FLAT REFURBISHMENT

SANDBANKS

4 Fairwinds • Brownsea Road • Sandbanks • Poole


Following recommendation, Mr & Mrs Pritchard approached William Bowley to tackle the refurbishment of their newly acquired holiday home in Poole. Nestled within the heart of the acclaimed Sandbanks Peninsular, “Fairwinds” was bought as a bolthole to escape the hustle and bustle of a busy life in South Wales. Having sustained a long standing leak in the kitchen, and somewhat spurious “DIY” attempts the property was in a sorry state, requiring immediate attention.

Following recommendation, Mr & Mrs Pritchard approached us to tackle the refurbishment of their newly acquired holiday home in Poole. Nestled within the heart of the acclaimed Sandbanks Peninsular, “Fairwinds” was bought as a bolthole to escape the hustle and bustle of a busy life in South Wales. Having sustained a long standing leak in the kitchen, and some somewhat spurious “DIY” attempts the property was in a sorry state, requiring immediate attention.
A new metal frame ceiling throughout enabled a full electrical re-wire, inset spotlights together with acoustic insulation. The old hot water cylinder was replaced with a pressurized “megaflow” cylinder providing a far superior hot water system & with no gas in the block, this was a crucial upgrade, allowing for the installation of the new power shower. The fully tiled bathroom benefits from a newly constructed boiler cupboard & large step in shower area. The rest of the flat is fully re-plastered with all new skirting & architrave and light oak finished doors to complement. Also with absolutely no air extraction from either the kitchen or bathroom, new outside ducting is concealed within the ceiling void – essential, we believe, for open plan living. Night storage heaters are replaced with the client’s desire for low profile under floor heating throughout & with a neatly designed kitchen & breakfast bar, it makes this the perfect weekend retreat by the sea.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

"After purchasing our flat in July 2012 we immediately started enquiring about property developers…William Bowley was mentioned by several contacts! We initially met three contractors to discuss plans and seek their advice. The creative ideas and passion shown by Nick and Nick made us warm to them. On receiving quotations, their attention to detail, clearly listing all tasks attached with costs gave us confidence that these guys were true professionals. On awarding the contract, work commenced immediately. Throughout the project we were kept updated of working progress and a constant stream of photos were attached for our viewing pleasure – This we really enjoyed! On a commercial basis, William Bowley are honest and transparent. Never was there a deviation from the initial quotation unless we requested an amendment / upgrade to plan. The finished project completely excelled our expectations and the attention to detail / finish really is first class. We would have no hesitation in recommending William Bowley to any party. Nick and Nick have been an absolute joy to work with – Well done guys!!!!"
