Property developer Paul Nash of Kooks Ltd in Hove specified Juliette balconies in his East Grinstead development.
The project is a luxury gated development of three mews houses in the centre of the town. Set back from the main street in a secluded position, each three bedroom house has a large (2.84m) standard Juliette balcony on the master bedroom at the rear of the property and a bespoke 15sq metre balcony with hand rails at the front to the second bedroom, which could also be used as a study or dining room.
Keeping the clean lines and modern look
The houses are a contemporary design, described by Paul Nash as ‘modern and funky’. Local planners praised the development, as they are ‘a bit different’ from the norm. The properties look out onto the local church and Paul wanted to take advantage of the views in safety while keeping the clean lines and modern look. He found the Juliette balcony met his requirements and added to the appeal. Using clear glass with no vertical posts or clamps gives an uninterrupted view from the patio doors. Most importantly for this project the un-cluttered glass balcony looks good from inside and out.
The commercial angle
The development is nearing completion and installations have gone smoothly. The first house is already sold, for £325,000. Although Paul chose Juliette balconies primarily for the look he also had to consider the commercial angle, looking for high quality, a competitive price and a short lead time. Balcony’s products fitted into this criteria and Paul feels they have added value to his development. Pleased with the service and products from Balcony, he will use them again in future projects.
