A 10,000 sq ft flat in One Hyde Park, London’s biggest rental deal last year, and the whole top floor of 20 Grosvenor Square (all 8,000sq ft of it) bought for ‘something north of £50 million’ were among the stand-out transactions at Lichfields last year. ‘Otherwise, we had 11 acquisitions with a combined value of just shy of £95 million, our second-best year,’ says the former Spear’s Young Property Adviser of the Year. ‘We still haven’t cracked the one hundred, but we’re getting closer.’ Lichfields’ success despite low stock levels, ‘too high’ prices, hiked-up stamp duty rates and uncertainty following Brexit is in large part due to its focus, which is sourcing off-plan new builds for a largely international client base buying for investment.
