Hyde Park, W2
Our clients called upon Black Brick’s services to help them buy a family home in central London. They were living in a rental in Marylebone, which Black Brick had also found for them, and very much liked the area. But they were struggling to find a suitable property to buy.
There is a real shortage of family houses in this area and after an extensive and meticulous search our advice was to extend their search parameters – just a little.
We suggested that Connaught Village – the streets around Connaught Square, close to Hyde Park – could be a perfect compromise. Less hectic than Marylebone, the area has a similar vibe with its independent shops, cafes and restaurants. And it is less than a mile away from the centre of Marylebone.
They were enthusiastic about our idea and we were able to show them a stunning refurbished period townhouse with 5 bedrooms. The 2,400 square foot property was on the market for £3,850,00, but we were able to negotiate that price down to £3,500,000 , a saving of £350,000.
We thrive in competitive markets. The pandemic has significantly increased competition for family houses. We were delighted to finalise the purchase of such an attractive property, for below the asking price, which will be an ideal home for our clients for many years to come.
We would be delighted to hear from you to discuss your own property requirements. For a non-obligatory consultation, please contact us.
