Why is former children’s home 114 Grosvenor Avenue being sold off seemingly so cheaply?
The estate agent Copping Joyce have placed 114 Grosvenor Avenue on the market. The valuation of this former children’s home is set at just £1.5 million. A seemingly large under valuation, considering its size, location and neighbouring property prices. We, at ISN, understanding the history of this building, suggest that the current owner should withdraw the property from the market and instead use the home as a community resource, in consultation with survivors of Islington’s care system.
The estate agents were contacted and asked to explain why it was seemingly being sold off so cheaply. Since contacting them and publishing this story, their link “http://www.coppingjoyce.co.uk/property/00048E/print-details” now displays this message “The Property you’re looking for no longer exists.”
