    ● Savills' auction on October 25 includes several lots in desirable areas of north-west London, including a flat on Harley Street in Marylebone, let as an investment at £36,400 per annum (guide price £750,000) and a semi in Crouch End, N8, arranged as five self-contained flats (three let, two vacant) reserved at a guide price of £725,000.

    ● Even in autumn, gardens help sell property - especially if they come with a sniff of planning permission.

    Real Estates is selling a Tudor-style house with garage in Totteridge, N20, for £2.5 million. The five-bedroom house has three reception rooms and three bathrooms, including two en-suites. The property retains many original features and has potential for extension, subject to permission. The mature gardens include a terrace and a children's play area.

    Real Estates is also selling a three-bedroom semi in Woodside Park. It has a garage with its own drive and offers tremendous potential for extension subject to permission. The garden backs directly on to fields.

    Oliver Ross, the partner responsible for the Totteridge office, together with Stephen Barnett, reports that he is encouraged by the amount of activity during the first five months and looks forward to the remainder of the year being just as successful.
