All the news from Keningtons.
Our building consultancy department have been appointed to oversee strip out and reinstatement works to a Grade II Listed property between Bayswater and Notting Hill. Damage caused to the original wood block floor was subject to a target drying method which resulted in minimal loss of historic fabric and the speedy return of occupiers to the risk address.
Acting on behalf of a private landlord we have completed a new 10 year lease of premises in Islington to Brewers Decorators (www.brewers.co.uk).
The demised area includes four shop fronts on New North Road in Islington with connected basement/storage and car parking areas.
Testimonial from Client: "I felt confident in you and always felt you would get the job done. I was glad to have an expert on our side whom was able to argue our case successfully, especially the point about how much exposure the shops frontage allows."
Acting on behalf of a private client, the Swindon office have successfully sold 53 Victoria Road, Swindon for residential conversion. The property was originally on the market to let as offices but as the Victoria Road area of Swindon has seen a number of older Victorian properties being converted back to their original use, the recommendation was to sell the property with the benefit of permitted development for 5 apartments. Jeremy Sutton who handled the sale comments "After setting up 2 open viewing days, best bids were invited and the sale price finally agreed was well in excess of the guide of £250,000. The whole process from initial viewings to completion took place within 10 weeks".
In order to facilitate a private sale, Keningtons were appointed to carry out a full building survey on a high net worth residential property located within the Hampstead Conservation Area.
The front façade of the property dates back to 1883 and the internal space has undergone a major refurbishment to include a leisure complex with a steel and concrete staircase leading to a fourth floor eyrie with unrivalled views across the London skyline.
