Our Client

An English couple with a growing family looking to upsize to a larger family home.

 

The Challenge

Our clients had been living in a beautiful apartment in Kensington but with a growing family decided that they wanted to buy a house in the same area. They were very focused on identifying a property where they could add value and so were open to the idea of buying something which required a significant amount of work. Initially our clients had started the search themselves but had become increasingly frustrated with the lack of good quality stock combined with the unrealistic price expectations of many sellers in this area of London. They engaged Black Brick to take over their search.

 

The Perfect Conclusion

Through our network we were introduced to an off market house on Bedford Gardens in Kensington which had been owned by the same family for many years. The family had successfully applied for planning permission which allowed for the house to be almost doubled in size through a basement extension, developing the side and rear of the ground floor level as well as a loft conversion. The property had an asking price of £5,950,000 however as a result of our negotiations we were able to secure a discount of £1,100,000 (or nearly 19%) and contracts were exchanged at £4,850,000.
