We work on a variety of development planning projects across a range of sectors, both domestic and commercial and the following are just a small selection of current projects. We are confident that any project, big or small, will be executed to our very high standards.
14-bedroom hotel, BasingstokeThis small hotel (now named Arlan House) is the first of what I hope is a portfolio of hotels that we're looking to grow. Unlike other projects, this particular venture was pretty much ready to go from the start. In essence it was a hotel that wasn't being run properly that we turned around and is now thriving.
Large Refurbishment, NewburyThis is was a VERY distressed house when it was bought. The previous tenants (lots of them!) had completely abused this property over many years and it was quite a state, but nothing that 5 skips load of rubbish and some elbow grease couldn't solve, but that was just to get it into a position to be able to bring people around...
Dennington Park Road, West Hampstead, LondonThis was an 11-bedroom illegal HMO (i.e. it needed a licence and one was never applied for, therefore should never have been an HMO) that had been operating for many years in this way. It had changed hands a couple times and fell into disrepair and was subsequently vacant.
Mixed Use Refurbishment, Plympton
Completed Jun 2022This is a mixed use unit (shop downstairs, vacant residential upstairs) that we acquired in September 2021. It didn't come without a few hiccups but all in all was a successful project, funded by bridging finance and two investors (who were repaid in full plus interest upon refinance of the property).
Bungalow Refurbishment – Thatcham
Completed Jun 2020This is the other half of the assisted sale, a refurbishment of a bungalow that hadn't been updated in 50 years. It took a fair bit of work but the finished product was definitely a good one, with a very happy new owner.
New Build Bungalow – Thatcham, Berkshire
Completed Jun 2020An assisted sale of a property that the owners have struggled to sell for the past year. We will be taking control of the site (but not buying it), undertaking and funding the project ourselves which will consist of a full refurbishment of the existing property and carrying out a new build of a property on the adjoining land. Timescales for this are 9-12 months, and the aim is to have both units sold by October 2019.
Kings Road, Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire
Completed Nov 2017This property is a 3-bed semi-detached property in need of full refurbishment located in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. We had plans to undertake the refurbishment ourselves and had full financing in place, but our plans changed after a prolonged probate, which provided us with a nice quick profit.
