Principle Estate Management has won the contract to manage the Grade II-listed former Shrewsbury hospital, now converted into luxury homes and named Leighton Park. Many were Victorian buildings at the former Shelton hospital on the outskirts of Shrewsbury, along with some newly built properties.
Principle has won the contract from Shropshire Homes, experts in sensitively redeveloping historical buildings into impressive residential sites.
Brett Williams, Managing Director of Principle, says that the appointment came after Leighton Park residents’ association had been unhappy with the previous agent’s performance.
He said, “I’ve known Shropshire Homes for many years since being introduced by a client, and I’m impressed at their painstaking refurbishment of the substantial 19th century buildings.”
Richard Shackleton, MD, Shropshire Homes, said, “We are property developers but we love the buildings we are involved with and care about our customers’ post-sales experience.
“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 which meant I was becoming increasingly involved in the property management.”
