A feeling of light and space on every floor of this beautiful home...
GCD were asked to help with the top to bottom renovation of this Victorian house in Fulham last year, having worked for the client’s family on many projects over the years. The brief was to open out the house for the young family who were moving in, creating large interconnecting spaces with a light and airy feel.
Lower ground or basement renovations present two specific challenges - ensuring a seamless connection between the basement and the rest of the house and finding a way to bring natural light to the lower floors.
A particular highlight for us was the fabulous master bedroom and bathroom which takes up an entire floor. Working closely with our bathroom designer and our client (who has a wonderful eye for design) the master bathroom features modern porcelain tiles laid in a herringbone style and antique brass fittings which sit beautifully together.
Alongside the bespoke kitchen and joinery throughout the home created by skilled craftsmen, it offers a real sanctuary from busy London life.
But the result was something truly special for the homeowners. They told us: “We honestly couldn’t recommend GCD more highly and still can’t believe the complete transformation the house has gone through in the six month time frame we gave you!”
"For 30 years I produced 8 books in a tiny room that I grandly called my study. But thanks to GCD, we extended our Grade 2 listed house to give me a fabulous new, and inspiring study and library. I live in this sunny new room, have produced two books there and cannot imagine why we didn’t do this extension sooner. The whole process has hugely improved my quality of life."

"We employed GCD to undertake a large refurbishment to our home, which included a new basement. The work was undertaken with care and professionalism and the team brought exciting new ideas and finishes to the scheme. The project came in within budget and the after-project service was second to none. Overall our dealings with GCD were a pleasure from start to finish and we would not hesitate to recommend Paul and his team to anyone."

"I have worked with GCD on a number of projects both in terms of private & investment properties going back over 15 years. They have an incredibly talented team who want to get the job done properly, efficiently & who are not fazed by challenges. If they have a motto it should be: 'there is always a way' - because they always find it, however challenging the request..."

"...They are incredibly supportive along the way given how stressful building projects can be & I’ve always been absolutely delighted with the end result. Once the job is done, they are very responsive in terms of follow-up support. I have recommended them widely to friends & have never been disappointed."

“GCD are a joy to work with. They are honest, transparent with costs, knowledgeable & have a 'nothing is impossible' can-do attitude which is, in my experience, so rare. Their workmanship is of the highest quality! I would have no hesitation in recommending them, & have done many times over the number of years that we have worked together on various projects, large & small.”

"We used Green County Developments for two major projects in the ground-floor refurbishment of our Victorian terraced home. On both occasions, Paul Green and his team proved themselves as highly professional and considerate builders, skilled, helpful and resourceful, and at all times very pleasant people to work with. We would certainly use them again and would (and have) highly recommended them to others. This was absolutely a five-star service."

"Green County undertook a refurbishment of our Victorian home in 2018/2019 and did an incredible job. Not only did they complete the job on time and in budget but they exceeded my (high) expectations. The team’s attention to detail, work ethic, problem-solving and customer care are second to none. I would (and do) recommend their work unreservedly!"
