Chelsea Townhouse

A repeat client of ours, a senior managing partner in a private equity firm, came to us to find the impossible; a house on one of the best roads in Chelsea, with uninterrupted views of Burton Court and the Royal Hospital. With a budget of £10m, an intensive search ensued. Using our connections, we were able to uncover not only a house to buy on the street but one that also benefitted from very rare views over the gardens at the rear; one of only two houses with this advantage. We were first through the door of this entirely off-market gem and against stiff competition, brokered the deal inside the house immediately after our viewing and exchanged within 48hrs.

Clapham Old Town

A client recently referred to us was searching for a large period family house with an extensive garden. Already residents in the area, they confided that they weren’t entirely sure where they should buy. We worked closely together to deduce that the area that most suited their lifestyle was Clapham Old Town. Clapham Old Town boasts excellent transport links, local schools, multiple parks, an array of shops, cafes and restaurants. After a tenacious search with a budget of £8m, we secured their new home; a detached 5,250 sqft Victorian villa, on the best road in Clapham Old Town, completely off market with a 120ft south west facing garden.

Toast Rack, Wandsworth

A repeat client of ours, relocating back from the US to London asked us to source a substantial family house in Parsons Green, Fulham. After an extensive search, we recommended the client consider the very special house we had unearthed, south of their target area in the highly desirable Toast Rack, Wandsworth Common. The stunning property we secured for them was a detached double fronted house with off street parking, an 80ft garden and direct park access.

Bakery Place

A client from Switzerland approached us to buy them a London property investment and rent it out. Their priorities were for us to negotiate a significant discount on a property that would not only rent well but also appreciate in value. We were able to buy a unique, superb two-bedroom apartment in an award-winning converted bake house close to Clapham Junction station at twenty percent off the list price. The flat was rented out with a Net yield of 3.5%. We continue to manage the asset for the client.

Family house search £20m

After meeting with our client and conducting initial tours, it became clear that her ideal property was a wide, period house with a modern twist. She favoured quintessential London family houses in Chelsea with modern glass extensions and high-end finishes. This is not something commonly found in the Royal Borough due to strict planning restrictions, however, we have unearthed some fantastic examples.

The properties we have shown the client have been strictly off-market and demonstrates how we offer the most exclusive access to properties they would otherwise not find.

Buy to let £5m

We were asked to find "the best deal in Belgravia" for investors from Thailand, who wanted someone with an extensive knowledge of the London property market.

We managed to deliver them what we believe to have been the deal of the year. We secured the desirable off-market property at below £1,500/ft2, in one of Belgravia's best known addresses. The property was fully renovated and ready to let out immediately. The house had originally been marketed at over £7m and our clients were delighted to be paying at least 25% below market value. We are currently on the lookout for their next acquisition.

Frisco to Farringdon

A San Francisco-based partner of a global law firm was seeking a property in a prime location. As a secondary property it may sit unoccupied and he was therefore inclined towards the lower maintenance, new-build apartments.

Based on the clients’ tastes, we honed-in on a small new-build conversion, in an Edwardian-era Lyons Tea House building in Farringdon. Working with an interior designer, we were also able to negotiate with the developer – in advance of deal completion – custom alterations inside the apartment that echoed the building’s distinctive heritage.

Chiswick house search

When we first discussed the search with our client, he was frustrated by the amount of properties he was shown by estate agents that did not match his criteria. With limited resources he had not found anything he liked enough to make an offer.

We carried out an extensive search in his two favourite areas; Chiswick and Clapham Old Town. After just two days with us, our client had decided on a wider than average, semi-detached house in Chiswick with off-street parking. We agreed a fantastic deal for him at £866/ft2, just under 30% less than was paid for a similar house on the same street just 2 months before.

Chelsea house search

We were approached by a senior managing partner in a private equity firm. Both he and his wife wanted a property with a meticulously high level of finish.

We were granted exclusive access to the latest high-end development in Chelsea, pre completion. Our relationship with the agent and the developer, meant that we were able to show the client the house ahead of any other buyer and close negotiations incisively, given our privileged early access. We found a house that satisfied all his search requirements and delivered the acquisition at around half his original budget.

Flipping in Fulham

An investor came to us for advice on how to deploy funds in an area where growth could be achieved. A property which could dramatically increase in value was a fundamental part of the brief.

We identified an area of Fulham that we considered undervalued. During negotiations, the strength of our relationship with the agent and our credibility, meant we were successful, despite another higher bid. The deal we negotiated was strong enough that our client was able to reap the rewards of his investment without needing to improve the property or wait for the market to develop. Otherwise known as 'flipping'!

Designer property search

A couple, based in Notting Hill, came to us with a conundrum; how could they get enough space to future proof for a family on a budget, whilst avoiding moving further out to Kensal Rise and Queens Park?

We accepted this challenge and not only found them their dream mews property but negotiated the acquisition at 32% below market value. They are now moments away from the various cafes and restaurants Golbourne Road has to offer, their favourite weekend brunch destination in London and have bought in what we believe is a growth area on the fringes of Notting Hill.

Two feet on the ladder

We were approached by the CEO of a global company looking to buy properties for his children. His requirements were that his daughter was safe and comfortable and his son had a flat with good transport links and nightlife.

We found for Georgina a ground-floor apartment with an electronic gate, a 24 hour porter and access to various building amenities. For Jonathan, Clapham was an ideal location for its connectivity to central London and variety of nightlife. As the first buyers through the door, we were able to acquire both properties before they came on the market.
