A Grade II Listed former 19th century hospital in Shropshire that has been converted into luxury homes is to be looked after by Principle Estate Management.

Principle won the contract from Shropshire Homes, who are experts in sensitively redeveloping historical buildings into impressive residential sites.

Brett Williams, Managing Director of Principle, said that the appointment came after Leighton Park residents’ association became unhappy with the previous agent’s performance. He said, “I’ve known Shropshire Homes for many years having originally been introduced by one of our freeholder clients and I’m impressed at their painstaking refurbishment of these substantial 19th century buildings.”

Brett added: “We are delighted to be appointed to manage the estate with the full approval of the residents’ association, and we’re looking forward to working hard to ensure the development is properly looked after for many years to come.”

Richard Shackleton, Managing Director of Shropshire Homes, said, “We are still on site developing the final stages of this conversion and it was clear that a change of agent was required given the regular feedback received from the residents.

“There will be much for Principle to deal with on the takeover and initial setup and then to get things back on track, but we’re very confident that they will deliver the services required.”

Principle Estate Management was launched in 2018 by Brett Williams, the former head of residential property management at CPBigwood in Birmingham, and a past- Chairman of ARMA.
