Many of England's finest properties are listed, restricting how they can be altered. But when extended sympathetically and with an understanding of what can and can't be done, listed properties make sublime family homes.

Our experts know exactly how to get the best out of a listed property. We handle complex planning and listed-building consents for prestigious London projects, often involving major extensions and basement conversions. Thanks to our expertise in this area, we have a 100% record in gaining planning consents for basements. For more information, visit design and planning pages.

We are highly skilled in restoring period features, such as plasterwork, stained glass, eglomise glass, natural stone, cut brickwork, mosaic and specialist paint finishes or carpentry. Our talent lies in modernising properties while maintaining their architectural integrity.

If you're thinking of renovating a listed property, we can lead you through this often-confusing process, allowing you to create a home far beyond what you thought possible.
