Replacement dwellings on the increase
Our Designer Beverley reports on the increasing number of replacement homes being built
An ever increasing number of my clients are asking us to design a replacement dwelling, for example like the rural Georgian house opposite. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that good building plots are not that easy to come by. In fact in the South East of England 80+% of our projects are old for new. In certain planning situations it is possible to negotiate ‘2 for 1’ (see lower image opposite) which can make a project self-financing.
It’s not just the South East; replacement projects are also growing in popularity in property hotspots all around the country. Look around your area, you may see something suitable.
