The beauty of a barn conversion
24th July 2014

Old stone and brick barns offer up the opportunity to convert attractive but unused buildings in to wonderful homes. I would therefore like to show you a fantastic example which has just come to the market with our Village Agency department. I feel ‘The Barn’ in Upper Heyford successfully combines practicality with the charm of original character features. This is a balance not always easy to achieve, however if carried out sympathetically the conversion will result in a home with a relaxing and serene atmosphere along with a sense of drama and aesthetic beauty. I’ll show you some of the highlights here and include a link to the website in case you’d like to review the full details.

Diary of a refurbishment – Final Update
18th March 2014

For those of you who have been following our Blog, you will be aware that we have been covering the progress of a local refurbishment project in Duston, Northampton.

The programme of works has now been completed and in fact the house was sold before even officially reaching the market! An endorsement of both the quality of the work carried out and Jackson Grundy’s ability to match customers to the right properties quickly! As such, we would like to think that all parties involved were very pleased with the experience and we wish the new owners happy times ahead in their new home.

SOCIAL MEDIA – the ‘friend’ of house buyers and sellers everywhere
6th March 2014

The impact and usefulness of Social Media within the Property Industry would still seem to be a topic up for debate in 2014. From the perspective of Estate Agents, at least in some part, I suspect this is due to the unavailability of a reliable gauge of its effectiveness in increasing the turnover of its business. This is, of course, irrelevant to the benefits it provides house buyers and sellers, which I believe can no longer be disputed.

Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and Property blogs are all examples of valuable resources that can be tapped, for free, by those interested in property.

It’s time for a pictorial update of the refurbishment project we have been following.

Just as a reminder, an accommodating local developer has allowed us access to his project on Main Road in Duston. The general idea is to provide those who are interested with something of an insight in to a refurbishment project at various stages of completion.
