The most populated area of Hertfordshire, Hemel Hempstead grew dramatically after World War II as one of the New Towns built to house the large population displaced from London by the Blitz. The first houses of the New Town were built in 1949 in Longlands, Adeyfield. Enjoying continual popularity as a residential area, building continued throughout the 1950s and 1960s providing housing for thousands in residential neighbourhoods with their own amenities.
Many of Hemel Hempstead’s properties are therefore post-war semi’s, designed to provide maximum living space for growing families. These properties, whilst spacious downstairs have large attic spaces perfect for converting.
A loft conversion in a post war semi-detached property will require a part wall agreement, but more often than not will not provide planning permission. Abbey Lofts can guide you through the legal requirements, addressing any concerns you may have.
Where you have a large unused loft space ripe for conversion, the only restrictions are your own imagination! What would your Hemel Hempstead loft conversion provide you with? Perhaps a home cinema room kitted out with all the gadgets you can think of. Or why not create the ideal teenage girl’s bedroom with velux windows, a separate dressing room, homework area in the eaves and ensuite shower room? Maybe all you require is an additional living space – imagine if your kids had their own chill out space at the top of the house, leaving you to enjoy your evenings in peace?
An attic space can easily be converted into an extra bedroom, home office, craft room, storage room, dressing room or just a large luxurious bathroom. Whatever your ideas, call Abbey Lofts today and see your dreams become a reality.
