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

One-Bedroom Home Goes on Market for £3.75m

On a quiet street in Knightsbridge is Tutti Frutti, the one-bedroom property with a huge price tag.

Londoners will be quite aware that you don’t get much for your money in the capital, but this house takes the crisis to another level, as it has gone onto the market for a huge £3.75m.

The extravagant home could be the world’s most expensive one-bedroom house due to its massive asking price.

Described as an “exquisite bijou mews house”1, the property was designed by interior decorator Federica Palacios. The walls and floor of the garage are purple and the kitchen has been painted in bright stripes.

Over three floors, the home surprisingly boasts a double garage, utility room, reception room and shower room. However, it does have just the one bedroom, which is unconventional for any house.

At £3.75m, the property is around ten times more expensive than the average home in London and just half the price of Wentworth Woodhouse stately home, which is 150 times bigger.

The 1,200 square foot home was put on the market by Jeremy Davidson Property Consultants and is being sold with the furnishings and fittings. It is a short walk from Harrods and Hyde Park.

Property expert Henry Pryor says that Tutti Frutti would be a perfect home for pop star Prince or the ideal headquarters for portal Zoopla.

Pryor continues: “Either would surely be delighted to find themselves in this violet Knightsbridge den. It is in one of the most fashionable parts of London, close to the best shops, the coolest restaurants and would surely make some trustafarian daughter very happy.

“Most people would opt for two years at the Savoy Hotel, which the Stamp Duty alone would pay for. But no doubt there is someone with the decorating taste of Peter Stringfellow who will fall in love with the location and the style.”1
