A Nigerian based client who was looking to upsize from their apartment in Kensington to a semi-detached house
Our client was looking to relocate from busy Kensington to a more tranquil and quiet part of London. They were open to areas, but the property needed to have easy access to both Heathrow and Luton airports. Importantly our client wanted the master bedroom to either be located on the ground floor, or with very few steps leading to it.
We identified a brand newly developed house on a quiet and sought after cul-de-sac in an area known as The Hocrofts. The house measured almost 4700 sq. feet and had an impressive 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, all en-suite. Arranged over just 3 floors, with the majority of space on just two floors, it was the ideal solution for our client. The house originally came to market with an asking price of £3.85 million. It was then significantly reduced. We beat off competition from a corporate tenant to secure the property for our client and also managed to save them £75,000 from the reduced asking price. We paid an equivalent of £728 per sq. foot. Previous sales in the street have achieved £837 and £824 per sq. foot in 2017/16.
