We navigated complex access issues and fulfilled a family’s wishes for the high-quality development of two executive homes that referenced their grandfather’s legacy.
By being sensitive to the family’s wishes and respecting the history of the land, we’ve been able to offer a considerable amount of flexibility in how we approach this project. For example, we agreed we would limit the development to only two houses (although three would fit) and name either the access drive or each properly after the family’s grandfather, who originally owned the land. The family have also had the final say on the style of property and the materials we use.
We will develop this project via an Option Agreement. We will do all the work required for a high-quality Planning application and cover all the costs. In return, the family are giving us the time and exclusivity to do that work. When we achieve the Planning we think we can get, we’ll purchase the land at the agreed price. There will be no outlay in this process for the family, and they take no risk – we even cover their legal costs.
