And then there was one.
Knight Frank have just brought a very smart Pre ’63 Victorian house to the market, No. 400 Harold’s Cross Road. This property is one of 3 in a portfolio which they were instructed to sell earlier this year.
They sold No. 396 Harold’s Cross Road early in January this year. It received great interest and ended up going to a best and final offer.
No. 396 Harold’s Cross Road was a Pre ’63 house also. It is interesting, now that the new Residential Housing Standards taken effect many of these Pre ‘63’s are coming to the market as investors can no longer afford the upgrade required to make these houses compliant. There is a strong cohort of buyers out there who see these houses as great refurbishment opportunities.
No. 396 was sold to a couple who are sensitively restoring it in a complete and impressive refurb project. They recently took down the dividing doors between the two main reception doors only to reveal the most amazing original sliding doors which worked on a wheelie device from the top which was really unusual.
No. 398 is special in that it has an amazing oriel window in the gable end amongst other really smart period detail. This property was sale agreed earlier this summer.
No. 400 is currently for sale. And with such delightful features as ceiling roses and cornicing, sash windows and feature bays, in a prime location, this could be an exciting refurb project for any potential buyer.
