The Villas

Our Client

An African Client

The Challenge

Our African client was looking for a second home in London, but also something that would prove to be a good long term investment. With a limited budget of £1.5 million we were tasked to try and identify a spacious 3 bedroom property in good condition or newly built within Central London.

The Perfect Conclusion

We spent time with our client showing them options right the way across London, from Putney, Fulham and Chiswick in the West to Clerkenwell in the East and Central areas such as Marylebone and Bayswater. We eventually introduced our client to the idea of Maida Vale having identified a unique opportunity to purchase one of just 8 contemporary new build villas in a gated, landscaped mews. The property was spacious, with 3 good sized bedrooms, plus a media room and also benefitted from allocated parking. Given the current state of the market we also negotiated aggressively for our client, saving them £125,000 from the asking price. We also introduced our client to the right lawyers and helped obtain finance for the transaction through our trusted network of mortgage brokers, providing our client with a complete one stop shop solution to their needs.

Aberdeen Court, Maida Vale

The Client

An International buyer.

The Challenge

Our client was looking for a pied a terre in Maida Vale or St Johns Wood. The property had to have 3 bedrooms and be located in a portered block. The flat also had to be in very good condition and the layout to have bedrooms at one end of the flat and living space at the other. St Johns Wood was above budget and very few developments in Maida Vale are portered.

The Perfect Conclusion

Within the few developments in Maida Vale that are portered, the layouts often do not have a clear definition between sleeping space and living space. We managed to find a newly refurbished apartment where the owner had changed the original layout to match the exact requirement for our client and we were able to acquire what is a very rare apartment for £50,000 under the asking price.

Lauderdale Mansions, Lauderdale Road

The Client

A Russian seller

The Challenge

Our overseas clients were looking to sell the London flat they had owned for over 10 years. The flat was unmodernised, without working electricity so needed to be exposed to the right buyer group. Our clients also did not have the time to go through the whole sales process and felt the need for expert advice to ensure they maximised the eventual price. They wanted someone on the ground who could meet and negotiate sales rates with the correct agent and liaise with the agent on viewings, qualify offers and report back with recommendations.

The Perfect Conclusion

The resulting sale went to a sealed bid between four separate buyers and was eventually agreed at £100,000 over the asking price.

Sutherland Avenue

The Client

An Indian investor

The Challenge

Our client was looking for a central London property that could be easily rented in the short term and would provide a base for their children who will come to University in the UK in years to come.

The Perfect Conclusion

After a sequence of guided property tours we narrowed down a particular area our clients felt comfortable with. Through our contact in a local estate agency office we arranged access for our clients to view a very attractive first floor apartment before it came onto the open market. The offer was submitted, negotiated and agreed in quick time, cancelling out the threat of competitive bids from other potential buyers.

Chippenham Mews

The Client

An Indian Investor

The Challenge

Our clients were first time investors into the London property market. Based in India, they wanted to be completely led and guided by us, and also would not be able to visit London, so we had to make sure they had all the facts in order to make a decision.

The Perfect Conclusion

Our clients were first time investors into the London property market, and wanted to be led and guided by us. We identified a good value 2 bedroom property in Maida Vale, close to the tube and shops, knowing it would rent easily and be a good long term investment. We also saved our clients £20,000 from the asking price, a 4% saving.
