rural homes has fallen by 5.1 per cent, but the report found that this has not dampened the love for the idyllic countryside retreats among British buyers.

He added that peace and quiet still outstrip vibrant city life in the eyes of many across the UK.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801558735-ADNFCR
