Q&A ASKTHEEXPERT

Q

Should sellers ask less to secure a sale? Guy Leaning, Director Robert Holmes & Company Coombe

A

House prices have fallen for the third successive month in May, so the Nationwide Building Society reports. This is the first reported consecutive fall in a row for eight years which has seen a drop of almost 1% in value terms during this period. The number of registrations of buyers searching has fallen, therefore creating a lull in transaction volumes. Stamp Duty is also a dark cloud hanging over the housing market and unlikely to change significantly in the near future. Pricing and realistic conversations have never been more important in establishing a buyer. The market has generally worked through a correction every seven years since WW2, while we are in uncharted times pricing and honest conversations with sellers are paramount in achieving activity and a positive outcome. The key therefore is to ask a realistic price from the outset rather than start too high and chase the market down in series of price reductions. A realistic value from the beginning is so important and this will pave the way to a successful sale.

orest Hill has been somewhat of a hidden gem for years. It’s leafy streets foster a great community spirit (the Victorian library was saved from the developers’ clutches), it has The Horniman Museum and Garden, a burgeoning foodie scene and just off the bustling London Road is Havelock Walk – a cobbled cul-de-sac developed by the sculptor Jeff Lowe over 20 years as a live/ work artistic community. It has attracted the likes of Turner Prize nominated installation artist David Mach and is the recording base of Mercury Prize winner Dizee Rascal, right.

HEADS-UP DUKEMEETS LONDONYOUTH The gardens at Buckingham Palace were transformed into a youth club for one afternoon, under the watchful eye of the Duke of Edinburgh to celebrate the 130th anniversary of London Youth. Over 250 people attended the event including London Youth supporters and youth workers, and young people from more than 30 London community and youth organisations. Guests were able to take part in a host of activities, from tennis and rock climbing to catapult-making. Julian Peak, Sales Director, a KFH, a charity partner of London Youth, said: “130 years is an amazing milestone and it has been an absolute pleasure be a part of such an important year. We share many of London Youth’s values so they made a natural fit as a charity partner, but it’s been fantastic for our network of 60 branches and offices to support specific youth clubs across the Capital. So far this year we’ve raised nearly £13,000 for London Youth with a target of £60,000 by the end of December.”

new stretch of the Thames river walk in Nine Elms is being opened to the public and enlivened with art installations. The project, led by Wandsworth Council and funded by private development, focuses on 500 metres of waterfront along Nine Elms Lane between Heathwall Pumping Station and the new Riverside Gardens ‘pocket park’. This upgraded part of the South Bank includes new interactive seating that allows people to enjoy their chosen view of the Thames, potentially tracking the sun from sunrise to sunset. Riverside Gardens has undergone extensive replanting in time for this year’s Chelsea Fringe festival and is now studded with colourful perennials. A little further west a new pavilion will provide another new cultural space for the area and will be home to a programme of arts activities throughout the year. Over the next 10 years almost the entire stretch of the Thames river path from Battersea Park to the Albert Embankment will be renewed as more former industrial sites make way for public open space, homes, pubs, shops and cultural venues. The long term aim is to create a joined up, green and walkable route along the Nine Elms and Vauxhall riverside, lined with new parks and attractive public squares.

n support of Royal Horticultural Society’s Greening Grey Britain campaign, Foxtons commissioned a study of 2,000 Brits to find out what constitutes the average garden for householders in the UK. Working with an area of 15x12 meters on average, 80% of have a nicely mowed lawn, with 55% also enjoying a patio area. Almost a third of our garden will be covered by decking or paving, and one in ten will have concreted a part of our garden over at least once. Guy Barter, Chief Horticulturist, said: “It’s great to see from this research that the majority of people, 75%, do appreciate the value of having a garden. And, even better, is that most also want grass and flowers in their gardens too. “ According to Daren Haysom from Foxtons: “The availability of a garden is the third most important consideration for those looking for their new home, after the location and the size of the property. “According to the results of the survey,

55% of us would not consider renting or buying a property without a garden, and 36% of us believe that a garden is more valuable than an extra bedroom, with 46% considering both equally as important.” Some 72% of those surveyed said they would pay more for a garden. In London, according to Daren, the premium ranges depending on the location and the size of the garden, from over £150,000 in prime central areas to £30,000 in outer London areas like Croydon.

