We're delighted to announce the completion of another successfully completed building restoration project funded solely by AHF loan finance.
The Romsey and District BPT has completed the restoration of a shop unit and two-bedroom flat above, whilst creating a new dwelling behind on what was previously a storage area.
5 Latimer Street was built in the mid-18th century and had lain empty when the Trust acquired it. It has undertaken a number of schemes since its formation in the 1970s to provide accommodation within the town, recycling any surplus funds into new restoration projects. This has improved the streetscape by the installation of a more sympathetic shop front, provided much-needed accommodation, and encouraged other neighbouring property owners to explore the re-use of other unused over-the-shop dwelling space. The AHF provided a loan of £325,000, which has been repaid in full and within term.
