Quickest Property Exchange of the Year in Knightsbridge

In what could be the quickest exchange of the year, it took just six and a half hours from the offer being received to contracts being exchanged for a home in Knightsbridge, London.

The property is a Grade II Listed freehold in Brompton Square, but needs updating.

The agents, Wellbelove Quested, reports that the sale is to a foreign investor.

Andrew Quested says: “We were able to find the right buyer who exchanged on the property in an exceptionally quick time period.

“It has to be the fastest exchange of contracts this year. A brilliant result for our client and both vendor and purchaser are very happy.”

The 2,715 square foot home was on the market for £5,750,000 and boasts an English Heritage blue plaque stating that Parisian poet Stephen Mallarme lived there in 1863.

Quested adds: “After an exceptionally quiet August, there was a last minute flurry of activity on the property, showing confidence in the property market is returning and things are looking up.”1
