The Brief

The forever family home!

To find a long-term family home on the edge of prime Cotswolds village with good train links to London.

How we Helped

Qualified advice on pricing!

My clients were the first in to see this when it launched on the open market, it having previously been privately available at too high a price. My clients recognised it immediately as the house for them. Their ability to make this crucial decision was helped by an earlier tour of several houses which provided vital context. We paid a slight premium (but still within a sensible price range) in order to gain exclusivity and prevent further scheduled viewings. Prior to exchange we instructed a planning consultant to provide comfort against a potential planning risk I had identified on the neighbouring field. The potential of this house, combined with its position on a quiet lane on the edge of one of the Cotswolds’ prime towns within walking distance of a mainline train station, meant it amply covered the brief.

Johannes says

"We found this house within a month of being instructed, and so the priority was to make sure it was the right one and we were not rushing into it with any hidden problems, a challenge when we were being asked to exchange within 2 weeks. The whole process was helped by having extremely charming clients who trusted my advice and all obstacles were identified and carefully overcome. "

Client says

"Johannes was hired by Antonia and me to find us a house, with a very vague briefing and a 9 month time frame and slightly too little money to get our dream. It was one of the best client experiences I've had in any field; and long story short - he bought our Charlbury house about 2 months later. Our house (I think) would have sold instantly. Johannes ensured we were the first and only bid and guided the whole process perfectly. Total cut above. "
