Town House • Westbourne • Bournemouth

With generous accommodation over three floors and superb location within a private development twixt the beaches of westcliff and the shops and restaurants of Westbourne, this was an ideal property to purchase. This house has now had the cosmetic update it sorely needed. Opting for warm neutrals throughout the client has created an easygoing ambiance in which anyone could kick back and relax. A new kitchen, bathrooms, flooring and redecorated throughout, we know this house is now set up to bring much enjoyment to its new owners over the coming years.

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.


The two Nicks are not just wonderful people to work with but entirely trustworthy and reliable. Our house is now amazing. This is because they have made excellent suggestions for us to consider and have gone beyond the boundary to ensure excellent results, giving as much huge attention to small details as to the larger ones. They and their contractors showed lots of consideration to our neighbours that we really appreciate. We certainly have no reservations in recommending Nick and Nick as they deserve to be very successful. Many thanks.
