The Luxury Housing Market of Harrogate
15th February 2019 posted in Property News
Harrogate is one of the most sought-after places to live in Yorkshire.
With beautiful scenery, excellent schools and parks, and luxurious properties - those who can afford to live in Harrogate often choose to.
Lots of surveys point to this amazing town being one of the happiest places to live in the country.
And it’s easy to see why.
It may be expensive, but we consider it to be worth every penny. And besides, not every property is completely unaffordable - there are more modest houses on the market.
If you’ve thought about moving to Harrogate, we’d highly recommend it. Allow us to propose why it’s such a fantastic place to live.
Harrogate - What’s the Area Like?
If you live in Yorkshire, or even somewhere a little further afield, you’ve definitely heard of what a great place Harrogate is.
It has a reputation for a reason.
With a bustling town centre, surrounded by wonderful countryside, it’s an amazing way of life for its 157,000 residents.
And you could join them!
There are lots of thriving local businesses. You might come across the odd chain restaurant or coffee shop, but they’re predominantly independently-owned.
If you prefer this sort of life to one in a big city, with lots of noise and busy shopping centres, then Harrogate could be the place for you.
Types of Luxury Properties in Harrogate
When we say luxury in Harrogate, we mean luxury.
It’s not uncommon to come across a multi-million pound house, and you’ll certainly get your money’s worth.
The best and most prestigious properties are detached, feature lots of land, and generally offer the residents a bit of privacy.
That means off road parking, often with a gate to ensure only the owners can get in and out as they wish.
You can expect to find houses with at least four bedrooms, but this number can go as high as six, seven, or even eight!
And garages are common too, so vehicles can be kept out of sight.
One major benefit to these types of houses is the stunning garden space. You’ll experience the very best of summer right in your own home.
How Much Do Luxury Houses in Harrogate Cost?
If you want the best of the best, it’s going to set you back a fair bit.
As mentioned, homes can go for upwards of £1 million. And even further, if it’s truly one-of-a-kind.
But we’ve seen five-bedroom detached houses go for £600,000 in the past, and if you’re happy with a semi-detached property (which are often equally gorgeous), you can go even lower.
