Prime Perthshire Properties in 2019


It has been a fantastic year for sales of prime residential properties in Perthshire. Over the course of 2019, Rettie & Co.’s Town & Country team have sold seven properties over £1 million in Perthshire. This contrasts with the total number of £1m plus sales by all agents—a total of ten—over the last three years, the majority of which were sold in 2016.
