Because assets are multi-faceted, BARNES London supports its clients with a dedicated, BARNES Exclusive Properties & Private Office department providing customised, bespoke services to manage the clients’ estate.
The network-based structure of BARNES, established in over 20 countries and 60 destinations, allows us to find a match for all properties over £5 million, whether luxury penthouses or private mansions in major international capitals, manors or châteaux in the most stunning regions, chalets on the ski slopes or oceanfront villas, hunting estates and even golf courses.
The London market, considered an international benchmark for a number of decades, is by nature a special case, a status that has been compounded since 2016 with the outcome of the Brexit referendum.
Prices per sq.m in London are much higher than other European capitals, with the ‘luxury’ sector starting from £10 million (around €11 million).
The BARNES London team is on hand to provide its clients with a comprehensive range of services and consulting to make sure their move to or investment in the UK capital is a success. Notably by putting them in touch with the best solicitors and finance experts, given that the paperwork involved in a property transaction is a complex procedure in London, and that costs can be above those generally found in the rest of Europe.
London is a very extensive city (spanning over 150,000 hectares or 388,400 acres, twice the size of Berlin and fifteen times that of Paris), which is where this notion of bespoke services comes into play. Depending on the neighbourhood, whether it’s a home to move into straight away or to rent out, a pied-à-terre or family residence, a long-term investment or as part of a capital transfer, no two cases are the same!
BARNES Exclusive Properties & Private Office coordinates all the strategic and commercial actions for its clients’ projects in London.
When it comes to real estate, yachting, contemporary art and vineyards, the BARNES London team is able to handle all projects for its international clientèle, whether resident or not in the UK, in particular thanks to its concept store at 113-115 Old Brompton Road, in South Kensington.
Whether in London, Paris, Geneva, Monaco, New York, Miami, Los Angeles or Moscow, we provide a global and exclusive service that is both comprehensive and personalised. In addition to luxury international realty, we focus on three passions Londoners hold dear: yachting, vineyards and art.
Consultants dedicated to each of these realms (BARNES Art Advisory, BARNES Yachts and BARNES Vineyards Investment) are on-site regularly, in between exhibitions, tasting sessions for wines from the estates up for sale, and events to present the latest in the world of yachting.
