Bournemouth-based entrepreneur and stay-at-home mum, Vanessa Addison, celebrates finding her 40th development site in the area as part of her dynamic property development company, Green Bee Homes Limited.  The business was formed 3 years ago as a result of a school run where Vanessa, who is profoundly deaf, spotted an ideal plot of land for development, and is now set to turnover £3 million this year. 

Green Bee Homes' 40th development site is based in Granby Road, Muscliff and will consist of 2 new-build bungalows as well as an existing bungalow.  In addition to this site, Vanessa is working on 10 new-build houses, 4 flats and has 14 plots of land in various stages of planning this year alone.

Director, Vanessa Addison, added "before spotting our first plot of land on the school run 3 years ago, I had no prior knowledge of property development.  I learnt everything from scratch, including how to find ideal plots of land, to planning, right through to developing our own building style with an integral 'porthole' design feature.  As I am profoundly deaf, I also wanted to make sure that all our homes comply fully with being disabled friendly. 
Many of our properties are sold before they are even put on the market, and the government-backed 'help to buy' equity scheme for new-builds has helped a lot of our clients to buy one of our homes with just a 5% deposit saved."

Vanessa went on to say “I was looking for a flexible career that I could fit around our children's school hours, so setting up Green Bee Homes has been fantastic and it gives me a great deal of pride seeing the finished homes generally bought by first time buyers. There is such a shortage of starter homes in the area it is vital we free up more land to allow young people to get a foot on the ladder.”

Green Bee Homes is committed to building outstanding affordable green properties within the region.  The company offers everything from new-build homes and flats; sympathetic conversions of historic buildings; use of cutting edge environmental technology such as solar PV, as well as conversions of commercial premises into residential units.
