Warm Beautiful Homes | Brinsford Farmhouse, Staffordshire
A £1m transformation project in Staffordshire has helped David Hill and Chris Maund launch property development company Warm Beautiful Homes. The company is looking to achieve ‘continuity in the countryside’ by saving traditional sites and transforming them into homes that combine style with modern-day comfort.

The duo have now completed their first project, taking Brinsford Farmhouse from auction and creating a three-storey, five-bed family property. David Hill, Owner of Warm Beautiful Homes said: “It has taken six months to complete, but it has definitely been worth it. We feel we have put a marker in the sand for what we can do, and delivered Wolverhampton and South Staffordshire a rare £1m home that will be very much in demand.”

Brinsford Farmhouse has undergone a complete strip-out to accentuate the high ceilings, wooden beams, traditional fireplaces, double-glazed sliding slash windows and double cornice detailing. Find out more…
