Experts hail ‘astronomical’ property work
PROPERTY experts hailed the transformation of a former grocers and beauty shop after it appeared on TV series Homes Under the Hammer.
Presenter and former England footballer Dion Dublin visited the premises on Newchurch Road in Stacksteads after it was snapped up at auction by Michelle Procter.
We reported on the building’s eight-month restoration into Michelle Procter Independent Financial Services last November, and the BBC programme aired earlier this week.
The £40,000 makeover was carried out by Michelle’s father Jack Procter and partner Chris Dalton and received praise from Dublin and local property experts.
Dublin said: “Wow this is quite the transformation. This place looks ready to run a ●● Michelle Procter successful business from. Dad Jack has certainly been busy. [He] has done a brilliant, professional job.”
Andy Lee, from Reeds Rains estate agents, said: “The changes are astronomical, far in excess of what I expected the property to look like.
“They’ve done a superb job all the way through.
“It’s practical and looks good and upstairs has been done to a very high standard.”
