Purchasing a Property Conversion

We all know that purchasing your ideal property is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make – whether you are looking for your ‘forever’ house or just want to get a foot on the property ladder.

However, deciding what property you want to live in can be difficult and will depend on a number of factors – like your budget, preferred style and ideal location.

If you are looking for a unique property purchase, why not consider buying a conversion?  Converted houses preserve the history of original buildings but can be retransformed into magnificent, modern homes.

Examples of conversions include large country houses, old barns, schools and even police houses or firestations which can be separated into apartments and duplexes to allow multiple tenancies.

The advantages of living in a converted house 

Victorian conversions are steeped in history and because most of these are listed buildings, the character of the house will stay timeless.  UK planning permission makes it difficult to enforce major structural changes and thus ensures you keep the historical atmosphere of the property but this is an attractive feature to many buyers anyway.

Due to the historical architectural structures and features, conversions are typically liberally proportioned and strikingly designed from the outside but if you are interested in a period conversion then this doesn’t mean the interior has to be antiquated.  Many converters combine the rustic exterior with a modern interior, using contemporary designs and features to build a harmonious contrast between old and new.

You’ll find converted properties available for sale in numerous areas of the country but converted houses for sale in Midhurst are a great example. Some of these fantastic buildings can be found in South Downs National Park and range from a converted King Edward VII Estate Hospital to other Grade II and Grade II* listed buildings, which consist of apartments, duplexes and houses.   These offer a superb standard of living, including idyllic scenery and access to public walks.pendean-house-exterior-001-1200x630
