You’d be forgiven for thinking the buying market in London had ground to a halt with the delay of Brexit and the run up to the General Election but the opposite is actually true. Behr & Butchoff is pleased to report the exchange of two three-bedroom corner apartments in one of St. John’s Wood’s most desirable locations – the Queensmead development. Set in the Sheringham and Walsingham buildings, respectively, the apartments exchanged on the same day and proceedings caused a ripple of real excitement in the office.
If you own a property on the Queensmead development, we have more buyers waiting – purchasers for whom the location, size and specification of this type of property overtakes any politically-fuelled hesitancy.
Why do buyers love the Queensmead development?
Properties on the Queensmead development are the perfect illustration of the low-maintenance, lock-up-and-leave style London buyers crave. Built in the 1960s when proportions were generous, many of the apartments have been completely renovated to very luxurious standards. This prestigious development prides itself on 24-hour porterage, high security levels, well-maintained communal gardens and off-street parking, which is offered on a first come served basis. Residents also enjoy a prime position by the famous Abbey Road crossing made famous by The Beatles.
The Queensmead development is well connected too - only 0.3 miles from St. John’s Wood and Swiss Cottage Tube stations, and 0.4 miles from St. John’s Wood High Street. It is also surrounded by several state and independent schools, all less than a mile way, including the coveted American School in London.
Confidence in the current property market
Pierce Cooper-Smith ad Mehran Heidari, Behr & Butchoff’s Flat Sales Team, says developments such as Queensmead never fall out of fashion and remain hot property during political or economical unrest: “We are finding Behr & Butchoff’s portfolio is still very much in demand, reflected by the recent exchange of two properties on the same day in the same development.”
“We would therefore like to reassure property owners that they can come to market with a good degree of confidence. We are definitely seeing a demand for prestigious and well-located properties on the Queensmead development and beyond.”