HOT SPOTS

With summer now in full swing, the place to be is – without a doubt – along the River Thames. Lined with the most luxurious new developments, living along the river has become a lifestyle choice, and is now a favourite choice for many, from both within the UK and globally. Re-locating to a brand new riverside pad can be extremely advantageous with year-round benefits including phenomenal river and skyline views and with endless amenities on site – including gyms, swimming pools, bars and restaurants – anything you could possibly desire is practically on your doorstep. Matthew Smith, Partner and Office Head, Riverside Sales Knight Frank (see Home Compare, page 26)

WORD ON THE STREET Is price not politics a barrier to moving? MARC WIEHE WINKWORTH Buyers and sellers should take a longterm view of the property market when decision making, not letting economic or political events obscure the bigger picture. We have entered into an era where Central London property prices are unattainably high which severely restricts any growth in value for the foreseeable future. As Lambeth (particularly Streatham and Brixton) has started to flourish, neither price nor politics will be a barrier to moving. However as prices grow, there is a risk that Greater London, too, will be out of the reach of ordinary buyers and the “reverse ripple” phenomenon may take hold.

SAM SPROSTON KNIGHT FRANK As every estate agent knows, price is a major factor in the sale process. One can feasibly ask any price but if it is too high then it is unlikely to result in anyone moving and with current price sensitivity being at its most acute in recent years, it can certainly be a barrier. Politics however can also create an obstacle to trading. We see a slowdown before any election as people decide to ‘wait and see’. Certainly the more risk adverse will unlikely buy without knowing the result. So at the moment it’s a bit of both.

COMING ONSTRONG Interior designer Guy Wengraf has succeeded in creatively converting a Victorian house into a stylish space for modern living

W

hen it came to creating his own house Guy Wengraf, an interior designer, admits he agonised over every detail. The attraction of the Victorian house was its unusual width and the large plot with a 65-foot long garden. The drawback was its tatty condition and that fact it was completely unmodernised. But to a designer an unmodernised house is an opportunity to bring something wonderful into existence. He says: “The result is mix of styles. We retained the façade and railings at the front of the house and inside used a simple pallet of strong Victorian colours: dark blue and a strong green with a lighter colour to create a clean feeling. “We used a number of large framed glazed door sets throughout, which are a close copy of an Adolf Loos design from Austria in the 1920s. Again those were picked out in dark paint in a Victorian manner – the idea was to introduce a more contemporary almost industrial theme, in a way that would not contrast too much with the rest of the house.

“Everything has been built bespoke to a high standard. The build went two months over the 12 months we had planned because we increased the spec slightly as we went along.” The house was completely reconfigured, from a loft conversion to house a sumptuous master bedroom and en suite bathroom, to the addition of an extra bedroom underneath the front garden, to a stylish annex at the bottom of the formal garden. The result is an extensively remodelled and refurbished house set back from the road behind an immaculate front garden with four bedrooms, four bathrooms, exceptional reception space and a fullyfitted garden annex that could serve as a fifth bedroom, an office or a teen’s TV room. Guy’s day job is running interior design and development company, Vitruvius & Co, so when it came to doing his family home, managing the project was straightforward and he had the advantage of being able to create bespoke solutions at every stage, from the industrial looking kitchen and joinery to the wood panelling in many rooms.

“I like Mediterranean gardens, all evergreen so it’s easy to maintain and looks great all year around.” Guy Wengraf

GETTHELOOK... The house was furnished with a selection of mainly antique pieces sourced from auctions across the country and then, in many cases, stripped, bleached and recovered with new fabrics. Artworks were also specially chosen and framed to suit the house. Even the garden was planned with no expense spared. “I departed from the Victorian theme with the garden. I like Mediterranean gardens, all evergreen so it’s easy to maintain and looks great all year around.” Six gnarled olive trees between 60 and 70 years old form the backbone of the garden, planted in grass with box balls and lavender dotted about amid white stonework and a dining area set against dark painted brick walls and limestone pavers.

