Malvern Court, SW7 (sold)

Located on the ground floor of a mansion block on Onslow Square in South Kensington, this 1,236 sq ft, 3 bed apartment was in relatively good condition when purchased in March 2013 on a short lease.

A lease extension was obtained to increase from 16 years to 106 years and a light refurbishment carried out, including redecorating, upgrading some of the fixtures, fittings and units, renovating the flooring, and completely refurnishing.

The property was let for 1 year whilst the freeholders carried out major works to the building and returned to the sales market, achieving a sales price of £2,000,000.
