Another successful rebuild from local property development company Hamilton Properties Ltd, is set on creating the next generation of family homes.
Local Henley couple, Andrew and Helma Marlow of Hamilton Properties Ltd have lived in the town for 25 years and have raised their family here. In 1998, they set up Hamilton Properties Ltd to “construct, in an environmentally friendly manner, high quality homes”. To date, they have built a total of 35 properties, and counting.
One of their current sites with far reaching views over Huntercombe Golf Course, was purchased in 2017 from Simmons & Sons, in Henley and consisted of two detached properties in need of renovation.
HPL chose the site because “…it represented a perfect opportunity to maximise the potential of a stunning site and location. In terms of planning policy, it was a straightforward replacement of two dwellings with two new units……” says Andrew.
Their plans were to create two beautiful spacious detached family homes built to the highest environmental standards, offering the flexible accommodation required by today’s contemporary family, including a detached double garage with studio and bathroom above, which could work as a home office, gym or guest quarters.
To reduce the carbon footprint, both houses will be heated using the latest in air source heat pump technology with the addition of LED lighting throughout and the highest level of insulation and timber framed double glazed windows.
The properties are nearing the end of their construction, with the roofs being erected in the next month, after which the company will begin fitting out the high end interiors.
The recent cold spell has made the site challenging “…The wintry weather has of course caused a few problems! However, we have an excellent team on site, headed up by Jon and Candyce of Shiplake Homes Ltd., the principal contractor, and progress is good. The estimated completion of both properties is July 2018.……” reports Helma.
The properties are already being marketed by Simmons & Sons, Henley and will be showcased at the upcoming 6th RIBA Henley Design Day on 17 March on the Simmons & Sons stand.
