Full advisory on property search and acquisition.
Relatively new to London, our clients had been bruised by a capricious market. Having been unable to persuade the landlord of their pretty rented house on the Belgravia/Chelsea borders to sell, they had fallen for a West Chelsea townhouse but pulled out of an uncomfortably opaque offer process. They came to us keen to see what other areas might offer them and their son in lifestyle terms.
- Coming from Central America, plenty of natural light was a must.
- Both work from home so needed quiet space as well as nanny accommodation and room for their toddler to play.
- Structural work was not top of their wish list!
Area tours of the family markets South of the River established that our clients were not quite ready for that larger step. Instead we took them to Holland Park where it was love at first sight!
Their initial reluctance to undertake a project fell away immediately when we unearthed an off-market opportunity on one of the prettiest streets (perfectly situated between the Park itself and the hustle and bustle of Westbourne Grove) which had been a much-loved family home for over 30 years.
Our design and project management team stepped in and, with the help of a fantastic young architect, we are reshaping this house to provide the perfect layout for its new owners.
