A British client looking for a family home.
Our client wanted a large, detached house in South West London. Their ideal property needed to be very private, not overlooked and with a secluded garden. With three dogs, access to open spaces within walking distance from the property was also an important requirement. They had previously been under offer on another property in Wimbledon for £6.5 million, but had lost confidence in both the property and the price being paid, and so engaged us as their buying agent to provide proper guidance and advice.
We spent time educating our client on various desirable areas in South West London, working out what was important to them and what wasn’t. We identified Putney as a suitable location, and one that would offer our clients better value for money than more expensive Wimbledon. Through our network of contacts we identified an off market house in Heathview Gardens. The front of the house had uninterrupted views across a cricket pitch with a stunning, private 90 foot west facing garden to the rear. Heathview Gardens is located on Putney Heath, surrounded by woodland with Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park easily accessible. Crucially we managed to save our client £300,000 or 5.1% from the asking price concluding the purchase at £5,500,000 or £935 per square foot.
