Over the years, Aspire has marketed hundreds of converted properties – entire houses that have been completely renovated for the first time in decades, large dwellings that have been converted into flats and even offices that have made a spectacular transformation to residential use. While they all attract buyers, no two have ever been the same and there lies the appeal. A conversion hits the right note with buyers who don’t want a property exactly like their neighbour’s or the other 35 people in their block but do want a turn-key ready home that’s also a blank canvass.
Converted properties need a tailored approach, with experienced developers frequently working with listed status, preservation bodies or within conservation areas to craft a quality product. The process often involves a stringent prescription of what can and can’t be done, along with the need to custom-order fixtures and fittings, and hand-craft items on a one-off basis.
The yield is individual floorplans, the scope to install a bespoke specification and the increased likelihood of a more luxurious finish as quality, not quantity, becomes the main focus.
