SMC acquired Birch Grove in 2015, an old Victorian property that sat within a conservation area. The house was derelict and had been uninhabited for two years. We completed a strip-out of the interior of the property, taking it back to the bare brick and structural elements.
We obtained planning permission for five apartments in 2016 and commenced construction in December 2016. We retained many of the period features of the conservation but gave the interiors a bright and contemporary feel. By using traditional architraves and bespoke timber sash windows we were aiming to harmonise the old with the new.
We made sure that the conversion project had our standard ten-year new build warranty to give our new owners peace of mind. The project was completed in December 2017.
