George Clarke's Remarkable Renovations S2

George Clarke meets the people breathing new life into unused and unloved buildings, transforming local landmarks into unique, luxury family homes that celebrate their past. Across Britain, over 600,000 buildings lie abandoned. Nearly a third of them are former businesses. Shops, post offices, pubs and banks are closing down daily as our high streets enter a new era. Could these forgotten buildings help alleviate the country's housing shortage? George Clarke meets the brave souls trying to revive these overlooked properties, transforming obsolete structures into extraordinary family homes that reflect their history while firmly embracing the future. For some, the renovation journey is an enriching experience, but others struggle to realise their dreams.
