as we set up a new service

Druetts Close

The story so far...

Druetts Close is going to receive a make over. The property, which used to be a supported living service for people with mental health needs, has been empty for the past few years.

Druetts Close is a quiet cul-de-sac in Horfield. The property is currently a four bed house with one bathroom upstairs, a ground floor WC and shared kitchen and lounge. The property also has a double garage attached.

We are aiming to breathe new life into the building by turning it into a spacious three bed house with a ground floor self contained flat for people with learning disabilities. We have a nine week build in front of us with the first tenant due to arrive in early July 2021.

Exciting times!

The plan

The plan is to convert the double garage into a self-contained flat with its own front door, perfect for someone who wants to live with a high degree of independence. We’ll add a shower room upstairs and a shower downstairs. We’ll also add a sleep-in room for staff and a small utility room for the washing machine and tumble dryer.

Moving from four bedrooms to three bedrooms means there will be more communal space for the people we support, offering them more opportunities to take part in activities together or spend time alone when that’s what they feel they need. We’ve even squeezed in a snug upstairs for some chill time.

A brand new kitchen will be installed and the existing bathroom will be replaced.

The property will be painted throughout and new flooring will be laid.

Updates from the site

Longcroft the contractors took possession of the property on the 8th April to begin the “rip out”.
