Project Summary

In collaboration with Savills, our team at Landwood Group successfully sold the historic 17th-century estate, Bulstrode Park, well above the guide price. 

Drawing on our expertise in maximising property value and our extensive investor network, we ensured a seamless process. This was underpinned by meticulous valuation, engaging in targeted outreach to high-end investors and offering strategic guidance. 

This approach secured multiple offers within two months of listing and achieved a swift transaction overall.

The Challenge

The challenge lay in navigating through various construction issues and dilapidations due to the property’s age and partial completion of the redevelopment. As well as attracting investors willing to cover significant development costs to transform it into a profitable asset and liaising with a very niche pool of overseas buyers.

Landwood Group’s Strategy

Our team employed a partner-led strategy tailored to the property’s uniqueness and client requirements. We emphasised the property’s historic significance and potential for development to attract ideal investors. By positioning the property in the market with an appropriate guide price to appeal to the right investors, we secured optimal value for all parties involved. 

We also employed premium and targeted marketing techniques to maintain exclusivity and secure interest among highly selective investor groups. This was joined by extensive due diligence, including building surveys, environmental assessments, and legal preparations, to reassure investors of the property’s viability as an investment opportunity.

The Results

Sold Significantly Over Guide Price
