The client purchased a distinctive residential mews house in Mayfair that needed to be completely redecorated and refurnished, as well as an overhaul required of the dated mechanical and electrical installations in the house, ready to launch for letting. The property features an expansive array of technical entertainment equipment, requiring an in-depth knowledge of the systems in the house to ensure they are kept maintained, upgraded and in full working order at all times. From the basement cinema room with overhead projector screen and surround sound, to the Crestron lighting systems and electric blinds throughout the house, the property requires a detailed and professional maintenance plan to ensure all systems are kept running smoothly at all times for the occupants.

By involving Pastor Real Estate at the beginning of the project, it was possible to discuss and consider the client’s needs and requirements for this unique property, taking into account the target lettings market that the property would be aimed at following the refurbishment and the rental return desired. A team of interiors designers and experienced contractors were utilised to ensure the works were carried out swiftly and according to schedule, resulting in a very exclusive and desirable home in the heart of Mayfair. Following completion of the project, a launch event was held to introduce the property to the market and it was rented to a family seeking a sophisticated London base.
Quote from Head of Property Management: The Shepherd Street property presented a particular challenge due to the vast array of mechanical and electrical equipment in the house; the specification had to be quite precise and approved at every stage by the client and the finish had to be exactly in accordance with the client’s wishes and to a very high standard, which the team met successfully at every stage.
Quote from Head of Lettings and Management: There was not a single day following the purchase that some aspect of the renovation was not being worked upon, whether it was the furnishings or the mechanical and electrical installations. As a result of careful project management and pro-active planning, we were able to complete and photograph the finished product, ready for brochure preparation and marketing, enabling the property to be ‘market ready’ in record time.
