Woolwich SE18

Extending the length of an entire street and set behind historic brick walls, Rushgrove House is as close to an urban oasis as we’ve ever come across. Extending to almost 4 acres, the property comprises an attractive Grade II Listed Georgian house and picturesque 2 acre pond. The house was constructed c1815 as the private residence of the Artillery Commander, whilst the pond served as an important emergency water supply for the adjacent barracks. Concerned that the marketing of their family home of over 30 years might be beyond the expertise of a local residential agent, we were appointed by the sellers to manage the disposal. A high profile local, regional and national marketing campaign was employed resulting in the busiest block viewings we’ve experienced. The deadline for offers attracted a host of bids; the majority of which were ahead of the published guide. Our client ultimately accepted an offer £125,000 higher than he anticipated, and the deal to a local developer was concluded within just 5 working days. In challenging market conditions it is vitally important that the correct marketing strategy is employed in order to maximise value.
