Historic and new properties

Our goal is to work with clients to realise their vision for their home.

We offer design-led design services for all houses and small commercial developments, large or small and whether they are based in the countryside or town.

From advising on how to conserve, adapt or convert an existing property, to drawing up detailed plans and managing building works for a new build, Strutt & Parker's personal service takes the stress out of what can be a complex process.

Planning laws

Planning legislation is key as it can often directly influence the size and design of a home.

We work with the local planning body and/or a planning consultant to understand the development opportunity on whether a particular site is suitable and if it has access to sewerage, electrics and gas mains. We can also obtain planning consents for renovation projects and extensions.

Sustainable and eco-friendly features may help to get a project through the planning system more expediently.

Historic homes restoration experts

Many of the properties we are involved with are period properties, which require traditional building techniques and an understanding of the legalities of tackling such projects.

Our teams expert knowledge of the conservation and restoration of listed buildings and is experience in working with heritage bodies places them in good stead in achieving a positive outcome in gaining approval for works.

Garden design, Interior Architecture and Interior Design

The landscape in which a high-end residential property sits is as important as the house itself. This is also true of the interior Architecture and Interior Design. It is key to ensure that a design is holistic in its approach to ensure the most well rounded resolve.

Through our extensive network, we are able to bring in external landscape architects and interior designers to design a garden and interior that matches the property in both scale and ambition, but above all, meets our client’s needs and responds to their taste.

This approach respects and understands that outside space, architecture and interiors, collectively turns good design into great design, adding value, but above all creating attractive spaces.
