After more than a year of the pandemic, you’d be forgiven for daydreaming about escaping it all and disappearing to a property on an exclusive island with a private beach.

There may be a few barriers in your way to doing that somewhere like the Caribbean though, not least not being a member of the global super-rich. 

But an island property closer to home may be an option – and that’s where a five-bedroom house for sale in Surrey’s Sunbury-on-Thames comes in, although at nearly £2.5million you will still need deep pockets.

The luxury home is on the private island of Wheatleys Eyot and can be accessed by car via its own bridge. It sits in three acres of land on the River Thames and has a 350 metre river frontage.

You will still need to be a millionaire however, as while the property doesn’t have a price tag that stretches into tens of millions, it does still stand at £2.45million, ruling the majority out of buying this island pad.

It is hardly surprising that such a luxury home comes with a swimming pool, poolside bar, a sauna and a gym.

The property has also been completely renovated and has four bedrooms in the main house along with a one-bedroom guest annexe that has been used by the current owners as an Airbnb.

Annexes are attractive financially because buying a home with a qualifying annexe can reduce the amount of stamp duty you pay by potentially tens of thousands of pounds.

Outside, there are outbuildings – including a stable block and a garage – as well as an orchard. It also has a 62 foot mooring and its own private beach.

It has good access to amenities and transport links, including being two miles from Walton high street and 1.5 miles from both the M3 motorway and Sunbury train station, which offers a 25 minute train journey into London’s Waterloo station.

Sunbury-on-Thames is a small town in Surrey with parks, pubs, and restaurants. There are plenty of leisure activities in the area with a number of health clubs, golf courses, and rowing clubs, as well as racing at Kempton Park.

The average price of a property in Wheatleys Eyot is £618,715, almost double the national average of £341,117, according to property website Zoopla. 

Soren Ravaux, of Waterview – the estate agent handling the sale – said: ‘Wheatleys Eyot is particularly special due to its considerable grounds and luxury features which are hard to come by.’

Allsop, acting jointly alongside Anton Page, has completed the sale of the freehold of a Grade A workspace in Aldgate, central London, on behalf of Maurice Investments for €30.3m (£26m). Acquired by Meadow Partners, the price is equivalent to approximately €1120 (£960) per ft² and a net initial yield of 5%.

 

Wool + Tailor, 10-12 Alie Street E1, comprises 27,158ft² of Grade A office and ancillary accommodation over nine floors. It is within a three-minute walk of Aldgate station and a 15-minute walk of six further train and underground stations, including Whitechapel which is on the newly opened Elizabeth line, and is multi-let to five tenants. Maurice Investments had initially acquired the building in an off-market deal advised by Allsop, which also went on to conclude a successful leasing campaign alongside Anton Page.

 

Wool + Tailor was redeveloped in 2019 to include two additional floors and a new façade, with BREEAM “very good” and EPC A and B ratings. It features an eco-friendly biodiverse roof, cycle racks to accommodate up to 36 bikes, and a WiredScore Gold certification with fibre optic internet. Wool + Tailor further benefits from outstanding natural light throughout, which is enhanced by floor-to-ceiling heights of up to 3.3 metres, and a 7th floor communal business lounge with dual aspect terraces offering panoramic views of the City and beyond.

 

Matthew Millman, Partner at Allsop, said: “The sale of Wool + Tailor concludes a highly successful business plan for our client where we advised on the off-market acquisition, letting, then disposal of what has become one of the finest buildings in Aldgate. Wool + Tailor satisfies the requirements of the modern investor and occupier for ‘best in class’ office space with strong ESG credentials, excellent connectivity and plentiful nearby cafes, bars and restaurants.”

Barratt and David Wilson invest €45.5m in UK resi market

Voice Of EU

Harworth Group plc has sold two residential land parcel at its Waverley and Thoresby Vale developments to Barratt and David Wilson Homes, for a total consideration of €45.5m (£39m).

 

At Waverley in South Yorkshire, Harworth has competed a €33.8 (£29m) land sale which will see the delivery of approximately 450 homes, of which over 30% will be affordable. This represents Harworth’s largest-ever serviced residential land sale by number of plots. The new homes will represent Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ fifth phase at the site and will be situated adjacent to both Highwall Park and the Waverley Lake, benefitting from unique water frontage in an area of the development known as Waverley Waterfront. Construction will follow a bespoke design code, devised in partnership between Harworth and Barratt and David Wilson Homes, that complements the existing Waverley development while maximising the amenity value of the area’s waterfront location. The development will include a pedestrianised promenade, further enhancing the site’s placemaking and connectivity.

 

At Thoresby Vale in Nottinghamshire, Harworth has exchanged on the sale of serviced land capable of delivering 174 homes, for €11.6m (£10m). This represents the second phase of the Thoresby Vale development, following the sale of two land parcels at the site to Harron Homes and Barratt and David Wilson Homes in 2019 and 2020 respectively. Alongside the new homes, Barratt and David Wilson Homes will provide a new surface water attenuation pond and a multi-use path and associated landscaping, which will enhance connectivity and link to the site’s planned primary school and local centre, for which site preparation works are currently underway. The sales conclude an active first half for Harworth’s residential developments, during which over 100% of its budgeted residential land sales for the year were completed, exchanged or under offer, and it also launched its first single-family Build to Rent portfolio.

 

Andrew Blackshaw, Chief Operating Officer at Harworth, commented: “Barratt and David Wilson Homes is a trusted and valued partner to Harworth, and we are pleased to be developing our relationship with these two significant land sales. Harworth is particularly well-placed in volatile markets as our serviced land provides housebuilders with a product which is de-risked and ready to build on from day one. The acceleration of both our Waverley and Thoresby Vale sites will see Harworth stepping through its strategy to take advantage of the placemaking and levelling up that these schemes ultimately bring to these communities. In addition, these sales will enhance the maturation of these socially diverse neighbourhoods when delivered alongside our recently launched single family Build to Rent product, Project Spur.”

 

Ed Catchpole, Joint Regional Director for Yorkshire & Central at Harworth, added: “Barratt and David Wilson Homes has a proven track record of high-quality housing delivery at Harworth sites, and these transactions will help to further accelerate the build-out and placemaking at Waverley and Thoresby Vale. Both sites are also set to benefit from additional investment which will see the creation of new Build to Rent homes and local amenities.”

 

Mark Cotes, Managing Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Midlands, said: “We’re thrilled to have secured the land for an extension to our Thoresby Vale development and will look forward to another opportunity to meet the growing demand for housing in Nottinghamshire. Our growing community in Edwinstowe will continue to provide new jobs for local people and we’ll be making further ecological and financial investments as the development progresses.”
