The details

City & Country is a niche property developer, specialising in the restoration of historically-listed buildings into residential properties. This 50-year-old family-owned business has been specialising in historic properties for 25 years buying old hospitals, asylums, schools and other listed buildings and transforming them into homes.

?The current market has created a real opportunity for us. Most developers won?t touch the types of project that we do with a bargepole,? says managing director Helen Moore.

The company buys the sites unconditionally, with no planning changes guaranteed. ?We find that we can then get the site at a better price. While these are all complex and challenging sites, we always know there is an angle for us,? says Moore.

Turnover at City & Country has grown from ?9m to ?19.1m in four years.
