Rice’s Hill, East Grinstead update – March 16

The Bastien Jack team are pleased to confirm planning permission has been granted for a new development of twelve new One and Two bedroom apartments in East Grinstead, the site will also incorporate two penthouses. We have appointed a design team who are developing conception/planning drawings  to construction drawings.


The site has already had Soil Investigation tests and a Topographical Survey to assist with the foundation design and all results so far have been positive.

We are developing the internal specification but will base on our current well received spec used in Phoenix House Phase 1 and Phase 2.

Joseph Gilbert, our newly appointed Project Manager will take the lead on this site as well as Saxley Court.

There is keen interest in the properties, please give our Lincoln office a call if you want to reserve off plan.

Kind regards

Phase 1 and 2 of East Grinstead come to a close with a team site visit.

The Bastien Jack team had a sneaky day out of the office last week to see the fruits of their labour.
The site at Phoenix House, East Grinstead which was formerly a substantial office used by the Health and Safety Executive has now been converted to 28 luxury apartments.  Minor works continue over Christmas to add the finishing touches to a couple of the units but largely the project is now complete.
The team have done a great job of keeping this project on track and getting the best value out of the land and delivering a great product.  Each unit has mechanical ventilation and heat recovery units, highly energy efficient LED lighting, high gloss fitted kitchens, carpets, ergonomically designed bathrooms and allocated secure parking.  We’ve already had 18 completions onsite and the team are now making final preparations to hand over the apartments to each buyer.
PS. If you missed this opportunity we have phase 3 coming along soon which is 12 new build apartments on the town centre site.

Cheltenham Site Completion

The site is now all but complete.  The units look amazing.  The final snagging matters will continue for a number of days, which is normal, but the road on Bloomsbury Street is now to get its top coat this Wednesday.


The units are now selling fast.  I think the election caused some uncertainty amongst buyers but they are now out in force and we expect the units to be all sold (STC) by next week.

Phoenix House Update

Phoenix House is turning into a model project.  It is absolutely on budget and on time.  The building is looking great.


The team are entering a period of first and second fix trades following each other round.


We are approaching the period where the appliances are arriving ready to be fitted.  We’re making arrangements to properly secure the building and then the kitchens and bathrooms can be second fixed.


Sales are happening with almost 50% sold already!!!

Cheltenham Site Update

We’re almost there, with the final trades working hard to get the units finished.



The render looks amazing and is designed to reduce maintenance and enhance durability.


The kitchens are arriving as and when required and being fitted now.



High quality fittings have been used throughout the properties, with simple but effective touches like soft closing toilet seats.  The internal doors in particular are extremely high quality giving the feel of contemporary luxury and solidity.
