Amersham EXCLUSIVE: Budget busting home requests
Tue 01 Dec 2015
Roof terraces strong enough to take a helicopter's weight, squash courts in the basement and car galleries to display vehicle collections are among some of the most extravagant homebuyer requests recently fielded by London estate agents Marsh & Parsons. They have also dealt with enquiries from prospective owners and tenants looking for recording studios. panic rooms, staff living quarters and swimming pools or hot tubs. Overall,the most popular property requirements are more traditional. Aside from the usual number of bedrooms. south-facing outdoor space is the most common request in London property searches. closely followed by off-street parking and separate home offices or studios. The holy trinity of transport links. shops and London parks show no signs of being toppled as the top three amenities buyers want to be close to. Meanwhile, wooden flooring is de rigueur. with almost a third of agents identifying it as the most popular interiors style trend at the moment. just ahead of bi-fold doors.
