At London Block Management, historic buildings one of our passions. They require a different kind of expertise and approach to the norm, and we love the challenges that they can bring. Our portfolio includes numerous historic and listed buildings across London and we are always on the hunt for stunning buildings to add to it.
Managing historic properties makes our job more interesting and exciting thanks to their unique character and requirements. Already having a focus on historic buildings means that we most likely have dealt with the challenges they can present and already have niche expertise that some our competitors won't have encountered.
What is a historic building?
Historic buildings are buildings of special architectural or historic interest. Many, but not all, of these are listed buildinsg;– most buildings dating from before 1840 are listed. There are currently three categories on the Statutory List of Buildings
in England and Wales ranging from Grade I with greatest significance through Grade II* to Grade II – the below table shows a summary of the three categories.
We manage many historic buildings in our portfolio – ranging from buildings in every category of listing through to 1960s buildings that have been listed because they are deemed to have architectural merit – so likely to be historic buildings of the future. If you live in a historic or listed building and would like to discuss how we can work together, we would be delighted to hear from you.
