London Period Property
Our offices are open and operating on an appointment only basis, with physical viewings and valuations taking place in line with our guidelines. This is the case across both our sales and lettings departments.
Jackson-Stops opened its first London office in 1924 in response to the increasing number of clients looking to buy, sell or rent “a place in town”. By the turn of the 20th century, there had been a massive growth in house building in the capital with not only opulent mansions but elegant squares and terraces. Many of these buildings now form Conservation Areas or are protected Listed Buildings.
Jackson-Stops’ clients value the expertise and specialist knowledge of historic buildings that we have developed over decades.
The Changing Face of London
The period properties in London are what make the Capital so recognisable across the globe. However, over the last 75 years, there have been vast changes; the untold loss of buildings during the Second World War saw a program of rapid rebuilding and more recently many of these properties have been demolished to make way for new blocks, pushing ever upward into the London skyline. There has also been a trend to redevelop period properties with only the facades being retained. Today, London’s residential property almost falls into two categories: period or contemporary.
Jackson-Stops has been instrumental in the work to save the Georgian houses in Spitalfields for over 40 years and they have now become some of the most desirable buildings in London. We have also acted for clients buying and selling Georgian houses across Mayfair and the West End as well as in Westminster, Pimlico, Knightsbridge, and Chelsea where some of the best examples of properties developed in the 19th century are found. Post-1840 saw the building not just of classic houses but also the advent of spacious purpose-built apartment blocks. The value of these buildings, their spacious proportions and the spirit of tradition is what we aim to promote and help buyers and tenants identify the right property for them.
Expert Advice and Research
Research into the history of a specific building or immediate area, together with our understanding of architecture, is at the core of what we do when working with period properties. Since the publication of our first Guide to Listed Building Legislation, we have been providing our clients with practical advice on period properties and Conservation Areas. We firmly believe that as London’s period properties have gradually declined in number, demand has increased and the Capital’s built heritage should be protected and enjoyed for generations to come.
