Lifestyle and Off-Grid Property in Scotland

Published on: 10th May 2021

One continued positive from the pandemic is its opening up of the markets – now that many of us can entertain working from home for some or all of the week the doer-upper, the beautiful property with stables and paddock or even the wonderful cottage off-grid can serve as your office and your ideal home. In early May international law firm Addleshaw Goddard released a report (read it here) on the Scottish economy, a full section being devoted to Homeworking. 

While the report does show that some companies are reporting negative impacts on productivity and on staff and client collaboration, many trends are here to stay for a while: decreasing city centre office footprints, the continued rise of software to promote working from home, and the importance of strong and resilient broadband. 

Since our inception, Robb Residential have been focused on such unique and notable sales, meaning we also know the importance of networks, be they literal transport ones or those fibre-optic lifelines that have meant so much in the last year. Many of our properties come with either space ready made for working from home, or with spare rooms, studies or outbuildings just begging to join the 21st century.  

Many more of our homes for sale come with ample gardens, and some surveys show that with the right, well-appointed garden office installed your property can enjoy a 5% to 15% boost in value. The right office can also function as a spare room, gym, or quiet sanctuary for family and guests to enjoy a glass of Crozes-Hermitage on a warm evening – your office can now be a lovely summer house, too. 

The Team at Robb Residential can help fulfil your post-pandemic lifestyle needs. We can offer properties by lochs, in rolling hills or those that come with a variety of sporting and outdoor lifestyle options. Although the market is buoyant, if you don’t see your current dream property listed please contact Robb Residential for a confidential chat, as we have many sellers about to bring their property  to market, and others looking to sell privately.
