Press Release: Lords and Queens: The value of a room with a view
Mon 13 Jun 2011
Londons sporting calendar is drawing international attention to both Lords and Queens Tennis Club this week, and demand for properties in these areas have risen in value by 2.7% and 6% respectively in the last year alone, according to Marsh & Parsons.*
Demand for property in the St Johns Wood area has pushed the value of the average home in the area to around 906,000, while cricket fans looking to live on the same road as the Home of Cricket can typically pay a premium of at least 6% for a home with a view of the ground.**"Cricket fans have been flocking to Lords for the Sri Lanka test but buyers looking for a property with a view of the ground face a premium. Property near Lords is highly sought after, and weve been seeing around 13 buyers register in the area for every home placed on the market."***
However, for avid cricket fans, there are shorter-term alternatives close to the ground. Marsh & Parsons has a three-bedroom apartment for rent for 795 per week in Addison House, just a 30 second stroll from Lords. Please see the Marsh & Parsons website here for more details.
Many eyes will also turn to Queens Tennis Club this week, and the area has been in strong demand in 2011 from both domestic and international home buyers. A typical 3 bedroom property in Queens Club Terrace is currently selling for upwards of 780,000.****
For tennis fans looking to buy property with a prime view of the June tournament, Marsh & Parsons currently has a spacious 2 bedroom mansion flat in Queens Club Mansions on the market for 660,000. The flat boasts a balcony overlooking the Tennis club for grandstand views of the summer tournament. Please see the Marsh & Parsons website here for more information.
For a larger family, Marsh & Parsons are also marketing a three bedroom flat in Tennyson Mansions in Queens Club Gardens for 559,000 just moments from Queens Club. For more information on the property, please visit the Marsh & Parsons website here.
Peter Rollings, CEO of Marsh & Parsons said "Wimbledon may dominate many of the headlines during the summer, but the annual focus on the tournament at Queens always provides excellent publicity for the area, and proximity to Queens Club has a fantastic extra appeal to buyers. But its not just tennis fans competing for homes in the area. The area has really been in demand from both international buyers looking for the kudos of a prime postcode - but also from domestic cash buyers in recent months as city workers look to invest their bonuses in West Londons bricks and mortar."
