With love in the air for Valentine’s Day tomorrow, if you are mid-property search and not finding your perfect property, it may just be worth looking at things afresh and, with a little love and inspiration, you might find your dream home is closer than you think.

Spotlight on Flackwell Heath - our estate agent’s view.

At a time when the importance of mental health is gaining awareness, we are proud to support the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust’s event The Best of Rock Musicals, hosted by Sir Tim Rice at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith on Sunday May 12th including songs from Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Miss Saigon, RENT, Wicked and The Lion King. The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust was formed in 1997 by the Waller family in memory of their son and brother, Charlie, who took his own life whilst suffering from depression. The Trust offers support and education to those affected by depression and mental illness and its vision is of a world where people understand and talk openly about depression; where young people are educated on the importance of staying mentally well, and where treatment is available to everyone who needs it.

From thatched cottages to barn conversions, if you buy a listed building, you’re not just buying a new home, but a piece of national heritage and with a sympathetic approach you can create your dream home. From décor to garden design, everyone wants to make their mark on a property but if it’s listed you need to understand exactly what’s involved from the outset. Any alterations without proper consents are a criminal offence which could cost thousands to remedy. Planning permission may be difficult, but not impossible; around 90% of applications are approved. It’s important to work with planners, architects and engineers and to be realistic about what you want to achieve.
