Londra’da ev alan Türk sayısı her yıl katlanıyor

Son 5 yılda 85 bin Türk Londra’dan ev alırken, en çok tercih edilen bölge Chelsea oldu. Genellikle 1 milyon poundluk 2+1 evleri tercih eden Türkler, kesenin ağzını 90 milyon pounda kadar açtı

Son yıllarda Türkler’in Londra’ya ilgisi ciddi şekilde arttı. Allytta Emlak Danışmanlığı CEO’su Neşe Jenkins, pek çok Türk yatırımcının geçici fiyat düşüşünü fırsat olarak değerlendirdiğini ve alıma geçtiğini, son 2 yılda emlak almak için kendilerine ulaşan Türk yatırımcı sayısında yüzde 297 artış yaşandığını bildirdi. Jenkins, “Son 5 yılda 85 bin Türk’ün Londra’dan ev aldığını düşünüyoruz. Ayrıca resmi verilere göre, son 5 yılda 17 bin Türk İngiltere’ye göç etti” dedi.

Chelsea sevdası

Londra’da 375 bin ila 400 bin pound aralığından başlayarak konut alınabildiğini ancak bu rakamlarla sadece 1+1 dairenin alınabileceğini belirten Jenkins, Türkler’in genellikle Londra’ya gidip geldikçe kalmak için 2+1 apartman dairesi almayı tercih ettiğini, ayrıca yatırım ve çocuğunu okutmak için de Londra’da konut aldığını bildirdi.

Jenkins, “Türklerin Londra’da ev almak için ayırdığı tutar ortalama 1 milyon sterlin. Bunun daha düşüğünü de daha yükseğini de gördük. Ama ortalama rakam 1 milyon pound diyebiliriz” şeklinde konuştu. Jenkins, Türkler’in her zaman Londra’ya ilgisinin fazla olduğunu ifade ederek, Türk yatırımcıların Londra’da en çok Chelsea bölgesini tercih ettiğini söyledi.

90 milyon pounda ev alan Türk var

Londra’da yeni konutların kolay kolay yapılamadığını aktaran Jenkins, uygun fiyatlı konut bulmanın zor olduğunu, İngilizler’in bile Londra’dan ev alamadığını, küresel yatırımcıların ve zenginlerin bölgeyi tercih ettiğini söyledi. Jenkins, bugüne kadar Türkler’in Londra’dan aldığı en yüksek meblağlı gayrimenkule ilişkin de, “Daha önce bir Azerbaycan Türk’ünün 140 milyon pounda ev aldığını biliyordum. Kısa süre önce de bir Türk, Londra’da The Knightsbridge Apartments’de 90 milyon pounda ev aldı. Knightsbridge’de harika bir lokasyonda” ifadelerini kullandı.

2019’da fiyatlar artar avantajlı dönemdeyiz

Londra emlak pazarının son 20 yılda çok hızlı büyüdüğünü, Ocak 1998’de 98 bin pound olan averaj fiyatların neredeyse yüzde 500’lük artışla Ocak 2018’de 485 bin pounda yükseldiğini belirten Jenkins, aynı dönemde İngiltere genelindeki averaj emlak fiyatlarının 227 bin pounda yükseldiğini, bu rakamların Londra’nın cazibesini ortaya koyduğunu söyledi. Brexit sonrası Londra’da konut fiyatlarının gerilemeye başladığını ifade eden Jenkins, “İngiltere Tapu Sicil Dairesi verilerine göre, Londra’da emlak fiyatları Mayıs’ta Mart 2017’ye göre yüzde 0.7 geriledi. Bu düşüş, İngiltere’de 2009’da yaşanan finansal kriz doneminden bu yana en büyük düşüş olarak kayıtlara geçti” şeklinde konuştu. Brexit sonrası için herkesin çok büyük beklentisi olduğunu belirten Jenkins, “Mart 2019’da bu süreç bitecek. 2020 ve sonrası için fiyat artışı bekleniyor. Londra’da emlak yatırımı yapmak isteyenler için gerçekten çok avantajlı bir dönem içerisindeyiz. Önümüzdeki 5 yıl boyunca ciddi artış bekleniyor” dedi. Jenkins, Londra’ya tüm ülkelerin ilgi gösterdiğini ancak en büyük ilginin Dubai, Singapur, Rusya ve Körfez ülkelerinden geldiğini bildirdi.

11 of the most expensive homes you can buy in London right now

Living in London is ridiculously expensive, with the average cost of a house in London priced at over £550,000.

But have you ever wondered what the most expensive houses in the British capital cost?

To find out, Business Insider asked several estate agents in London — from high-street property agents like Foxtons to luxury realtors like Harrods Estates — for the priciest homes they are offering on the market.

