Homeowner Peter Nicholson of Whittlebury, near Towcester, modified his 1983 brick–built house to make better use of the space. A two storey extension was built and the layout of the master bedroom altered to suit a 21st century lifestyle. The bedroom originally had an open balcony which was taking up valuable space, so Peter extended the bedroom to incorporate the area into the room. He fitted a French door and searched the internet for a Juliette balcony to make the installation safe.
Reasonably priced balcony
“There were plenty of companies offering balconies with vertical bars,” says Peter, “but that defeated the object. I wanted to let in the light and have clear views and Balcony offered exactly what I needed. I ordered a standard 3 metre Juliette balcony from stock, which kept the price reasonable.
“The service from Balcony was great and I am delighted with the result,” continues Peter. “The Juliette was delivered within seven days of order and it was very easy to install myself.”
Property developer Paul Nash of Kooks Ltd in Hove, recently chose Juliette balconies from Balcony Systems to enhance his development of three luxury townhouses.
The properties, based in East Grinstead, are contemporary and Paul wanted to keep the clean lines and funky feel to the houses while maximising the use of light and space.

In Leamington Spa homeowner Nick Tiffin recently completed an extensive extension to his detached five bedroom home.
Building on to the house at the side, the rear and the top was a major investment of money and time, costing in excess of £250,000 and taking about 10 months to complete. Nick used various contractors to carry out the work to the £700,000 property:

In the current economic climate new developments have to offer something extra in terms of design and life-style to tempt buyers. New homes need to have the ‘wow factor’ to stand out from the crowd, but still be desirable properties at reasonable prices.
