Our repeat Hong Kong client was searching for a property with very specific requirements that are hard to achieve in the Knightsbridge area. The property had to be situated in a period building, with ceiling heights of at least 3m, but with no-one above the bedrooms. Apartments in the area generally have depreciating ceiling heights as you go up in the building, so there are very few flats on the top floors where this can be found. The building also had to have a lift.
We successfully agreed the purchase of this stunning 2,050 sq ft duplex penthouse apartment with 3m ceiling heights and far reaching views across Knightsbridge. The apartment has been purchased shell & core, providing a blank canvas for our client to create a new unique space to their own taste. We negotiated £200,000 off the asking price, with the final purchase price equating to a rate of £2,097 per sq ft. Similar flats in good condition on the street have achieved as much as £3,346 per sq ft in the last 12 months.
We’re patient – despite very tough search requirements, we worked tirelessly over a 12 month period in order to source the right apartment for our client
