A former children’s home owned by Cheshire East Council, which had fallen into dereliction, was acquired by Thorngrove after an open market tender process.
Numerous issues beset this problem site, all of which needed to be surmounted before the contractor could commence works. Planning was protracted due to neighbour interference on design and boundary issues, but a planning permission was obtained for construction of three new 5-bedroomed build houses and the conversion of a derelict former Victorian 3,500sq.ft. manor house. Local company, Pochin Construction, were awarded the contract which was completed on time, on budget and to an exacting standard.
The development was designed to create a select community feel, with electric gates leading to an estate road off which the four houses were situated. Each house was individually considered by an interior designer with the specification and appearance being unsurpassed by the competition.
