Barnes Investment

The Brief

A personal referral from a private bank. An ex-pat overseas client requiring a dual purpose property, investment proposal for the first five years and then their ultimate family home when they re-patriate after that time. A primary driver in the search and timeframe was for an attractive wider than average Victorian/Edwardian family home in as quiet, yet well located London village.

Access to excellent schools was essential, for when the time came.

Development meets investment meets forever family home

The Search

Education being crucial, SW4, SW11 and SW13 provide some of the best schools in south west London. The housing stock in these locations is comparable in terms of age, configuration and transport. As a result, these  make good investment stock and family homes.

The Result

It was decided Barnes was the chosen location having sustained its values and yields over the last four years. Our clients purchased an end of terrace wider than average Victorian house which offered scope for re-development.  TLR has advised upon the extension (planning permission has now been granted) and refurbishment options and from our little black book of contractors, TLR recommended planning consultants and builders to undertake the project.

Due to the fact that we live in Hong Kong, the decision to use Marcus at The London Resolution was a sensible one. The brief was to find a family home in either Barnes or Clapham/Battersea that we could rent out until such time as we decided to relocate back to the UK. From the moment we engaged with Marcus the service provided was exceptional and saved us valuable time and energy by leveraging his considerable experience in the London property market. The assurance and additional peace of mind that we were buying a great house on the right street was invaluable and the depth of knowledge and research shared with us was incredibly useful. Not only was Marcus immensely helpful in the search process, but also his professional network of property related service providers such as lawyers, insurance brokers, planning consultants, building contractors and architects was second to none. His introductions in this regard were greatly appreciated and will have no doubt saved us from the emotional and financial pain of self-selecting less reliable providers. I would highly recommend Marcus and the team at The London Resolution for anyone looking to make their buying process an easier and more successful outcome.