OLDMEETSNEW After a painstaking two-year total renovation to add wings to the original Victorian building, Warren Cottage is now a fabulous family home set in a conservation area

O

riginally, the cottage, built in 1850, was a lodge to the Ladderstile entrance to Richmond Park. It remained in Estate ownership until 1924 when it was sold to Marquess of Donegall who remained in residence until the mid 1950s. The property now has ample accommodation over two floors, including six bedrooms and four reception rooms, with a self-contained annex. It has been submitted for a RIBA Award. The connection of the two designs is an architectural masterpiece, linking the original cottage to the new elements. The modern German fitted kitchen houses the Gaggenau fridge, oven, bean coffee machine and plate warmer drawer with a central island with stone surface and recessed sink. The open plan kitchen continues into the triple aspect family room with its recessed TV surround and space for the speakers. Iroko flooring is found across the entire ground floor with underfloor heating. Large sliding doors open out to various granite terraces which lead to a sunken mosaic-tiled ornamental pool

with stepping stones across the pool and lawn to a pergola walk way to the self-contained, one-bedroom annex with separate gym and store room. The annex is all open plan with underfloor heating to the ceramic tiled floor. It has a heat recovery system and fully double glazed units. Warren Cottage stands within about 0.33 of an acre with a wraparound garden, which is bordered by a double skin 2m high fence with mature shrubs, bushes and trees including a mulberry tree off the kitchen terrace, acacia and oak trees. Coombe is conveniently located close to Kingston and Wimbledon town centres with excellent shopping facilities. The A3 offers fast access to central London and both Gatwick and Heathrow airports via the M25 are also close at hand. Norbiton Station is within walking distance with frequent services to London Waterloo and Vauxhall.

NEWHOMESUPDATE John Khaje’Nouri, Director, Robert Holmes & Company introduces a New Homes department

I

n my 25 years with Robert Holmes & Company, I have worked with many developers, large national and small ‘boutique’, helping to create their visions of striking 21st century homes in Wimbledon and Coombe. As a company, we have enjoyed considerable success in selling some of the finest new-build and refurbished or restored properties in south west London and Surrey, gaining a reputation for being the specialists in marketing new homes in the area. As a result, we have recently set up a dedicated New Homes department to provide a more bespoke service to developers and to meet the ever increasing demand for new-build properties reflecting the current appetite for high quality contemporary living. The department is going from strength to strength and we are currently marketing more than 40 new properties for sale. Our exciting portfolio includes unique one-off projects and small developments and a number of sites available for either single or multi-dwelling development. The following are just a small sample of our available properties. Novo, a fantastic contemporary detached house in Copse Hill, is a one-off development by luxury design and build company Visu Verum. Its striking features include a double-height reception hall, fabulous open plan reception spaces and kitchen and full-width floor to ceiling bi-fold doors providing a seamless

connection with the terraces and garden with its heated swimming pool, waterfall and pool house. For more traditional tastes, an imposing Arts and Crafts property in Home Park Road has been fully rebuilt and extended behind its façade, combining period features with contemporary architecture, demonstrated by the first floor landing with full-height glass atrium aspect and glazed bi-fold doors opening onto a wide balcony. The garden level incorporates other 21st century requirements including gym, sauna, media room and wine cellar. Asquith House in the prestigious Coombe Estate is a substantial classically-styled substantial residence by award-winning Q Developments.

For the commuter, Carlyle Court is a select new scheme of one and two bedroom executive apartments in the heart of Southfields. Floor to ceiling windows add to the feeling of light and space and the apartments benefit from access to a resident’s garden and an on-site M&S food hall and 24-hour gym. Prices start from £580,000. For further details please contact me directly on 020 8947 9833 and I would be more than happy to assist you.

STERLING WORK A redevelopment of the famous Art Metal Works, where arts and craft designs were created, will result in 24 luxury loft apartments gathered around a stylish communal courtyard. Specialist luxury property developer The Malins Group unveiled plans for its latest boutique development The Metalworks in the east side of Clapham Old Town. The site was the home of arts and crafts pioneer William Bainbridge Reynolds who famously created the Kitchener chapel gates at St Paul’s Cathedral. The Metalworks continues The Malins Group’s record of offering developments with a notable cultural history, following the development of the Beatles’ former headquarters in Marylebone and The Book House, a development of the historic home of the Booker Prize. Echoing the famous metalworker’s ethos of ‘flawless individuality’, there are many bespoke features throughout the development. A Heritage Foundation blue plaque honours Reynolds in the courtyard area. A sundial feature has been installed, which is a modern interpretation of a clock Reynolds designed in 1898 for St Cuthbert’s Church. The courtyard is lit with architectural lighting, classic coach lamps and festoons hung above cobbled mews. Lit walkways, copper planters and borders lead to a ‘secret’ communal garden area with evergreen plants, witch hazel and Acer trees. The development of four studios, eight onebedroom apartments and twelve two-bedroom apartments, with prices ranging from £425,000 to £1,000,000, will be finished this December.

