Case studies: Commercial Nursery Developed into 16 Family Homes


Commercial Nursery Developed into 16 Family Homes

On land in Hailsham, East Sussex that was previously a commercial nursery now stands this impressive development of modern, newly built family homes.

Paul Nicholls is the lead developer for the site, running the local company alongside his father and comments “the previous land owner sold the plot when it couldn’t be sold as a going concern. Later down the line, the planning regulations changed, meaning that the site could be developed for residential use”.

The properties on the site have been built in phases, with 4 houses being constructed during each stage. All have a similar external finish of brick, render and wood beams but each has its own individual styling.

“We realised that for a development of this kind, it was crucial that we did everything right. We wanted to complete everything to a very high specification to satisfy potential buyers. A high quality finish also enables us to realise the best property values.” Paul goes on to comment.

When explaining how they found Dale Joinery Paul explains “we felt that uPVC windows in a white finish on this development just wouldn’t be the right fit. We were very keen to go for a timber option and the range at Dale was ideal”.

Flush casement windows and entrance doors have been installed throughout the development with the windows finished in ‘Straw’ and ‘Light Ivory’ on different properties and the entrance doors boasting a range of finishes. “Having the choice and range available to mix up the colour finishes of the doors and windows has been very helpful!”.

With the development continuing to grow over the next couple of years, the first four completed homes have already been snapped up by eager buyers. “We sold the first four properties easily and are already progressing into the next phase. The new homeowners have been complimenting us on their windows and doors, they love them!”.

“We have been very happy with Dale, part of the process has been excellent. We will certainly be using them for the rest of the development”.
