Retirement to Connaught Village

Based in the US for work, our clients approached us to find a London flat to complement their family home in the countryside. Area tours covering locations from bustling Covent Garden to leafy Wandsworth Common brought us to the happy compromise of Connaught Village centrally located with Hyde Park on its doorstep.

The flat we identified offered three bedrooms – one for each of our clients’ children (and one more than they had hoped for).

Diligence revealed the vendor was the only owner in the block to have passed on the opportunity to purchase a share of the freehold. We navigated our clients through the complex enfranchisement negotiations and drafted in a planning expert to advise on alterations they wanted to make in the context of this listed building.
