Holland Park estate agent goes the extra 460 miles!
Katy Brennan, the Sales Manager in Jackson Stops & Staff's Holland Park office went more than the extra mile. In fact she went all the way over to Switzerland on behalf of one of her clients! Says Katy: "We were marketing the penthouse apartment in the historic Grade II* Halsey Ricardo House, Melbury Road W14 last year with sales.

However, after a few months of it being on the market the owner decided to let it instead, through Jackson Stops & Staff.Whilst it was let, the owner received planning permission to reconfigure it and add another roof terrace with a retractable roof, making it useful living space for both summer and winter. "Having kept in contact with the owner whilst the property had been let, I was invited to Geneva to discuss the marketing strategy going forwards and to finalise instructions for its sale. The owner resides in Geneva and wanted to show me the property portfolio which he has out there." This 2,658 sq ft penthouse forms part of an historic building designed by the architect Halsey Ricardo.

The property benefits from a resident porter, direct lift access, three double bedrooms all with en-suite bath/shower rooms, kitchen and a wonderfully light and spacious reception room with direct access to a terrace. The property comes with a separate one bedroom, self-contained flat and two lock-up garages, providing a total of 3,411 sq ft. Melbury Road is situated close to High Street Kensington and moments from the open spaces of Holland Park.
