Far East to West (Sussex)

Our client, a Hong Kong based family, were looking to move to the UK in the summer of 2023 in time for the new school year.

They were looking for a family property that was between 4000-6000 sq. ft. of accommodation with gated access and south-facing gardens. One of the most important priorities for the client was finding a property that included a self-contained annexe or the ability to easily add one for an elderly relative.

Ideally the property would be located in a quiet village within walking distance of amenities and would be within a 20 minute drive from the local independent schools, and a train station that provided direct access to London.

How we helped

Through our strong local network and professional relationships, we were able to successfully source a beautifully presented off-market family home occupying a stunning edge of village location with panoramic southerly views over the South Downs National Park.

The property perfectly matched the exacting specifications of our client and included enough space within the existing footprint to create a self-contained annexe with minimal fuss.

Due to our client’s commitments, they were unable to view the property in person but had full confidence in the purchase through our extensive due diligence and feedback from family members living nearby.

Working with a solicitor and surveyor from our network of trusted partners, contracts were exchanged within a few weeks.  Our client saw the property for the very first time on completion day, and were absolutely delighted, spending the rest of the Summer enjoying their new home.

Peter of GL & Co said

“Having recently completed a country house sale in West Sussex whilst working alongside Stephen, I have to say, he was the most professional counterpart I have ever come across in over 20 years within the industry.

“House sales of this nature, (a private off-market sale to a foreign buyer), take a great deal of skill, negotiation, and management, and working alongside Stephen on this transaction, he was the consummate professional with a fantastic knowledge of the conveyance process and what was needed for an extremely smooth transaction.

“I look forward to hopefully working with Stephen once again at some point in the future.”
