Artwork Installed At Sheer House Redevelopment Site In West Byfleet

Plans to redevelop the centre of West Byfleet were approved by Woking Borough Council’s Planning Committee on 26th September 2017.  Curchods West Byfleet branch resides in the commercial offices at the base of Sheer House, the building which is at the centre of the redevelopment plans and is to be demolished and redeveloped along with West Byfleet library.

Whilst receiving mixed reviews from local residents, the proposals represent a significant investment and commitment to developing West Byfleet and will breath new life into the heart of the community. With work not due to start until late 2018 / early 2019, a number of commercial spaces look set to remain vacant at the base of Sheer House for the foreseeable future.

 

To improve the appearance of the commercial properties at the base of Sheer House, Curchods have created an art installation to decorate the vacant windows, previously occupied by HSBC and Thomas Cook, to bring some vibrancy and life to the area opposite the library.

 

 

Curchods are one of Surrey’s most successful estate agents, with 21 offices all situated within an hour commute of London Waterloo.  Our network of offices communicate together to bring buyers on the journey down from London, along the A3 corridor and introduce them to Surrey’s town’s and villages which they may not have previously considered as a place to call home – West Byfleet being one of these towns.  The art installation celebrates this fact – Linking You To London.

 

The artwork celebrates a timeline of key moments in both West Byfleet and Curchods company history:

1887 West Byfleet station opens

Following a period of property development in the parish throughout the 1800’s, West Byfleet train station was opened in 1887 to facilitate commuting into central London. Its opening cemented a bright future for West Byfleet, the legacy of which still exists today.

1938 Where it all began

Founded by Peter Curchod in 1938, Curchods began as an independent Chartered Surveying practice in a Grade II Listed, Dower House in Church Street, Weybridge. This fine Grade II Listed building continues to operate as Curchods Weybridge Residential Sales and Lettings office today.

1990 Private ownership

In May 1990 John Slatter and Andrew Dewar, both of whom had exemplary reputations and experience within the property industry, rebranded the residential sales business ‘Curchods’ and together became Joint Senior Partners. Curchods remains in private ownership to this day.

1993 Curchods West Byfleet branch opens

Despite the early 1990’s whitnessing the worst housing market recession since the 1930’s, Curchods dedication to excellent service proved to be a winning formula. The business took off quickly and methodically expanded its network of offices.

1998 House prices up 268%

Since 1998 the value of residential property in KT14 has increased by an average of 268.86%. The average house price in 1998 in KT14 was £301,664 compared to an average house price today of £515,901.*Source Zoopla.co.uk

1999 London Eye opened

The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. The structure is 443 feet tall and the wheel has a diameter of 394 feet. When it opened to the public on 31st December 1999, it was the world’s tallest Ferris wheel.

2000 Millennium Dome

Located on the Greenwich Peninsula in South East London and costing circa £738m to complete, the Millennium Dome was constructed to originally house the Millennium Experience – a major exhibition celebrating the beginning of the third millennium.

2007 Financial Crisis

The Curchods West Byfleet office has arranged over £439m worth of property sales since the Financial Crisis of 2007. As the UK overcomes ever-changing political and financial climates, you can always rely on our ability to secure an excellent price for your property.*

2016 Brexit Vote

Since the Brexit vote on 23rd June 2016, Curchods network of offices have agreed a property sale in Surrey every 2 hours!*

 

The illustration takes you on a journey through the London skyline from grandeur of Victorian architecture to the modern day contemporary marvels like The Shard and The London Eye.

 

Curchods West Byfleet

Until the redevelopment starts, Curchods West Byfleet will still be occupying our office at the base of Sheer House, helping people move home in the village and surrounding area.

The West Byfleet team offers clients a combined 44 years experience of the local property market.
