Malvern Court, SW7 (sold)

This 1,198 sq ft 2 bed/1 bath apartment was acquired in December 2013.  Located on the 2nd floor of a prestigious South Kensington mansion block, the flat had a very short lease of only 13 years and was badly laid out and in need of modernisation.

After lengthening the lease by 90 years, internal space was reorganised: living room enlarged by extending into the second bedroom; installation of an en-suite into the master bed; creation of a second bedroom from the dining room; creation of a third single bedroom in place of the shared bathroom; enlargement of the cloakroom into a new shared shower room; and extension of the kitchen into the store to create a dining area.

High-quality fixtures, fittings and furnishings were used throughout and the work was completed in August 2014.  The property was initially rented then sold in December 2015 for £2,475,000.