Unsurprisingly, the capital's costliest residences cost millions of pounds, are almost all centrally located, and boast luxurious features such as swimming pools, cinema rooms, and, in one case, a levitating dining table.

LONDONS MOST EXPENSIVE APARTMENT

Prepare for a wealth-envy extravaganza, as this £90,000,000 flat is the most expensive on record. The sale of the apartment in (no surprises here) Knightsbridge, London, is the most exensive residential property transaction that has ever been recorded by the Land Registry. According to City AM, the huge four-bedroom flat at 199 Knightsbridge was bought by Capital FM owner Ashley Tabor in April. Tabor apparently plans to knock it through into the flat he owns next door, creating one massive, 15,000 sq ft ‘super flat. The flat is in 199 Knightsbridge. It’s officially the most expensive flat on record London Central Portfolio recently analysed the Land Registry, and confirmed that the price paid by Tabor is the highest transaction ever to cross its books.

SLONE STREET

Sloane Street was developed by Henry Holland for the 1st Earl Cadogan (1728-1807). Charles ‘Sloane’ 1st Earl Cadogan sold development lease to Henry Holland in 1777. Over the next few years Holland (architect, builder and son in law of ‘Capability Brown’)developed nearly 100 acres of Chelsea. He laid out the street plan for Sloane Street, Sloane Square and Hans Place as well as many other streets, designing the layout of much of what we see around us today. The development was named ‘Hans Town’. Nearly all of Holland’s original elegant Georgian houses have been swept away by later developments; however No. 123 Sloane Street is one of the few surviving examples. It was a house such as this that Jane Austen would have recognized. In 1811 she lived with her brother Henry at No.64 whilst pouring over the proofs of Sense and Sensibility. For a period of some 50 years Hans Town was a very fashionable place to live. Correspondingly, Knightsbridge became a magnet for shopping; laying the early foundations for the future growth of large stores.

Harvey Nichols can trace its history back to Benjamin Harvey’s shop of 1831 on the corner of Knightsbridge and Sloane Street – in exactly the same place Harvey Nichols is today. Much expanded since then, the frontage seen today was constructed in the 1880’s.

The latter part of the 19th century saw much development in Knightsbridge and the locality of Sloane Street. An increasingly busy shopping centre serving the fashionable local residents, Sloane Street boasted a variety of drapers, tailors, hosiers and milliners.

Fine hotels also sprang up, such as The Cadogan Hotel in 1887. Lillie Langtry, famous actress and close friend of King Edward VII, lived next door to the hotel. When the hotel expanded incorporating Lillie’s former home, she still stayed in her old bedroom (Room 109). The Cadogan Hotel at No. 75 Sloane Street was also the site of Oscar Wilde’s arrest in 1895, immortalized in John Betjeman’s poem.

Sloane Street has always been upmarket. However the seeds of its journey, culminating in the exclusive, leading luxury stores we see today, were sown in the 1960’s. The nearby Kings Road of ‘swinging 60’s fame’ saw the influx of some high-end trend setting stores. This continued over the subsequent years; however Sloane Street really came into its own in the mid-1990s. No longer was Sloane Street anything approaching a normal high street. Recovery from the early ‘90’s recession saw an explosion of luxury designer brands and flagship stores.

Sloane Street today is home to the world’s leading fashion houses, attracting a truly global clientele. The street continues to evolve and in 2013 welcomed the first UK standalone boutique for Tom Ford and a new Ermengildo Zegna boutique whilst Alberta Ferretti, Christian Dior, Valentino and Saint Laurent have all carried out major store refurbishments.

Before 1777 there was no Sloane Street or Sloane Square. A traveller wanting to get from Knightsbridge to the Kings Road, a distance of about ¾ of a mile (as the crow flies) would have to trudge across a patchwork of fields. And that’s if they dared to go at all. The route would take them dangerously close to the infamous Five Fields area to the east, just across the Westbourne stream.

Five Fields, a marshy no-mans-land, was home to brigands and highwaymen. At that time, on the eastern side of what is now Sloane Square was “Blandel” or “Bloody” Bridge, so called because of the numerous robberies and murders committed on the spot.

The Westbourne stream forms the ancient boundary between the lands of Chelsea, under the stewardship of the Cadogan Estate to the west and the Grosvenor Estate to the east. The stream still exists, although now runs underground.

Top British Watch Brands

The United Kingdom is a country with a truly unique and fascinating culture. One that has given the world everything from classical literature, to famous rock music, and even its very language. However, watch brands from Britannia have had difficulty in the past standing on their own two legs. A serial fabrication of pocket and wristwatches was never able really to come to fruition, even with this island nation’s role as a pioneer in the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th centuries. An odd outcome, especially considering watchmaking has a long standing connection to the United Kingdom. Historic legends such as John Arnold, Thomas Mudge, John Harrison, Thomas Tompion, and George Graham have all left their mark on the pages of watch history.

