About Us


As a group Bloomsbury traces it’s history back to 1914 . A Private, Limited Company, Bloomsbury’s structure has always included investment, trading and development arms, which allows a flexible and tailored approach to be taken to every opportunity.
Originally based in Central London, Bloomsbury has recently established its offices in Winchester allowing easy access to the capital as well as a feel for the market further afield.

Over the last century Bloomsbury Properties Ltd has evolved as a group and now includes discrete subsidiaries for each area of activity;

  • Vernon Smith Ltd – investment
  • West Central and Suburban Investment Company Ltd – trading
  • Talisman Homes (Bloomsbury) – development


Our portfolio has constantly adjusted to balance diversity of risk and specialisation. The most recent purchases have been modern office and industrial investments and good quality residential ASTs.

Going forward the strategy will see an increased emphasis on geographical specialisation within an hour of the M25 and select residential investments in well healed commuter centres serving the capital.
