Spa House, St. Neots
In March 2018, we purchased a rundown 2 bedroom flat in Spa House, in St. Neots Town Centre.
The flat been unoccupied for 2 years, but was on the top floor of a landmark building at the top of St. Neots High Street. When we viewed the flat, we saw the potential immediately and knew that it would be perfect as our first full time property refurbishment.
The purchase of the flat was finalised on the 31st March 2018, and we spent the next 6 weeks renovating the property. Whilst we did a lot of work ourselves, we had the help of a number of local tradesmen to help with the more specialised work. The fact that the flat was on the 3rd floor proved to be a major issue as work went on. We estimate that we climbed the 3 flights of stairs over 500 times during the renovation, often taking old furniture or rubble down the stairs, or new cupboards, tiles and fittings up them.
We finished the project by the end of June 2018, after which we decided to have a well earned rest, before we look for another project later in the year.
