Searching for a pied-à-terre in London?
Keen to be in a modern block with a good view, our clients had been browsing through new blocks from Battersea to London Bridge. With so many blocks – old, new and off plan – it was a daunting task for our clients to differentiate between them, trying to understand why some were more expensive than others.
Our experience and unmatched knowledge as London buying agents meant that we were quickly able to explain the differences between the blocks, highlight the pitfalls of some and point out the expensive views that may disappear once other new blocks are erected.
We then came up with a new idea – Westminster. This is where our clients settled, in a slightly older block, with amazing views over a Georgian garden square that will never be built on. It was nearly half the price per sqft of the new build properties they started off looking at.
For an Australian client (three brothers and sister), looking for a pied-à-terre over a significant area of central London had left them confused. They wanted a base that their extended family could enjoy at various times of the year and they had been looking from Kensington to Shoreditch.
We helped these clients decide on the best area after considering the pros and cons of several locations, concluding with the purchase of a quintessential period, white stucco, flat overlooking a garden square. Importantly, we also ensured that we found a property in a very well-managed block, giving them peace of mind, from the other side of the world.

”Jane’s knowledge of our selected areas was very impressive, down to individual streets and even individual apartment blocks. We benefited from her many years of experience in the industry. Jane worked very hard to meet our needs and help us understand the market. She was extremely professional throughout the entire process. We were very grateful she was able to recommend solicitors, a surveyor and even a local builder for some renovations. We would not hesitate to recommend her services.”
