It’s Open House again!

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , — JSS London @ 9:51 am

This weekend is when some of London’s finest buildings throw their doors open to the public in the annual London Open House event, allowing us all a wonderful opportunity to glimpse inside some of the most architecturally intriguing and historically important buildings across the capital and its environs.  Here at Jackson-Stops & Staff, we’ve been looking at what’s on offer to view and thought we would give you a flavour of what you can expect to see in some of our office locations:

In the City, our sister company, Frank Harris & Company, is marketing a property in the Barbican Centre, an iconic building which is featuring a property in the Open House event this weekend.

…so if you are planning to view this property, why not check out our contemporary apartment located nearby.

If you’re visiting an open house in Holland Park, why not take a few minutes out to view a couple of our latest lettings instructions in the vicinity:

…over to our Pimlico office and our Lettings Director, Georgina Clarke, was delighted to see that the building she climbed to the top of last year has made it into this year’s Open House list:

While you’re in the area, why not arrange a viewing for this lovely house, on the market in Westmoreland Place (the Westmoreland Triangle backs on to Peabody Avenue)

Valuable tips on moving home

Filed under: Latest News — JSS London @ 1:10 pm

Before you start

A bit of forwarding planning before moving day will ensure a smooth transition. Consider what you don’t need to take with you, what will need careful packing, and that you are covered for potential breakages.

  • Make a priority packing list.
  • Take some time to sift through your belongings and have a clear-out. You can make up a box for charity and if you’ve time, hold a car boot sale or log onto an online auction, then put the proceeds of your sold goods towards some re-decorating or a new carpet.
  • Calculate how many boxes you will need and get these well in advance. Find boxes in a variety of sizes. Think about what else will be useful, such as strong tape, bubble wrap, and self-seal bags for keeping nuts and bolts together. Save old newspapers for lining boxes.
  • Don’t completely fill large boxes, as they will be too heavy to move.
  • Use sturdy packing boxes, particularly for heavier items, or your belongings may end up strewn all over the pavement. Boxes made from corrugated cardboard are stronger than regular ones. You can usually find these at supermarkets, off-licences or large retail stores, but make sure that they are clean.
  • Check that your contents insurance will cover damage and breakages during the move.
  • Put all hazardous materials, such as paint, bleach and aerosols, into a separate box and keep them away from the rest of your belongings.

Think ahead

Unless you travel light, you won’t be able to unpack everything in the first day, so it’s worth deciding what you might need easy access to soon after you cross the threshold of your new home.

  • Pack an ‘essentials’ box for the first night in your new home and carry it with you. Instant access to coffee, tea, snacks, cups and a kettle may be welcome soon after you arrive. As will plates, utensils and a kitchen cloth.
  • Prepare an overnight bag for everyone in the family, and make sure that there is enough toilet paper and toiletries for everyone.
  • Other useful items that should be kept close to hand are a torch, a first-aid kit including pain relievers, pencil and paper, and re-closable plastic bags, along with a small tool kit.
  • If possible, finish any laundry well before you move to avoid packing damp clothes. Keep a separate box/bag for dirty washing.
  • Make sure the boxes containing items you need the least are loaded up first.

Sensible packing

Spend some time considering how you are going to pack your possessions. Books are easy but heavy, valuables need careful wrapping and will take time, and some furniture may need to be dismantled.

  • Start early. Packing always takes longer than anticipated, particularly when you start reminiscing over old photographs stored in the attic or you realise that you need to dismantle the wardrobe to get it downstairs.
  • Begin at the top of the house and move downwards. If you have an attic, it’s a good idea to sort it out first.
  • Always pack heavy items in small boxes. It will make transporting them easier. Also, keep the weight of all boxes to a minimum to avoid any back injuries.
  • Pack one room at a time, clearly labelling each box with details of its contents and the room to which it belongs. Clearly label boxes that contain breakables and also those that are load-bearing and can be stacked in the van.
  • Keep all boxes for each room together. This will save time unpacking.
  • It may sound obvious but pack heavier items on the bottom of the box and lighter items on top.
  • Wrap items individually and place in a box that’s been lined with several layers of newspaper and a sheet of bubble wrap. Any breakables should also be wrapped in bubble wrap. Use clean tissue or wrapping paper for the first layer to prevent newspaper print leaving marks. Pillows and blankets are also useful for wrapping valuables and protecting furniture prone to dents and scratches.
  • Pack important documents together, such as birth and marriage certificates, and keep them in a safe place.

