An agent has defended his decision to put 142 photographs of a property on its Rightmove listing after an unexpected criticism from national newspapers.
The Independent and the Daily Telegraph hint that displaying so many images for a £2.899m property at Lindrick Common near Worksop might be regarded as desperate; they say the total makes it the Rightmove listing with the most photographs - ever.
But Paul Blackburn, director of Blenheim Park Estates, says his agency tries to use the maximum number of images on all of its stock when listed online.
“Blenheim Park Estates just handles the top end of the market and is a bespoke estate agency business. The key thing is showing the potential purchasers the properties in their entirety rather than just giving them a snapshot” he tells the paper.
“We try and sell the properties through pictures. It’s how we operate. We are not desperate, we are keen.”
He goes on to describe the five bed property - which has an indoor swimming pool, a bar, games and entertainment suite, a cinema, gym, and eight acres of grounds including landscaped gardens with sun terraces - like this: “It’s a superb property which has many, many features which we wanted to highlight through aerial and ground photos.”
