5 bedroom family home
Commercial property director upsizing
Our clients had been actively searching for a house in Chelsea – where they already lived – for more than a year, before engaging us as they couldn’t find the right house.
With three young children, bigger lateral space was critical and they didn't want the upheaval of doing a large refurbishment.
We exhausted the Chelsea market and, over the course of 11 property viewings, we methodically demonstrated the different architecture and price points so they could truly understand the micro markets and make more informed decisions. At the same time, we also challenged them in terms of space and location.
We presented a 'wild card' which was a unique, off market former rectory in Battersea which provided incredible lateral space and a much larger garden than the Chelsea houses offered in their price range.
Our clients recognised the uniqueness of the property and the family living it provided, plus it had the added benefit of being walking distance from the children’s school, whilst still being on the doorstep of Chelsea.
They also understood that they were buying something rare, as only a handful of houses in Battersea provide similar space, nearly all of which traded hands within 3 months of their purchase, to other would-be-Chelsea buyers.
Our clients now own a house which is more impressive and practical than anything they had viewed before appointing us, and they have the certainty that they will never grow out of it or need to move again.
