Phoenix House planning permission has been approved! Let the hard work commence…
You can keep updated on the progress of Sunderland’s new exquisite student accommodation by regularly checking our blog. Phoenix House will be completed in time for the academic year of 2016 and it’s set to be a busy time with enquiries being made already! Here is a link to a recent article on our development of Phoenix House.
As well as Phoenix House we have also been renovating our properties in Newcastle, starting with 35 Glenthorn Road. The property was transformed from what was a dated and rundown interior to a modern and very vibrant feel becoming one of Jesmond’s most attractive Student accommodations.
The refurbishment of our property on Glenthorn Road was quite a lengthy project and required the full assistance of our building and maintenance team, internally the property is unrecognisable.
The building and maintenance team started the project with a full house clearance which involved removing furniture, fixtures and fittings. Once the basic labouring was complete, the project was able to commence. The property was fully rewired and all plumbing systems renewed before all of the internal walls were plastered. All five bedrooms now have fully fitted furniture which consists of a bed, wardrobe, desk and shelving units.
The bathroom was removed from the rear of the property which allowed us the open up the kitchen into a much more spacious area and we were able to incorporate a breakfast bar. The bathroom was then relocated to the second floor of the building and the existing second bathroom received a full makeover which included a new bathroom suite.
The removal of the chimney breast from the lounge has allowed us to open up and consequentially create a lighter and generously sized communal lounge. The installation of a new TV and the introduction of new sofas a welcoming and comfortable area to relax and enjoy the complimentary Sky Tv and Wi Fi.
When the students arrived they could not believe the transition that had taken place and were all in agreement that Graysons Properties had set the new standard for student accommodation in Newcastle .
We would like to thank the building and maintenance team for their hard work and dedication which allowed the project to be completed so efficiently under the close guidance of our Director and interior designer Magdalena.
But don’t just take our word for it! Here are some before pictures, sometimes pictures really do say a thousand words.
