Miles Shipside, Rightmove director and housing market analyst comments: “Many have got used to living in the jaws of uncertainty since the referendum over three years ago, and have been getting on with their lives and housing moves. However, as we approach yet another Brexit deadline, there are signs that the increasing gnashing of teeth is causing some to hesitate. The autumn bounce normally kicks off at the same time as kids go back to school, but this year it’s a late starter at best, and if uncertainty persists then the autumn term could be missed altogether and its activities be delayed until the new year. Those who are planning to buy or trade up and can keep their nerve whilst others hesitate may find that they are in a stronger negotiating position to get a favourable deal.”

Over two and a half years ago the UK began the exit process to leave the EU by invoking Article 50 of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty. Since the withdrawal agreement reached between the EU and UK was rejected three times by our MPs, the uncertainty of how we are going to leave continues to affect the stability of the property market. According to national research, since EU leaders backed a six-month extension until 31st of October, more than two thirds of homeowners in the UK who are looking to buy or sell property, say that Brexit has altered their plans. A survey of 2000 homeowners highlighted that one in ten who were intending to sell had decided to put the sale on hold due to Brexit. Whereas some homeowners sited the political uncertainty as being the main motivating factor in deciding to sell with a small proportion looking to speed up the selling process to complete their move before the Brexit Deadline. Others were hoping to capitalise on a predicted fall in house prices by selling their properties now and waiting until after the UK leaves to buy.

The North of England’s housing market continues to remain resolute, outperforming the South by a considerable margin. We forecast house prices to continue to rise all be it at a subdued rate with an expected rise of between one and two per cent over a year at best.



A Newly Completed Refurbishment and Extension Project

Park Developments have recently completed a B lenheim refurbishment and extension project on a three

To the rear, substantial landscaping works took place, as well as an extension. The extension was constructed to house an open plan contemporary living kitchen with bi-folding doors, under floor heating and glass roof lanterns. In the garden, the task was to transform a standard lawned garden into one which incorporates a home office, seating terraces and a variety of plants and textures - all while taking advantage of the sun shining on the back of the house. The gardens can be accessed from the open plan kitchen for a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors. The inside of the property was fully refurbished and reconfigured. The ground floor now incorporates an entrance hall, an open plan living kitchen, guest bedroom with an en-suite shower room, WC, utility room, boot room and an integral garage. The entrance hall provides a view straight through from the front door to the rear gardens. The hall is sectioned by a glazed door into an entrance vestibule and a further glazed door at the end of the hall opens to the open plan living kitchen. On the first floor, the master bedroom comprises of a dressing area with bespoke storage, a balcony overlooking the property’s gardens and an en-suite bathroom. There is also a second upstairs bedroom with an en-suite shower room.

bedroomed bungalow. The brief from the client was to create a home that would sit easily by the sea and feel as though they were on holiday every day. During the design process, Blenheim and the client thoughtfully chose the materials and colours for the internals and externals of the property to achieve this unique vision. For this particular property, the challenge has been to create a house of exceptional style and quality for a client who has downsized from a large country home. To help with the transition from a larger property, a high level of storage solutions were incorporated throughout. Extensive refurbishment and extension works to the exterior of the property were undertaken. The exterior walls were clad with light blue and white millboard - a perfect combination of colours for a home envisioned to be by the sea. The property also had a new roof with slate tiles to match the exterior colour scheme. To the front, a bonded resin driveway was formed and is enclosed with yacht wire/post fencing and path borders constructed of grey rumbled key kerbs.

TIPS FOR DOWNSIZING When the need to downsize occurs, it can be a time consuming and tricky task to figure out which belongings you would like to take to your next home.

moving a few boxes! Plan your Storage Make a plan of what kind of storage you will have in your new home and how much you can fit in it. This includes furniture storage that you are taking with you and also the extra space available, which could be converted. If you are wanting to install new storage units, it might be useful to book an appointment with a storage designer to get the space measured and plans drawn up so that it’s all ready to go for when you move in.

The decision to downsize usually happens once children have moved out of the family home and the property is becoming difficult to maintain or is simply too large for the needs of the homeowner. As a result of this, people usually have belongings that they have accumulated over a lifetime. Therefore it can make it hard to get rid of items that have memories attached to them.

The One-Year Rule It’s easy to hang onto items just for the sake of keeping them, even if you don’t necessarily use them. That’s why it’s good to adopt the ‘one year rule’. This is where you think about when you last took the item out of your cupboard and actually used it. If the item hasn’t seen the light of day for a year, the truth is it’s probably not worth keeping for another year to not be used again.

