Eyam Dale House in the Peak District

Eyam Dale House in the Derbyshire Peak District is being undertaken by Provesta.

Nestled at the centre the famous 'plague village' of Eyam the site extends to over seven acres of landscaped grounds, gardens, grazing and woodland with amazing 360 degree views from the ridge.

Eyam Dale House itself operated as a nursing home until recently and remains in tremendous condition. In addition to the main house there is a barn, various outbuildings and two recently renovated cottages.

We are now looking at alternative uses that will complement the village and the property.

RICS report steady house price growth

The RICS agent survey for October reports that house prices have risen once again.

Despite the plunges in the early part of the year, since the reversal in July 2009 the has been steady growth albeit within a quiet market.

Instructions have risen as vendors return to the market and this steady increase in supply should see the rises kept to modest levels in the near future as the demand and supply move closer together. Once again London sees the biggest gains but the rest of the UK also appears to be gaining confidence as home buyers return.

It seems that the low part of the market was seen around February so anyone making a transaction then can feel pleased with themselves for the time being. For now a mood of cautious optimism seems to be in the air.
