Hackney boasts a large stock of Georgian and Victorian Housing, the majority of which are ideal for loft conversions. Already a haven for loft conversions, Hackney boasts large areas of residential accommodation occupied by a diverse population making it one of the most cosmopolitan London Boroughs.
Areas of the borough such as Hoxton and Shoreditch are key to the London Arts Scene, and development of the area has caused land value to rocket. The older residential properties that remain amidst the new high rise developments and warehouse conversions now command premium prices, and it is no surprise that many Shoreditch residents are choosing to convert their lofts to increase the size of their property.
As land in the areas of Hackney Wick, Hackney Marshes and Homerton has been claimed for the 2012 Olympic Games, the London Borough of Hackney is one of the Host Boroughs. The regeneration this will bring to the Borough is sure to attract an influx in residents, increasing demand for family homes and rental properties.
A loft conversion in a Victorian Hackney property can allow for an additional bedroom to be created in the attic space, potentially transforming a standard family home into a great family home that would be much sought after on the open market. It is essential to plan your Hackney loft conversion carefully. What do you intend to use the new space for? Is it necessary to add an additional bathroom to your new loft space, or would an extra study or storage room be more useful?