Here are some tips to help you make the choice of what to keep and what to eliminate. Make an Inventory of Items Write down all of the main items you own and make a chart of whether you will be keeping it, giving it away or selling it. An inventory will help you organise your belongings and keep track of where everything is going.

Digitise and Organise your Files Many of us have a habit of keeping every important document and old CD’s, videos and DVD’s. Moving house can present the opportunity for you to go through your paperwork and CD collection, and digitise the files on your computer. Some CD’s and DVD’s are copyrighted so you won’t be able to make a copy. Instead, look through them all and decide which ones you want to keep.

Measure your Furniture and Space It is always worth booking an extra viewing at your new property and taking your tape measure. It’s a good idea to measure the pieces of furniture you are planning on taking with you beforehand, therefore on the viewing you can make sure each piece will fit. You may also want to print off the floor plan and sketch out roughly where you want your furniture to go. This will help to ensure a room isn’t looking cluttered, especially if you are going from a larger living room to a smaller one, for example.

Once you have moved in, the organising doesn’t stop there. An organised small space can become cluttered very quickly without being ruthless about what is coming into your home. You should try to make compromises where you can. For example, if you see a dressing table that you really like but you already have one, you could get rid of the old one to make room for the new.

Avoid Duplicating This is especially important when it comes to packing up your kitchen. It can be easy to take all of your dishes, cutlery and glasses etc., purely because they are classed as an essential item in everyday life. However, you may have twenty wine glasses that you save for that party you might host once every three years, when in reality you probably only need four of them. Sorting through which items you actually need and how many, could save you

There are many benefits to downsizing, so don’t get disheartened if you’re finding it tough to get rid of your belongings because there will be new memories to be made in your new home.

Sheffield’s Regeneration Standing at the sky’s edge in 2012, the view of the steel city looked very different than it does today. It would have been difficult to envisage the changes that have taken place as the regeneration of the city continues to drive forward with a master plan to build on Sheffield’s heritage and architectural successes. Six years ago, the city ranked in the bottom forty percent of the vibrant economy index and has now climbed ninety-five places, sitting proudly at the top of the list as England’s most improved place. Sheffield has repeatedly demonstrated a good balance between economic growth, social equality, and sustainability with healthy and happy people. Sheffield like any city still has areas of significant deprivation and high numbers of long term unemployment, however, the city has gained momentum over the past couple of decades, the local economy has strengthened and become more resilient and vibrant. Sheffield quite simply is a city on the up, a city that not only celebrates its industrial past, but a city, which believes in its future and looks forward with optimism.

The Heart of the City II The plans for Laycock House by Leonard Design complements the historic Pinstone Street façade. This is a good example of a late Victorian building, which has survived to present day relatively in its complete and original form. Work will see a sensitive renovation of the residences and smaller retail units fronting onto Pinstone Street.

Formerly known as the Sheffield Retail Quarter, the 470 million pound Heart of the City II scheme is one of Sheffield’s key economic projects. The scheme has been integral to the major redevelopment of the city centre. Backed by Sheffield City Council in partnership with its strategic development partner Queensberry, the scheme aims to bring the best shopping, leisure, residential and office opportunities into the region.

The development proposal is to retain Laycock House and demolish and reconstruct the rest of the block. In total, the block will feature almost 11,000 square feet of space suitable for shops, restaurants or cafés on the ground floor. The floors above will accommodate a small amount of office space - to be named Athol House and 52 quality urban apartments, which will be planned across 7 floors, ranging from studio apartments to 3 bedroomed apartments to be known as Burgess House.

The project aims to integrate and complement the existing architecture. Centrally located in the heart of the city, the site adjoins the main shopping areas of Fargate, The Moor and Division Street, adjacent to the Town Hall and City Hall and halfway between The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University. This new quarter will celebrate the existing architecture and buildings of heritage to create new leisure and retail spaces to encourage further investment and visitors to Sheffield’s city centre. The plan also has the provision for additional commerce, with the development of Grade A office blocks, residential apartments, a hotel, car park facilities, and green public spaces.

Isaacs House

The second block on Pinstone Street has been commonly referred to as The Pepper Pot but will be officially renamed Isaacs House. The building is situated between Pinstone Street, Cambridge Street, and Charles Street and was originally built for paper hangings merchant David Isaacs in 1904.

Grosvenor House

Behind the sympathetically restored Pinstone Street frontage, the building will be completely reimagined to provide 37,600 square feet of contemporary workspace and 10,000 square feet of prime retail and leisure space.

The development of Grosvenor House marked the completion of Phase One in the spring of 2019. HSBC employees relocated to the Heart of the City II after the multinational investment bank signed a fifteen-year lease to occupy the building.

