Refurbishment Case Study – Bruntsfield Place, Edinburgh
This property was located in Bruntsfield Place, Edinburgh and had been let out for a number of years. The kitchen and bathroom had reached the end of their useful life so we met with the client to discuss the best options.
The existing kitchen was very small and there was a good sized box room that could be combined with a recess off the livingroom. The 2 bedroom property was reconfigured to create an internal kitchen, allowing us to increase the number of bedrooms to 3 and also to create an en suite shower room off the master bedroom.
This shows the recess from the livingroom being combined with the box room to create an internal kitchen.

The rental was increased from £840 per month to £1550, that’s 84%! The cost of the work was less than £25,000, including refurbishment of the windows and carpeting/floor coverings throughout. The capital value of the property was also obviously increased as a result.
We project-managed this upgrading from start to finish.
