Homes Under The Hammer film at Peterborough property
A Peterborough property will feature on Homes under the Hammer after the crew visited a derelict property near the city yesterday (April 27).
Host Tommy Walsh came along to meet city-based property developers RKTJ Developments ltd after their successful bid on a village home for £209,750 and to find out their plans for it.
Business partners Julia Illot and Rimple Shah toured the three-bedroom house along with Tommy, talking him through their major refurbishment plans for the house including an extension – that will eventually turn the house into a five-bedroom property.
The team from the programme - in which experts uncover the tricks of property auction trade - say this is their biggest renovation project yet.
Speaking to Peterborough Matters, Julia llott said: “We did a telephone auction, it actually took place in Norwich on March 23. t took about 28 days for the auction process to complete and finished on April 20.
“Rimple and myself filmed on Wednesday with host Tommy Walsh alongside our partners Khilan Shah and Trevor Ilott.
“The house is a three-bedroom home just outside Peterborough in a conservation area. It needs a lot of work doing and is very derelict with new roofing, new bathrooms – it needs everything doing.
“We have put in a planning application to turn it into a five-bedroom executive house with a double extension at the back.
“The guide price for the house was £150,000 - we are estimating it will take us between six-nine months. But we will keep the TV crew informed with updates.
“We really enjoyed the filming experience. We were very nervous, it was very nerve-wracking but it was great in the end.
“Tommy Walsh was so lovely, we had a good laugh with him. We went through a bit about us and how we got into the property trade and then went through our plans for this house. We enjoyed the whole thing.”
The team at TJ properties and Developments have an extensive portfolio – from serviced apartments to refurbished homes across several locations. They said they are looking forward to this exciting new project and have also got two more projects lined up in the same village.
The show is currently in its 25th series and is aired on BBC One. You can watch it on iPlayer. This particular episode is likely to be aired within a year’s time.
