The Property List

Concluding on Five this week is the series that provides a rundown of the finest places to live in Britain. Using up-to-the-minute industry knowledge, each show pinpoints the ten locations that best meet a certain requirement, be it value for money, village life or proximity to the sea. The series is co-presented by lifestyle and property expert Melissa Porter (‘I Own Britain’s Best Home’) and home-renovation specialist Ian Blandford. The last programme focuses on the ten best locations to buy period property.

Each instalment of the Property List presents a countdown of the best places to either buy or build a home in Britain. A different theme is covered in each programme, from sunny coastal idylls to cosy village communities.

Every location featured in the countdown has been thoroughly researched against certain criteria, including property prices and employment rates, as well as the state of the local economy and the quality of life in the area. Properties in all price brackets and regions will be highlighted in the top ten – so there is something for every budget. While property on the continent is perceived to be better value for money, this series encourages buyers to look closer to home, and demonstrates that the dream may well be within arm’s reach.

In the final instalment of the series, Melissa and Ian travel the length and breadth of the country in search of ten places to buy a perfect period property – whether it is a Georgian terrace, a Tudor mansion or an Elizabethan cottage. From the Regency splendour of Brighton to the medieval homes of York, Melissa and Ian leave no stone unturned in their hunt for property with real history and character.

Their journey takes in the famous Georgian crescents of Bath; the charming Surrey town of Godalming; and the market town of Ludlow in the Welsh Marches, which boasts over 500 listed properties. Other destinations include the exquisite spa town of Cheltenham, blessed with sweeping Regency terraces, elegant villas and tree-lined streets; and Chester, a town notable for the unusual two-tiered shopping streets of its medieval centre.

Melissa and Ian explain just what it is about these locations that make them superb places to buy in 2008 – whether it is low crime rates, excellent schools, good transport links, decent employment prospects or great views. The Property List has done all the hard, timeconsuming background work so the viewers do not have to.

Many people dream of a way of life that is becoming ever more elusive in the modern world: a life in a chocolate-box village with a cordial publican who knows every local’s tipple; a wide village green where kids can play; little traffic except for the odd tractor; clean, fresh air; good schools; and a close-knit community. While villages like this are hard to find in Britain, they do still exist.

In selecting the finalists, criteria such as crime rates, schools, climate and transport links have all been taken into consideration. And it is not only those with a spare million or two in their back pockets who can hope to secure this lifestyle – Melissa and Ian hunt down a countryside cottage for every budget.

The opening episode lists the ten best places to buy coastal property. In the last 18 months, seaside areas have seen the biggest increase in migration in the country. The coastal market has been buoyed by an influx of city-dwellers desperate to grab a slice of land with a sea breeze, while newspapers gleefully report that house prices are higher in parts of Cornwall than they are in Central London. But where are the best places to be beside the sea, and where can buyers get the best value for their money?