uxury developer Octagon’s latest launch on one of Esher’s most exclusive private roads is once again setting a new benchmark for opulent living. The five-bedroom, three-storey house with a sizeable south-facing garden enjoys sunlight all day and nestles behind the buzzing High Street with its shops, restaurants and Everyman cinema. The house includes a bespoke kitchen/breakfast/dining ‘super room’ serving as the family hub of the home, with sliding double doors opening out to the landscaped garden creating ideal indoor/outdoor living for the summer months. Separate formal dining and drawing rooms, along with a TV den and home office/study, open onto the impressive hallway and entrance – with large windows spanning all three floors, drawing in light across the glass-panelled spiral staircase. The spacious master suite stretches across the width of the first floor, with French doors opening onto a Juliette balcony, allowing plenty of natural light and views of the stunning rear garden. There are built-in wardrobes for storage in the two his’n’hers en suite dressing rooms and two lavish marble bathrooms. On the first floor there are three more double bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms and bespoke built-in wardrobes. The second floor has two further large rooms, offering more bedroom options, although one would be perfect as the family games room, and alongside, a separate family bathroom. Karl Matier, Director at Savills, explains; “While Sandown Avenue is perfectly positioned for Esher High Street, Claygate village is also less than a mile away, where new residents can enjoy a selection of wonderful eateries and shops, and local favourite The Swan Inn. “Octagon’s new home is equidistant between Esher and Claygate Stations, which both run regular, fast train services into central London. With the stations located on different train lines, there are even more options each hour to get you both in and out of the city, making Southlands very conveniently placed for commuters.” Southlands, Sandown Avenue, Esher, Surrey, KT10, £5.25m, Savills Esher 01372 461900

W

ith bank rates at rock bottom and savings not earning much, overpaying on your mortgage can be a sensible decision. Since mortgage rates have been at record lows, more people have been taking advantage and overpaying in an attempt to pay less interest and clear their balance more quickly. Someone with a £500,000 mortgage with a 25-year term and a rate of 2 per cent who overpaid by £200 per month, for example, would pay £15,732 less in interest and reduce their mortgage term by two years and nine months. Another advantage of overpaying is that you get used to a higher mortgage payment each month so when interest rates do start rising, it should come as less of a shock. Borrowers should take heed of the particular requirements of their lender and check before making any overpayments. Most lenders will let you overpay by a maximum of 10 per cent of the mortgage amount per annum; any more than that and you will be charged an early repayment charge for doing so, which defeats the whole object. While reducing your mortgage is nearly always a good idea, before you do overpay, you should also clear more expensive debt on credit and store cards, as those will be costing you more. There is little wisdom in overpaying when your mortgage rate is say 3 per cent, when you have debt on your credit card which is charged at a rate approaching 20 cent. If you do decide to overpay on your mortgage, you must also make sure to keep some money back for emergencies, as money overpaid is often impossible to get back again. A contingency fund equal to say six months’ worth of outgoings kept in an easy-access savings account is often a good idea, although the exact amount will depend on what you are personally comfortable with.

he number of mortgages approved fell to a seven-month low in April, according to Bank of England data. Lenders approved 64,645 mortgages last month, slipping from a downwardly revised 66,043 in March and well below average forecasts in a poll of economists carried out by Reuters. The BoE said net mortgage lending rose by £2.731 billion in April, the smallest rise in a year. Borrowing by consumers also slowed. Consumer credit in April rose by £1.525 billion, down from an increase of 1.613 billion in March. Spending by households helped the economy to grow strongly last year, but there have been signs of caution among consumers since the start of the year. However a poll showed that while people were gloomy about the economic outlook for the country as a whole, they were upbeat about their own finances.

COULDACAPFIT? Should the new government consider interfering in mortgage rates, asks Duncan Farmer

N

The idea that a government should get involved in the market for home loans, which are optional, whereas utility bills are not, may seem a step foo far for the nanny state. However, the Irish government looks likely to pass just such a law, because campaigners say that Irish borrowers with a €300,000 mortgage are paying €200 a month more than their peers in France and Germany where such a cap exists. Bizarrely one objection came from the European Central Bank, which said that such a cap would be unconstitutional. The Dublin parliament has overcome that objection and a new law is likely to come in over the next few weeks. One stumbling block in the UK could have been that the bank that lends the most to house buyers was Lloyds, which owns Halifax. Lloyds was of course rescued by the government and could have had a lot to lose by a cap on its profitable standard variable rate loans, but the state’s stake in the lender has been sold, so that objection has gone. Until the government does introduce a legal cap, borrowers must do it themselves. It’s not difficult and the savings are obvious.

