When you live in one London’s more desirable properties, it can be a difficult decision to move on because you are looking for something a little bit more modern that suits your modern family life a little better. You may be reluctant to sacrifice the location of your property and you may be reluctant to move away from the building itself if it is architecturally impressive. Often ties such as local schools, great neighbours and friends make the decision a little harder, especially when you include the transaction cost of a move to somewhere in a neighbourhood close by.
Of course, there is an alternative to moving house. You could choose to stay in the same property, but invest a bit of money on a renovation project to bring the house up to date whilst creating more space and improving your living environment beyond your imagination. For house renovation, London is actually ahead of the game – largely because of the proliferation of older properties in the capital and the limited space in the most desirable neighbourhoods such as Mayfair, Chelsea, Kensington and Westminster.
Professional construction companies are capable of introducing all sorts of techniques to make your home more contemporary, energy-efficient and modern whilst respecting the period and character of your property. Buildburo work closely with you to realise your ambitions, create space that you never knew existed, bathe darker areas with light, reduce noise from street level and bring your designs to life. We make your architectural drawings and improvements a reality, brick by brick, step by step.
Renovation is just the sort of solution that allows you to hold onto your home, be proud of the improvements and updates to your home whilst making sure your new property meets all of your practical and aesthetic needs for many years to come. Sometimes, the results gained from a property renovation far exceed the expectations of the owners – something we love to do for our clients who include estate managers as well as private home owners.
