Our client Sue had owned her flat for a number of years, where it had been rented out.

Ealing Village is a charming and pretty Grade II-listed estate, designed in 1934 by R. Thomas and Partners. The estate was originally intended to appeal to actors and producers at nearby Ealing Studios and retains many of its original features, including private tennis courts, an outdoor residents’ pool, clubhouse and expansive and well-kept gardens.

Having carried out some research it showed a few flats that had been listed for some time and were not selling, due to both the more challenging market conditions and escalating service charge costs (that included heating and hot water).

My advice to Sue was to renovate it is, as regardless of the market, people always buy the very best properties.

The service I offered Sue was that I would style the flat, organise the builders and project manage the re-model, so Sue didn’t have to do anything whatsoever.

After Re-model


We have now exchanged contracts with our buyer and have sold the flat for an excellent price given the difficulties others on the estate are facing trying to find a buyer.

Proof that well designed re-models can help you sell quickly, and for a market leading price too.