ow that, mercifully, the general election is behind us, normal life can continue until the next time and the media will spend the coming months trying to spot how many of the new government’s manifesto pledges have gone out of the window. Immigration and the shape of Brexit will be the two big ones, and another that most parties seemed agreed on was the need to cap electricity prices, but what about mortgages? The cap on energy prices for some people introduced in April is thought to save 4 million bill payers about £80 a year. A handy sum, but nothing to write home about. One suggestion during the campaign – that making banks offer every mortgage borrower their lowest interest rate – would save them double that every month. At the time of writing the average two-year fixed rate was 1.42 per cent compared with the average lender’s standard variable rate of 4.49 per cent. Anyone with a £200,000, 25-year repayment mortgage would save £163 a month by being on the fixed rate.

N

ationwide says that it will no longer lend money to buy new build properties with punitive clauses on ground rents or shorter leases after it emerged that one house builder had a clause in the lease of new properties that the ground rent, which starts at £295 a year would double every 10 years, according to The Daily Telegraph. This means that in 50 years’ time the ground rent will be £9,440 a year. Nationwide said the maximum acceptable starting ground rent on all new build leasehold properties would be limited to 0.1pc of the property’s value, adding that ground rents had to be “reasonable”. The stipulation means that on a £400,000 home the maximum ground rent would be £400 a year.

A beautiful home needs a beautiful mortgage Whether you are buying your first home, next home or need to remortgage, look no further than SPF Private Clients for specialist mortgage advice. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage. There will be a fee for mortgage advice. The precise amount will depend upon your circumstances and loan amount. We estimate that the fee will be 0.67% of the amount borrowed.

LAST WORD Tim Harrison, Associate, Knight Frank Esher Residential Sales Describe your property career to date. My property career began rather hastily in 2004, three days after my interview for Foxtons in Battersea. The market was flying and the learning curve was very, very steep. Sealed bids, attended exchanges and lease extensions are my memories from those days. After two years at Foxtons I jumped ship to work for Peter Rollings at the newly acquired Marsh & Parsons, again in Battersea and latterly in Notting Hill, where we navigated through the turbulent waters of the financial crisis years. The onset of family life in the end pushed me out of South West London to leafy Esher and Knight Frank. What do you enjoy most about your job and what have been the highlights? For me I love the variety in my day to day life. Some days I never see the office for being out and about valuing and viewing houses, on others it is heavy desk work and negotiations to make sure the deals are closed and everyone is happy. Describe the biggest challenges. It feels like there are significantly more chains around at the moment which makes the job

more difficult due to having less control over matters on related sales. What advice would you give to anyone considering a career in estate agency? Take a degree in psychology in preparation for the work ahead! Estate agency is more than just matching buyers to sellers, the real skill is in the successful management of large number of groups with one common goal. For me the successful exchange of contracts is the reason I love the job. What advice do you have for homebuyers in the current market? Be honest with yourself on price and try to objectively put yourself in the shoes of the buyer. In the current market, unrealistic pricing at the outset will most likely lead to a much lower price down the line. What sets North Surrey apart? Easy access to both central London and the stunning Surrey Countryside. What do you think lies ahead for the North Surrey market? I think we are in for a few ups and downs as the Brexit negotiations continue. However,

I am confident, given the historically low interest rates, that North Surrey will remain buoyant as it has so much to offer buyers moving out from central London. Recent highs, recent lows? High – this has to be the recent conclusion of a three-link chain of houses all sold by Knight Frank Esher. The deal was 18 months in the making and survived the Brexit vote, bad surveys, down valuations and many bank delays. Everyone was genuinely delighted to finally move into their new home. The low has to be the fact it took 18 months! What is your top location in North Surrey? I love the old fashioned non-commercial feel of Bridge Road in East Molesey. The independent cafés and the stunning river Thames make it a great place to be on a Sunday morning. If you were not an estate agent, what career would you choose and why? If I was a little more creative I would love to have been an extreme sports photographer shooting in wild natural locations around the world, or if I was being more sensible an architect.

Palace Road, East Molesey, Surrey Located on one of East Molesey’s finest roads and close to Hampton Court and the River Thames, this impressive and spacious home offers balanced accommodation over three floors. Six bedrooms, three bathrooms and three reception rooms, including a large kitchen/breakfast room, with off-street parking and a garage.
