Weekly roundup: Friday 30 October

Whether it’s to do with buying, selling, letting, or renting, the property market is always awash with inspiring, crazy, or scary stories – all of which have entertained the Kingsley Hamilton Estates team this week. 

If you’re an avid viewer of the BBC’s ‘The Apprentice’, you may be envious of the lavish houses that the contestants retire to at the end of a long day in the boardroom with Sir Alan Sugar. Well, now, Zoopla has provided the answer by way of research. This year’s finalists are residing in a five-storey Georgian family home that boasts five en suite bedrooms – with a fun and quirky décor – tucked away in Holborn’s upmarket John Street.

If you fancy renting the property, you’ll be looking at near to £17,000 a month if figures taken from last October’s listing are to be believed. For buyers, get ready to stump up a staggering £7.6 million! For the rest of us, however, we’ll stick to looking at the pictures and watching the show for glimpses of the house.

Remaining on the topic of entertainment, are you a fan of James Bond and looking forward to watching Spectre this weekend? If so, you’ll be pleased to know that you can now partly emulate 007’s lifestyle as the safe house used by the cast and crew, in between shooting scenes for the latest film, is now up for sale at a cool £1.25 million.

Located on the riverside in South-west London, the development boats spectacular skyline views – worthy of any Bond who likes his martini shaken, not stirred.

In the lead up to Halloween, there has been news of haunted houses, cinemas, and tube stations. So in honour of tomorrow, we’ve compiled a Pinterest board of gorgeous London townhouses – but with their minimalistic black and white colour palette, we believe they’d create the ideal setting for a spooky story or two! Check out our collection here.
