Abbotsbury Road

Our Client

Our clients were an Asian/Australian family looking to purchase their first family home in central London.

 

The Challenge

Since moving to London from Australia three years ago they had been in rented accommodation in the Holland Park area, and with a baby on the way, had decided they wanted to put down some proper roots and buy a permanent home. The market in Holland Park and surrounding areas for sensibly priced and well located properties in the £2m to £3.5m range is severely limited. Good properties often sell before coming onto the open market and competition is rife.

 

The Perfect Conclusion

Due to our excellent contacts with the right local agents, we were first in the door of this beautifully presented 3 bedroom freehold house, measuring almost 1800 square feet and with the added benefit of secure off street parking and south west facing garden. Abbotsbury Road is one of the most sought after roads in W14 and is located directly opposite Holland Park, making it an ideal family location. We managed to agree the sale during the first week of marketing, and also successfully negotiated a £205,000 discount from the asking price.

 

Lansdowne Road

Our Client

An American buyer

The Challenge

We sourced this stunning ground and lower ground floor apartment, with direct access to communal gardens for our client in April 2014 for £6.6 million. Our clients had enjoyed living in the property, but in spring 2016 they contacted us to discreetly help find a buyer for the property as they were relocating back to the US. Our clients did not want the property to be openly marketed and our instructions were to seek a buyer privately and with minimal disruption.

The Perfect Conclusion

Through our network we successfully identified two buyers within a few weeks, one of whom quickly agreed to purchase the property at the full asking price. At £2343 per sq. foot, this represents the highest price per square foot achieved for a flat on this street, a stunning achievement in what is currently a very slow and subdued sales market. The transaction proves that a discreet and confidential approach is often the best way to sell a property and is a prime example of how successful our Managed Sale Service is.

Redlynch Court, Addison Road

The Client

An International Client.

The Challenge

Our client was looking for a property that needed to be in immaculate condition and very secure as his daughter was going to be studying in London and would often be alone.

The Perfect Conclusion

We sourced a brand newly developed apartment within a portered block close to Holland Park. The property had recently been refurbished to a very high standard, in addition we were able to negotiate £250,000 off the asking price and had £100,000 of furniture included in the purchase.

Ilchester Place

The Client

A South African Buyer

The Challenge

Our clients were looking to relocate to London from South Africa. Unfamiliar with London, we spent time showing them different neighbourhoods and educating them on areas and pricing.

The Perfect Conclusion

“We showed our clients a number of properties in different areas so they could understand the variation in property styles and prices. Our clients fell in love with Holland Park.

When we viewed Ilchester Place, the property was already under offer with another purchaser at £16.5m with a delayed completion. We offered £16.25m (£2,365 per square foot) with a 5 day exchange which was accepted due to our relationship with the selling agent.

Another house on same road that requires refurbishment subsequently came onto the market at £3,266 per square foot, demonstrating our ability to achieve the very best deals for our clients.”
