One of the best ways to add value to a property is to take on a renovation project such as this. Obviously the success of a project like this in terms of monetary rewards are depends on how much you intend to do yourselves verses how much you pay a professionals, plus making sure that you get the best deals on any purchases and so fourth. 

Taking on a Grade II property will also mean that you will have to work hard to make sure the changes you make conform to planning, often involving a higher quality product which is more expensive than if you took on a renovation project which does not involve such rigid conformity. However this is a truly individual property so a successful renovation could be potentially a truly rewarding one.
