Hard to sell homes? ep 5.

The hidden development potential of hard to sell homes. Episode 5


“If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”


Something a little different this week. Just to prove that I'm not all mouth and no trousers, here's one I made earlier.


My first personal development after having done three others with my old development partners, This one beautifully sums up the hidden development potential of existing urban housing sites,


This post war three bedroom house afforded space in the garden and the roof for conversion into a three and a four bedroom house development. Not without its challenges including restrictive covenants, local authority housing estate permission as well as the usual planning and funding hurdles. Both houses still have great front and rear gardens and lovely flexible internal spaces as well as ensuites bathroom to the master bedrooms


See you next week.
