Athelstan Road Property Two

Principle of Development

This property was purchased by Thanet District council in November  2013. It was previously a 12 room House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) with shared facilities.  It was a centre of anti-social behaviour and caused many issues to adjoining and surrounding neighbours.  The property was also left empty for some time making it increasingly attractive to squatters and criminal activity.

Character and appearance

The building is a Victorian three storey semi-detached property, which also includes a large basement.  When originally built it would have been used as one family home.  It was also used as a hotel,

Renovation work

This 12 room HMO has been converted into one two-bed flat & two three-bedroom maisonettes. The renovation works were completed in September 2016.

Works by Standage & Co Ltd included:

  • Asbestos removal
  • Damp proofing
  • Electrical re-wiring
  • New internal layout
  • New windows
  • New kitchens and bathrooms
  • New roof
  • Full insulation
