Harrods Estates showcasing in Qatar
Harrods Estates, the luxury real estate arm of the Harrods Group, announced it will be showcasing an exclusive selection of prime London properties specifically tailored to the Qatari market, including both on and off-market investment opportunities at the Four Seasons, in Doha from Friday 28th May to 4th June.
Harrods Estates has a long established relationship with Qatar and will be taking a team of four property professionals over to the Middle East to visit their valued clients who they have visited many times over the past eight years. Harrods Estates recently reported that one third of all buyers in Knightsbridge, Mayfair and London come from the Middle East with the Qatari market forming a large percentage of that total.
Mark Collins, Managing Director of Harrods Estates comments: "Qatar has always been a key market for Harrods Estates which is why we have continued to visit the region year after year. The selection of prestigious properties we are exhibiting here has been carefully selected to match the needs and desires of Qatari purchasers looking to find the perfect home or investment opportunity in London. Furthermore the weakened British pound now means that London property is around 15 per cent cheaper for Qatari buyers compared to six months ago."
Harrods Estates will also be hosting an exclusive cocktail party at the Ritz Carlton Sharq Village to launch a collection of the most desirable new residences in London, and will be showcasing an exclusive off-market opportunity for buyers to purchase a stunning residence within one of London's most outstanding new landmark buildings – The Tower, One St George Wharf by prestigious developer St George. Launching in the UK later this year, The Tower is perfectly positioned on the River Thames to offer breath-taking panoramic views of London including the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. The impressive Tower marks the final phase of the award-winning St George Wharf in Vauxhall and is set to become one of the capital's most sought-after addresses.
Some of the properties that will be available are perfectly situated within one of London's most desirable areas, Knightsbridge. There are three iconic developments that place Knightsbridge among the worlds most exceptional addresses - Trevor Square, The Knightsbridge and Lancelot Place have been transformed into landmark schemes which epitomise the area's prestigious status.
Trevor Square was formerly the Harrods Knightsbridge depository which was built in 1919 and now the Grade II listed building has been converted into 40 luxurious apartments and penthouses, townhouses and mews houses.
The Knightsbridge features an exclusive selection of 191 apartments, seven penthouses and seven mews houses which have been designed around a central landscaped garden; previously this was a 1.7 acre commercial site which has been transformed into a premier address with outstanding hotel-style and leisure facilities.
Lancelot Place situated in the heart of Knightsbridge and Mayfair close to the Harrods department store comprises 52, one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses spread over ten floors and benefits from 24-hour concierge service, gym and fitness centre as well as a sauna and Jacuzzi. The adjacent Chevalier House also provides a collection of 28 apartments and penthouses ranging for one to three-bedrooms and two penthouses.
Harrods Estates is the leading estate agent for Knightsbridge and has an ongoing selection of beautiful high quality residences available in the Knightsbridge area and London. In addition to a full compliment of real estate services, Harrods Estates is also able to draw upon the extensive range of lifestyle services provided by the Harrods store including interior designers and first class personal shoppers that offer advice on the latest fashion, styling and interior design for clients' homes, both in the UK and overseas.
