Country Life reports on a "red letter day" for Lillicrap Chilcott
Apr 2009

 "Financial meltdown now major incentive for buyers" writes Penny Churchill in Country Life magazine.

by Penny Churchill

It's ironic that the financial meltdown that hit the second-homes market for six at the end of last year should now be a major incentive for buyers to re-enter the fray. In Cornwall at least, the market for pretty coastal cottages is showing signs of a thaw. Truro-based Lillicrap Chilcott report the sale of picturesque, Grade II-listed Fern Cottage at Port Isaac better known to millions of TV viewers as Doc Martin’s home and surgery for around the £550,000 guide price. February 14 was another red-letter day for the Cornish agents, who exchanged contracts on six houses on that date, among them Treviso at Feock, a traditional waterfront cottage which sold for ‘well over £600,000’, against a guide price of £695,000.
