Lillie Square

The Challenge

Our client was looking for a 3 bedroom apartment in a new build development to hold as a long term investment. The budget for the purchase was £2,000,000.

The Perfect Conclusion

We identified a rare opportunity to purchase a stunning, sub-penthouse apartment in the popular Lillie Square development from a distressed seller who could no longer complete. Lillie Square will be one of the most high-profile residential developments in London, transforming a 7.4 acre car park on Seagrave Road into 808 high-end new homes offering modern garden square living. The seller, having originally exchanged contracts at £2,074,000, wasn’t able to complete on the purchase and as a result we were able to agree terms on the contract at £1,700,000, some £374,000 or 18% below the original contract price.  Three bedroom apartments in this scheme and on this floor have traded at £1,714/sqft, we secured this for our client at at a highly competitive £1,352/sqft.

The Unfair Advantage

We buy below market value and can identify highly motivated sellers. At £1,352 per square foot, we acquired the property for 18% below the original contract price.

Harbour Reach, Imperial Wharf

The Client

An International buyer.

The Challenge

Our client was looking for a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment in good condition. The layout of the flat had to have a clear distinction between sleeping space and living space and ideally a separate utility room. The property also had to have a porter and be in a good location within Prime Central London. With a budget of £1.2 million, this presented us with a hard task.

The Perfect Conclusion

We were able to source an apartment which met all of the criteria and more – The property even benefited from a private balcony with views of the river. We also saved our clients £20,000 from the asking price as a result of our negotiations.

The Perfect Conclusion

With a good local knowledge of the area, we invited three agents in to value the property and we chose who we thought could produce the best result for our client.

The Challenge

International client with children at boarding school in the UK looking for a secure, discreet freehold house to use during half terms and holidays.

The Perfect Conclusion

We sourced an off market mews house in a small gated development in Fulham. The property was in immaculate condition and so could be used by the family straight away.

Inglethorpe Street

The Client

An African Buyer

The Challenge

Our clients already owned a flat in Fulham, but required more space and wanted a house in the same area.

The Perfect Conclusion

We found the house with a very small local agent at £600 per sq foot, when locally, houses tend to sell for £800 per sq foot. The vendor had found an alternative property to move to, so we were able to negotiate strongly and saved our clients £200,000 from the asking price.

Courtyard House, Imperial Wharf

The Client

A Turkish Buyer

The Challenge

Our client already owned a flat in Imperial Wharf and wanted us to find them a bigger flat, but for a good price.

The Perfect Conclusion
