Many spectacular properties have come to the market this year from town houses to luxury apartments. We have sold and let homes across Belgravia, Kensington and Chelsea. But which ones have we enjoyed selling and letting the most? Here our sales and lettings teams share their favourite moments and properties of 2016.
- James Bailey (Chief Executive): Queensdale Place, London W11
“Probably one of the most unique homes that I have ever sold. It was inspirationally designed by the vendor to create a family home, while incorporating its own private nightclub.”
- Anita Sanford (Head of Sales): Redcliffe Square, London SW10
“A truly spectacular house of around 12,000 sq ft, located in The Little Boltons. The property was refurbished to an exceptional standard with all the facilities, including the most impressive swimming pool I have seen in a private house. It was let by Henry and James for three years.”
- Harry Berry (Sales Manager): West Halkin Street, London SW1X
“A wonderful flat that ticked every box. I would love this flat for myself. It has great volume and proportions, the perfect blend of classical, period features and a practical layout. Perhaps best of all though is the location. You could not ask for better neighbours, including Mossiman’s Private Dining Club, Waitrose’s flagship London store and the health club, Grace.
“There was also something rather wonderful about the fact that the sellers were a lovely retired couple, who were moving back to Switzerland, having owned the flat for more than a decade.”
- Charles Sheldon (Senior Sales Negotiator): Hamilton Terrace, London NW8
“I absolutely love this property because of the entertaining space on the ground floor. The house is a perfect family home with three reception areas on the ground floor, which lead out onto a large rear garden. The master bedroom and ensuite is also impressive. It takes up the whole of the first floor and leads out onto a large private terrace. It is a truly special home.”
- Sam Gummer (Sales Negotiator): Godfrey Street, London SW3
“Amazing location just off the Kings Road with all of the shops, but feels like the countryside once you are inside. Very quiet and peaceful with Chelsea Green next door.”
- Steve Cook (Senior Lettings Manager): Eaton Terrace, London SW1W
“We let this fantastic home in autumn 2016. Before the new tenants took occupancy, the house was completely renovated to the highest specifications. Features included a custom-built champagne bar, Jacuzzi and steam room. The property was let to a lovely couple for their new home.”
- Richard Gunning (Lettings Manager) Wilton Crescent, London SW1X
“Rented to a film producer while they filmed a Hollywood movie.”
- Katherine Kay (Lettings Negotiator): Pont Street, London SW1X
“Because I loved letting this property!”
- Fiona Patty (Lettings Negotiator): Pavilion Road, London SW1X
“My first deal with Henry & James!”
