Chief Financial Officer, Anita Szarek, came to the UK for a day from Columbia and took it upon herself to find a luxurious new apartment to use as a base while she traveled around Europe for work. She was delighted when we showed her exclusive closed development of Osborne House in Sunningdale, Berkshire, built by award-winning home builder Kebbell.
Why were you looking to move?
“I am Polish, but I had been living in Colombia for a short time, but because of my work I had to return to Europe. I chose the UK as my base, but I regularly travel around Europe. While living in Colombia I came to the UK for a day to view potential homes. Knight Frank took me to see Osborne House and I immediately liked the development and the apartments.
“I’m a single person who doesn’t have time to decorate and furnish an apartment and I loved what the interior designers had done in the show apartment, so I decided to buy this one. ci with all the equipment and furniture as well. We negotiated a deal, I made an offer and it was very convenient. Other than that day of viewing apartments, I could do everything else from abroad online or over the phone. Everything was super efficient.
“Because I travel a lot, I didn’t need the flat immediately, so I then rented the flat from Kebbell to continue using it as a show flat for six months. When I moved in the sales team was there, and they were very helpful in accepting my packages and belongings when I was away and helping me set up the house and utilities. Access to customer service, responsiveness and support from Kebbell has been very good.
What were you looking for in your new home?
“I needed to move because of my job but I really wanted a nice garden, privacy, to enjoy a green landscape and peace and quiet in the countryside. I like the feeling of living in the countryside. I need to travel easily to London two to three times a week and enjoy the beautiful shops and restaurants and the outdoor lifestyle. I also have friends in the area, but the most important thing for me was that the apartment was furnished and fully decorated and that the interior was designed in such a way that it was easy, ready to use and without hassle to move in. I also really loved the design of the bathroom!
