Refurbishments open up new opportunities to buy in Clifton
15 June 2017 by Emma Forster
Refurbishments, ambitious extensions and designer developments are opening up under-utilised spaces in Clifton – underlining the area’s enduring popularity.
That’s according to fast-expanding Bristol builders Helm Construction – who have scored a hat-trick of successes in neighbouring streets restoring tired properties and cleaning up eyesore sites.
Construction Director Jon Ticehurst said: “New build schemes in Clifton can be counted on the fingers of one hand – which makes extensions and refurbishments extremely popular – as well as highly cost effective.
“We have been called in to complete extensive refits in Pembroke Road and Frederick Place and have now been asked to build nine new apartments on a former garage site in Hampton Road by developers CPD/WDA.”
The new Hampton Road development in Redland will feature one, three bedroom and eight, two bedroom apartments situated over two floors.
Jon Ticehurst added: “Just about every overgrown yard or tumbledown garage in the district has been returned to the public realm, creating a new useable space for residents – as well as some much-needed new homes for the community.”
Helm Construction has already completed a renovation project at Pembroke Road which includes an extension to transform the two-bedroom house into a four-bedroom house with one master en-suite, dressing room and two bathrooms.
Additionally, there is also a one-bedroom annex attached to the main building which has a mansard roof to create extra bedrooms to the second-storey of the property and an additional coach house is being converted into a self-contained house.
The company has also completed a scheme in Frederick Place where a new designer house has been built in an abandoned garden.
“In addition to providing new spaces and new homes, we feel we are also improving the visual amenity of the wider neighbourhood.”
