With a number of historic London properties on our books, Dexters' specialist period homes team always read with interest the latest buildings to acquire listed status.  

Historic England recently granted listed status to five new buildings, including two in London: a humble Hyde Park cabbie's shelter dating back to 1904 - still used by London cab drivers today - and a series of ornate ceremonial buildings at a Jewish cemetery in Willesden. Together with residential properties, including a warren-like home built into the earth in West Yorkshire, these diverse structures show the sheer variety of Britain's heritage buildings today.

Dexters recently sold a classic Grade II Georgian townhouse in Westminster. The beautiful period fireplaces, high ceilings and immaculate refurbishment at this property represented just a few of the things we love about our job!

At the other end of the spectrum, we were equally excited to bring to market a converted tram shed in Tufnell Park. Without listed status, this building underwent a spectacular transformation, whilst respecting the original framework. 

"Historic central London property comes in many shapes and sizes, just as you'd expect in a city that has grown over thousands of years," says Kirsty Sugden of Dexters Westminster. To speak to us about buying a period property in London, contact our Mayfair office on 020 7590 9590.
