Southfields farm was purchased from the receivers of a previous developer. The exteriors of the properties had been completed to a good standard and the interiors were at various stages of completion. After a detailed review of the site it was decided the interior layouts didn’t work for their orientation in relation to their gardens and the position of the sun. The properties were arranged around a central courtyard and was better divided up into private spaces, leaving all three properties with sheltered private sun traps which made a real positive benefit for the subsequent inhabitants.
We did not feel we could sell properties with substandard interiors so we stripped out all of the internals and started again. Over the course of 15 month all three properties were renovated and successfully sold despite the prevailing market conditions.
