CRL is working with Bellis Homes on the conversion of a Grade II listed former convent into 11 luxury apartments and detached house in North Barnet.
The construction insurance specialist was selected by the Essex-based upmarket luxury house builder to source structural defects warranties for the sympathetic conversion of Littleberries into stunning the new homes.
Littleberries Estate, a convent school run by the Sisters of Charity St Vincent between 1887 – 2007, is located within the Mill Hill Conservation Area and the North Barnet Area of Special Character in north London.
Bellis Homes purchased the site with consent to convert the abandoned school house into 11 luxury apartments and to renovate the West Lodge, a single detached dilapidated building, into a three-bedroom house.
The one, two and three bedroom apartments range in size between 1,800 sq ft – 4,000 sq ft. Bellis Homes has submitted a further planning application to provide roof terraces on several of the apartments which will offer spectacular views across the Mill Hill countryside.
CRL was appointed at the beginning of the project to source a 10-year warranty certification to protect against any future structural issues.
Mark Hedley, Business Manager for Bellis Homes, said: “In the past we worked with NHBC until one of our close contacts suggested that we should consider switching to CRL to source warranties for our developments.