Back to school

Filed under: Latest News — JSS London @ 1:04 pm

back to schoolAs every London parent knows, the summer holidays can pass by in a blur of carefully scheduled activities, noisy play dates and slightly chaotic mealtimes; in amongst this, many of us manage to squeeze in a week or two away before the daily reality of the school and work routine begins again in September. Whilst many of us dream of living a less hectic lifestyle (and up to 75% of us have considered an alternative way of life after returning from holiday), research just published shows that buying a home within the catchment of highly rated state schools in the south east can prove an excellent financial investment. The research, just published by Lloyds Bank, has found that living close to a highly-rated state secondary school adds an average of 21,000 to house prices, with the average priced home selling for 268,000, compared to the average national house price of 247,000*. However, these figures increase considerably when looking at the south-east specifically, where competition for school places within certain catchment areas remains fierce; in this region, houses within these areas sell at an average price of 27% above the national average house price achieved in the rest of the county. At Jackson-Stops & Staff, our teams are well-versed in the importance of schools for parents when registering families looking to buy or rent a home; the areas we cover across London and Surrey are often pinpointed by families specifically because of the excellent quality of state and private schooling they provide. Whilst we would always recommend discussing catchment areas with the schools themselves, we are happy to offer advice and help in any way we can. With just a few days remaining to sew in the name badges and break in the new shoes before the new term begins, it is perhaps good to remember that buying a home in these areas can prove both a valuable start to your child’s education and also an astute property investment.

The flat is just off Parliament Square and Bird Cage Walk, close to the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre and Central Hall Westminster – the perfect corporate location.

A truly golden location indeed.

Cooking up a storm in Teddington!

I spy…next door’s got a new kitchen

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , — JSS London @ 10:14 am

Man-looking-through-binoculars-600x256It won’t surprise anyone who has noticed the high number of property shows on TV, but a new survey by furniture retailer Made.com reveals that our obsession with other people’s homes shows no sign of abating. One in every ten of us admits to having viewed a property with no intention of buying it…and surprise, surprise, the practice is most common in the London market.

 

Some 19% of Londoners have posed as a ‘potential buyer’ in the capital, in order to take a peek around a property; one in 20 of us has even used binoculars or a camera to see inside a neighbour’s house, the survey has found. Many admit they have walked the ‘long way home’  just so they can look through a window, whilst others have snooped around a neighbour’s home or garden without their knowledge. For those aged between 16 and 24, however, there are other opportunities to look around a neighbour’s home without them knowing: some 35% of that age group take unofficial tours during a party or when they are meant to be looking after a pet. The survey polled 1,000 people age 16-24.  (Source: Metro London July 2014).

As you can see from the photos, Mums and Dads had great fun flipping burgers on the stall, which raised a fantastic amount of money for the school’s PTA.

The grass is always greener?

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , — JSS London @ 11:20 am

gardengardenJackson-Stops & Staff was extremely proud to sponsor one of the seven concept gardens at the 2014 Hampton Court Flower Show, which opened with a preview evening on the 7th July, ahead of the main show opening to the public on 8th July.

The theme for the concept gardens this year was the seven deadly sins and  Jackson-Stops & Staff were sponsoring Marcus Green’s garden, representing envy, which was entitled The Grass Is Always Greener.

garden

The garden depicted a beautiful unmown meadow with wild flowers and grasses.  At its centre was the perfect lawn so many gardens envy, but perfection comes as a price and the perfect neatly clipped lawn protected by a Perspex box was in fact made of artificial grass.  The artificial lawn demonstrated how true perfection can never be achieved; many visitors who saw the garden told our staff who were manning our stand that they considered true beauty to be in the natural meadow planting, as opposed to the idea of a perfect lawn.

We were absolutely delighted when Marcus Green achieved a silver medal for his design.