The ground floor will have 5 retail units and the building will step up in height from 3 storeys to 8 storeys on the new build side.

The new office space features a bright and spacious central atrium, a stylish rooftop terrace and modern offices. The building also includes retail outlets and contemporary landscaped public spaces.

Five Ways Square

This city block will comprise of a diverse range of buildings and uses, all centered around a unique dining court. The mixed-use site may also include events space, a boutique cinema and a unique makers/sellers space in Leah’s Yard.

Laycock House

The Heart of the City II scheme saw two new blocks, Block B and Block C on Pinstone Street, granted planning approval earlier this year. Laycock House sits in a prominent location occupying a central position with Cross Burgess Street to the North, Pinstone Street to the East and Charles Street to the West.

Five Ways Cross is the name of the pedestrianised interchange where Cross Burgess Street, Charles Street, Cambridge Street, and Wellington Street meet.

John Lewis

The scheme comprises 364 dwellings with a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroomed apartments, which will be built and operated under the Build to Rent Sector model, creating a community of residents who will contribute to the future wealth and vitality of the city centre.

The existing John Lewis building will remain its current location and current service provisions will be reworked along Burgess Street with enhanced links from the Peace Gardens through to Five Ways Square and ultimately to Wellington Street.

Commercial space will be provided at ground floor levels, providing active frontages to Rockingham and Wellington Streets. The building will also adopt the courtyard model that is prevalent in the local Victorian warehouses. The development will have a stepped roof, responding to the sloping typology of the site and forming a transition between the formal city centre and the more historic Devonshire Quarter.

Carver Street

This city block is a stone’s throw from Charter Square and the Devonshire Quarter and will accommodate the highest diversity of use in the scheme. Anchored by a bold new office development with a striking lobby accessed from Carver Street and having retail units on the ground floor. Immediately adjacent to this new office block is the existing 38 Carver Street building. This building will be refurbished and re-clad and the parking provision for the project will be by way of a multi-storey parking deck.

Vita and NCP

Sitting to the West of the Heart of the City II site and providing retail and leisure facilities with student accommodation and parking. The current NCP car park will be redeveloped into an iconic centrepiece for the Heart of the City II scheme, which will complete the redevelopment of Charter Square. The former British Telecom tower was extensively refurbished in 2016, providing upmarket student residences by Vita Student.

Kangaroo Works

An important residential site within the master plan for The Heart of the City II will bring over 340 homes within a £50 million residential building. Situated at the corner of Rockingham Street and Wellington Street, close to Devonshire Green, is a mainly cleared site, which has been acquired by a joint venture company, made up by Ridgeback Group and Angelo Gordon.

Credit: Whittam Cox Architects

The use of brick as the primary material takes inspiration from Sheffield’s urban heritage and the name Kangaroo Works will pay homage to the former tool factory, which was as an instrumental part of the site in the early nineteenth century.

The group has appointed Sheffield-based Brantingham Homes (Urban) to manage the scheme, working alongside locally-based Whittam Cox Architects and construction partner Henry Boot Construction Ltd.


Further Developments Across the City

The 21 million pound restoration project of the iconic Eye Witness Works and Ceylon Works will also see the construction of a six-storey building on the site, which was formerly home to the Brunswick Hotel. The development will begin the regeneration of the area, which will include 97 loft apartments and town houses, along with a 900 square foot café bar.

The first phase of development will comprise of 200,000 square feet of Grade A office space, 350 build to rent homes, a multi-storey car park and quality landscaped public spaces.

A private development of 50 postgraduate luxury apartments is currently under construction at Fargate Court overlooking Fargate and Chapel Walk. The 4.6 million pound scheme is due to be completed by the end of 2019.

Castlegate and Sheffield Castle

Sheffield City Council has allocated nearly £800,000 from its Capital Growth Fund to kick-start the regeneration of the Castlegate area by making it more attractive, modern and vibrant. The money has been earmarked to transform disused retail outlets, to create a new green corridor and to help protect the city’s Old Town Hall as well as financing a major architectural dig and the uncovering of the underground River Sheaf.

New Era Square

New Era Square is a vibrant new destination in Sheffield currently under construction to produce offices, shops, restaurants, living accommodation and fourteen private residences centred around a pedestrianised plaza.

Fitzalan Square and The Knowledge Gateway

Work on Phase Two is now in progress to complete the remaining office blocks on this 5-block gateway development. The project has been entirely funded by inbound Chinese investment and is being developed by New Era Development (UK) Ltd. The scheme has been dubbed “Sheffield’s Chinatown” and “Sheffield’s very own version of New York’s Times Square” and has been well documented in the national press.

