Jenny’s involvement in the housebuilding industry began in 1978, when aged 17, she began work in her father’s company, Moody Homes Limited. Here she gained valuable experience, working in each of the departments from land acquisition, construction, interior design and specifications, through to sales of completed houses.
Having obtained a thorough grounding in the industry, in 1983 she set up her own company, Jenny Moody Properties Limited at the age of 23. The aim of the company was to renovate older, character properties to set herself apart from Moody Homes building more conventional new properties. This involved visiting auctions to bid for houses in need of renovation and after acquisition carefully planning how to best bring life back to these once beautiful homes.
At this time, Jenny also developed a great interest in barn conversions and completed several successful projects, the latest of which is the head office for Jenny Moody Properties. This barn complex had laid untouched and neglected for over forty years with a tree growing through what is now the main reception area. Now it is a stunning office in open countryside of which Jenny is justifiably proud.
In the mid 1990’s Jenny Moody Properties Limited evolved into the construction of larger, exclusive homes on small, select developments. The emphasis of these homes is quality, traditional build, utilising blockwork on all first floor walls enabling wet plaster to be applied throughout the property. First floors are finished in tongue and grooved boarding and ground floors now have zoned underfloor heating to bring the homes right up to date.
The aim of the company for the future is to maintain traditional build combined with a high specification which, together with an excellent finish, provides purchasers with not only a wonderful home, but also an investment for the future.
