The EA Shaw sales team have been working across a much wider central London area recently; with properties to sell in Fitzrovia, Clerkenwell, Soho and even as far west as Mayfair and south of the river! Craig Simpson, Sales Manager at EA Shaw says:
“Vendors outside of the West End want Covent Garden buyers exposed to their properties and are looking for a fresh set of purchasers who may not know about areas outside of theatreland. EA Shaw have recently sold a one bedroom apartment in Wells Street, Fitzrovia for £500,000; the apartment went to highest bids with five buyers interested at the point of sale.
The property was situated in Furnival Mansions, a block built at the turn of the century by theatre owners who did not want their staff staying in Soho and being lured by its ‘vices’. Fitzrovia is quieter and set back from the hustle and bustle. It seems, over a hundred years later, the same thing is happening and some central London buyers are swapping the vibrancy of Soho for the serenity of Fitzrovia, Clerkenwell and the Southbank.”
EA Shaw have also just sold a five bedroom freehold house in Chesterfield Hill for £5,725,000 and have recently been instructed to sell a 17th century two bedroom house on the Southbank.