Keeping that in mind: here’s a shoutout to all the disheartened, Anglophile watchmaker enthusiasts. Horology in Great Britain is making a comeback. New brands are on the up and up and are building upon the foundation of this country’s watchmaking traditions with entirely new angles on designs and giving the industry a fresh pulse. To give you a better overview of the watch cartography in the United Kingdom, we’ve dug into the best this horological industry now has to offer, and we’re here to file our report on the top 10 British Watch Brands.

Bremont Watch Company

Founded originally by two brothers, Bremont is the largest watchmaker in the British Isles. The company’s mechanical know-how, dedication to aeronautics and construction, as well as a deep passion for watches has taken shape in its inventions. The UK watch brand’s portfolio consists of pilots’ or adventure theme based watches.

However, Nick and Giles English have also gone one step further and added several unique to Bremont, manufacturing twists e.g. the Trip Tick Case Design or the anti-magnetic Faraday cage. It has a substantial amount of classic aviation styled timepieces in its portfolio. For example the U-2: a watch tested and designed by the U2 Spy Plane Squadron in the United States. 

Also among its number, the SOLO: a classic pilot's’ watch based on aviation timekeepers from the 1940s. However, Bremont also has in its repertoire a divers’ watch with a water resistance of a staggering 2,000 metres. The photo above is the Bremont ALT1-P-BK: a COSC, DLC coated, automatic chronometer

Roger Smith

While the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea isn’t a part of Great Britain it’s still under British Crown dependency. Its founder Roger Smith is the protégé of George Daniels: widely regarded as the greatest watchmaker in the 20th century and also as the father of the co-axial escapement. Smith’s famous mentor bequeathed the entire workshop to him and it’s a studio geared towards constructing timepieces from start to finish. Smith is very outspoken about the current state of watchmaking within the United Kingdom and has launched a debate about the future of British watch brands amid the dominance of Swiss movements.

Among his most noteworthy creations is the Series 2: a very refined dress watch that has incorporated vintage craftsmanship and is designed with the modern professional in mind. It’s a very limited series, with only 10 pieces crafted per year. Adding to its premium allure is its Daniel’s co-axial escapement: a special modification of the lever escapement with attributes of the detent escapement and considered to be among the most important horological innovations altogether.

As an added measure of luxury, Smith has also created the Series 4 Triple Calendar Moonphase timepiece in 18k red gold, which retails for a premium price of 250,000.- GBP. Also, Smith is also an accessible watchmaker and can be commissioned to create a customised, individual timepiece from the ground up. However, be prepared to sign the waiting list for a unique UK watch from the forges of the brand, as the current time span before receiving a Smith timekeeper is upwards of two years.

Arnold & Son

Located in the horological hotbed of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Arnold & Son is a watchmaking company that unifies the bells and whistles of Swiss workmanship together with the British tradition of adventure and sea based exploration. In 1787, John Arnold founded the brand and specialised in the manufacturing of ship chronometers. These unique maritime devices saw action aboard the ships of the legendary, seafaring exploits of Captain Thomas Butler, Sir John Franklin, and even Captain James Cook.

While the brand is now Swiss, Arnold & Son still builds upon this British legacy by offering nautical inspired timepieces in two collections: the Royal and Instrument. In 2015, it celebrated its 250th year anniversary by launching five new in-house movements. The moon has long been used as a point of reference to guide ships at sea. In the spirit of the importance of this celestial body, the Arnold & Son Double Hemisphere Perpetual Moon with a very attractive moon phase complication is just one example of the excellence this British watch brand outputs.

Garrick

This London based company is another English watch brand in our list that sets out to contribute to the revival of Britain’s watchmaking tradition. Garrick was created by the entrepreneur, full time watch collector, and horological enthusiast David Brailsford. With his profound interest in traditional High Horology, he even partnered up with one of the most gifted watchmakers out there, Andreas Strehler, to create an innovative hand wound movement. 

Brailsford made it his mission to create the finest timepieces while upholding traditional British watchmaking values. By working together with Strehler and his company UhrTeil AG, Garrick was able to launch its own high-end UT-G01 movement, which is built and finished in the Garrick workshops in Norwich. This movement can be found exclusively in the Portsmouth and S1 timepiece and boats everything a truly great watch needs. Neither costs nor trouble have been spared to refine it to the maximum.

Four collections are in Garrick’s current line-up: the Norfolk, Regulator, Portsmouth and the S1. In addition to that, Garrick allows customers to create bespoke watches, showcasing that the customer is still king and that their watches are more of a horological gem than just a simple mass-produced timekeeper. As far as the refinements go, Garrick does not flinch away from going an extra mile. Whether it is heat blued hands and screws or their own free sprung in-house balance wheels, the brand is able to display their immense knowhow in a variety of ways.
