This week, we couldn’t write an article that ignored Valentine’s Day, complete with love themes and romantic puns. So, here goes.

Knowing what sort of property a buyer will fall head over heels for is a skill any good, experienced agent has honed from years of matchmaking.

With that in mind, below we look at the five most popular property types in London and the type of buyers who are often smitten by them.

  1. The charming semi-detached

    Young families and professional couples often fall for semi-detached homes. These properties are popular for their garden spaces and potential for social gatherings, appealing to those who enjoy neighbourly interaction and a bit more room.

  2. High-rise romance

    Apartments are popular with young professionals and couples seeking to downsize. These homes are perfect for those drawn to the energy and convenience of urban environments and the simplicity of maintenance-free living.

  3. The Timeless Townhouse

    Detached homes and larger townhouses are an excellent fit for growing families looking for a more spacious and private environment. They provide plenty of room for family activities, flexible living spaces and outdoor spaces and their historic character is always on trend.

  4. Terrific terraces

    Terraced houses are often attractive to first-time buyers and downsizers who are charmed by their character and features such as high ceilings and large windows. They’re a chance to get to know your neighbours and usually come with a sense of community attached.

  5. Green Neighbourhood Gems

    For those seeking a touch of greenery, areas like Battersea offer homes with gardens and proximity to parks. These properties are ideal for families and individuals wanting a blend of city convenience and access to green spaces.