Fitzalan Square has been cleared in preparation for The Knowledge Gateway. This project aims to transform the corridor running along the Lower Sheaf to the Porter Valley. It will seek to improve links between several key destinations and development areas within the city. The project will enhance accessibility and safety and will include the improvement of Sheffield Midland Station, the cultural industries quarter, the digital campus, and Sheffield Hallam’s University campus. Key locations such as Fitzalan Square and streets such as Esperanto Place and Paternoster Row will be transformed as part of the process.

Deacon House

A multi-million-pound refurbishment on Eyre Street to bring new retail and commercial opportunities to the Moor area of Sheffield. The building was formerly home to HSBC and will create 6 retail opportunities and contemporary office space specifically aimed at smaller, creative and digital industries.

Michael Harrison and Jayne Thornes with their Labradoodle - Hector Having spent years searching for the perfect plot of land on which to build themselves their forever home, Glenn and Anita Day’s hunt was over after one call from Blenheim’s Managing Director Paul Blackburn.

helping to design something to suit you.” “If you’ve never done something like this before, you’ll need someone like Paul,” says Anita. This is especially true when it comes to handling potential problems along the way. It’s impossible for any build project to run without any hiccups, whether minor or major, and when this happens, it’s important you’ve got someone there to keep the calm.

Glenn and Anita initially met Paul when they popped in to take a quick look around another house Blenheim were building, and “Paul being Paul”, he gave up his time to show the two around the house.

“You can call Paul any day, any time, and he’ll pick up the phone,” says Glenn. “He’s calm. Everything could fall down around him and he’d be calm.”

“There was no question that the quality of the build was far superior to any we’d ever seen,” says Glenn, and this is why when Paul called them to tell them that he had found the perfect plot of land, the couple instantly trusted him with their project.

One of the main ways Blenheim have helped make Glenn and Anita’s dream home a reality is in the design and placement of their bar.

With plenty of experience refurbishing and building homes, Glenn and Anita looked to the Blenheim team for help when it came to the architectural and project management side of things.

In their previous home, their bar was isolated from the main house, which meant it wasn’t used as much as it could have been. A large room, it also felt like it needed a lot more people to fill it. Now, their bar is specifically situated to be closer to the main living areas making it more accessible and therefore catering for entertaining as well as for socialising. While still a decent size, the room has a much cosier feel and gets a lot more use than their old bar ever did.

When you take on a home-build or refurbishment yourself, “its like a job,” says Anita. “Everything is up to you, you’re in control of time, and you’re in control of what gets done when.” “When you work with Blenheim, its their team that takes control of the timing and planning, meaning you can use your extra time to focus on things like interior design and the finishes within the home (though Paul loves getting involved with this side too).”

Now that they’ve been living in their home, for two and a half years, it seems Glenn and Anita couldn’t be any happier that they chose to work with Blenheim. They tell us that choosing Blenheim is choosing quality. Nobody pays closer attention to detail or invests as much time and passion into a project as Paul and his team, and they wouldn’t want it any other way.

“While a man of many talents, one of the things Paul and his team are great at is taking your lifestyle and building and

Autumn Interior Design Trends

Jewel Shades Elegant deep colours have been popular for a while and they are here to stay this autumn. Green, blue and purple tones can make a bold statement when used as a colour for your sofa, chairs or painted as a feature wall. More subtle uses of the palette could be in your cushions, throws and lamps.

Brutalism A 1940’s French architectural movement, Brutalism was a style of architecture with a heavy focus on concrete and harsh-looking design. The style will soon be making an appearance in our home decorations. Examples of this trend may be displayed by chunky sculptures made from raw materials and rugs and cushions with harsh designs.

Stained Oak Moving away from brown furniture, autumn welcomes stained oak for a more muted, contemporary style. Monochrome stains such as light grey and black are set to be popular and feature in pieces like bedside tables, coffee tables and wardrobes. Most of the colour palettes in homes are neutral, so stained oak furniture is a great way to create a balance.

Mixing Patterns In the past, it has been frowned upon in the interior design world to clash your patterns but in recent years it has been heavily embraced. Rather than mixing bright colours, keep the focus on a similar colour scheme and use different patterns to create a contrast.

Tartan It wouldn’t be autumn without throwing some tartan into your home dÊcor. Tartan is a classical pattern for this time of year, however this year it has returned in the form of a more natural colour palette as opposed to the traditional red, green and yellow.

Autumn Wreaths Wreaths are no longer reserved just for Christmas. Interior designers are using wreaths for decoration made up from autumn leaves, pinecones, twigs and autumnal flowers.
