Our recent sale, however, smashed the previous record price of just under £1000 per square foot recorded in July 2008 for a property on the Wentworth Estate, setting a new level of £1,291 per square foot. Interestingly, the property was a reasonable home} of four bedrooms but its outstanding location in a highly adored area meant that even in these times a new record was achieved.”
