At the start of this project, Linnel Hill was a traditional two-storey Northumbrian farmhouse. It had little insulation, draughty windows, an old oil boiler and a leaking conservatory. The brief was, by extension and renovation, to transform it into a home suited to twenty-first century living for a young family. The principle requirements were for a large day-to-day living space incorporating kitchen and dining, and a master bedroom suite, together with four further bedrooms.
Joplings Head of Architecture, Dan Gracey, has transformed the house by adding a large contemporary extension, converting the roof space and re-configuring the staircase, and providing a glazed link between new and old. These are harmoniously combined by the use of form and materials to provide a low energy design which is, at the same time, light, spacious and elegant. A glass link accommodates a gallery landing between the original house and the master suite. This provides the opportunity for an airy workspace looking out over a courtyard. It provides a fluid connection between the kitchen and dining areas and the rest of the house and gives the opportunity for the spaces to be flooded with light.
The project has been shortlisted in the prestigious RICS North East Renaissance Awards. Winners will be announced at an Oscars-style ceremony at Newcastle Civic Centre on 19th April 2013, hosted by TV’s Restoration Man, George Clarke.

Having succeeded in their extensive re-branding and system improvement projects, Joplings Property Consultants are extending their business improvement plan to encompass their business vehicles. Each of the Ripon and Thirsk branches now has a brand new Volkswagen Polo to assist staff in their daily duties.
Michael Stephenson, General Manager, said “We were keen to introduce company vehicles for many reasons. Foremost, these cars are incredibly safe and economical which is a primary concern for all road users in these times. Furthermore, they look very professional in the new livery and will alleviate the need for staff to provide their own vehicle for work”.
Joplings are proud to announce the launch of their new Property Auction to enhance their services and compliment their growing business portfolio.
The property auction benefits from utilising the successful auction house, Thirsk Farmer’s Auction Mart (Parent company of Joplings) which re-located to brand new premises just off the A19.
Joplings estate agents continue their branding upgrade with the launch of their new website (www.joplings.com) to compliment their on-going service improvement plan.
The website, which directly links-in with the latest Vebra Live software, boasts an excellent property search function covering all departments and areas with detailed advice on all aspects of the property market. There is also the facility to follow them on facebook and twitter, keeping you up-to-date with their latest developments.
Joplings are in the process of undertaking a complete re-branding, reflecting the services it offers to clients, repositioning the business and image moving forward. This transformation began a few months ago with the installation of the latest cutting edge property software, VebraLive.
The system has many features to support all aspects of property management, most notable of which are the registration of applicants, proactively matching and distributing property details in any format, automatic advertising of property to all the major property portals, and complete chain management once a sale has been agreed.
