The Pebbles, Church Rd, Bournemouth
This is a good example of densification of housing. Two of the original houses, such as those on the left of the picture have been demolished and been replaced with two small apartment blocks one of which is shown on the right. A building which once was just one living unit is thus replaced by a new building with six separate living units.
18-20 Church Rd was completed in March 2007 at a cost of approximately 1.0 million. It consists of two apartment blocks each with six two-bedroom apartments and associated parking and gardens. There is a fair bit of profit to be made as 12 apartments sell for approx. 2.6 million at the original price of 220,000. Even if the two plots cost 400k each, it is still 800k profit. The top floor flats sell for less as they have sloping ceilings. Currently the lower floor flats are on offer at local estate agents at 215k and the top floor flats at 150k.
