A lot of people are drawn to the apartments and houses in the London area because they are attracted to older period properties. There is something about period properties that more modern properties simply don’t have. They have a sense of longevity , of being built to last, as well as a sense of really impressive design. More contemporary buildings seem to lack this particular appeal.
If you are attracted by the period properties in London then you may want to focus your attention on property renovation in the city. When you are hoping to buy somewhere to live in London, particularly Chelsea, Kensington and Mayfair and period properties are the only ones on your radar, it is vital that you are open to the idea of making an investment on a property and then renovating in order to preserve its appeal.
This is because many of the period houses and apartments in the city are in need of sprucing up. The original features are there but they need significant attention in order to get them back to their best. Restoring a property in this way is incredibly rewarding but it is even better if you are planning on living there in the future.
