Owners putting a home on the market in Bucks this week can expect to wait just over four months before a sale is finalised, according to figures compiled by online analyst home.co.uk.

On Monday this week the typical time to clinch a deal was 135 days for the 4,117 properties put up for sale in the county in the previous 90 days.

The average asking price of the 8,330 homes on the books of estate agencies across Bucks was marginally over half a million - £502,260.

Pictured is a converted granary, one of the 868 local properties that have come on the market in the last fortnight.

It’s among a collection of converted farm buildings which once belonged to the Rothschild Estate in the village of Halton not far from Wendover.

The one-time grain stores, milking parlours, lambing sheds and barns are all over 100 years old. In 1992 they were transformed into 12 des res.

The courtyard development called The Lees is in an Area of Outstanding Beauty alongside the Wendover arm of the Grand Union Canal in Halton village.

The Granary at No 4 The Leys is for sale with a guide price of £695,000 through the Great Missenden office of Hamptons International.

It was originally built in the mid to late 1800s.

The interior is a fusion of rustic character and stylish contemporary.

The 20ft open plan kitchen has granite worktops and double doors onto the granary’s south facing private garden.

There’s a further set of double doors onto the garden in the 20ft sitting room. This room has windows on three sides, exposed beams and a wood burning stove. There’s also a study and downstairs cloakroom.

Upstairs are three bedrooms and two bathrooms including the master suite which includes a dressing room lined with built-in wardrobes.

The double garage has an attic with conversion potential. As a further attraction for buyers there’s space to park up to four cars in the gravel drive at the front of the granary.

According to home.co.uk, prices in the South East moved up 0.2 per cent between March and April but they’re lower than they were this time last year. ”Buyers and vendors are holding back due to increased fear of price falls and the Brexit debacle,” the analysts report. “This wait-and-see attitude has translated into both falling supply and falling demand.”
