Development

Whether you are looking simply replace an old kitchen, redecorate a tired room, makeover the whole house, or build a property from scratch, we can ably manage the whole process.

We have nearly 25 years’ experience of extensive building and renovation projects under our belt.

Our aim is to make the whole process as smooth, efficient and inexpensive as possible, whilst maximising the potential uplift in value of your property asset.

We can also advise you on all interior design and furnishing matters.

With prices in Mayfair achieving new records up to £9,000 per sq ft (£10,765 per sq metre), and even the outer suburbs breaking through the £1,000 per sq ft (95 sq ft) barrier, renovating and extending your existing property makes a lot of sense. This is especially so with the UK Government’s new Stamp Duty tax regime in place which is now biting purchasers hard.

Your project, our expertise

You want to maximise the potential of your property whether it’s for your own occupation or for investment. We have a stable of experienced and expert consultants and builders that can help you achieve pretty much anything you can dream of, so long as it falls within planning laws.

 

Scoping the project

Having discussed your budget and requirements, we can assess the viability of any building project quickly. We can involve expert planning consultants at this stage if necessary and are happy to oversee the administration of and application for planning permission with the local council and for listed building consent with English Heritage (if the property is Grade 1 or Grade 2 listed). We have the expertise to manage any type of project, no matter how complex from start to finish.

 

Sourcing the right professionals

We have worked with all our consultants, be they architects, structural engineers, quantity surveyors or interior designers for many years, and they are all tried and trusted. We also work with different quality building companies depending on the size and complexity of the job in hand and will advise you accordingly as to the best ones for your job.

 

The choice is yours

You can have as much input as you like, we are just as confident about getting a job completed on budget and in the timescale agreed if you leave the whole thing to us, as we are if you wish to be involved at every step of the way.

 

I cannot recommend highly enough Jonathan Crown and the property related services his company provides. Jonathan not only advised me on the purchase of an exceptional property in Little Venice (London) but also helped me undertake a major renovation of that property. Further, post-refurbishment, he very ably and successfully managed the property for me for a number of years.

Over a 14 month refurbishment period the property was gutted, major structural work was undertaken and the internal and external finishes were raised to meet very exacting standards. Through-out the period of these works I was living overseas and thus highly reliant on Jonathan and his team to ensure this major project went according to plan. In my absence Jonathan and team handled everything from architects to local planners to builders to carpenters to budgets and did so with both great efficiency and personal care.

The final product was excellent.

Jonathan and team, on my behalf, rented and managed the property and took exemplary care of the needs of the tenants. This they seamlessly and successfully did with their hallmark high level of personal attention to all matters big and small. The property was constantly rented, commanded a high and premium rental rate and the tenants loved the experience of living in the property. I could not have asked for more.
