• extract from classical order - the organisation

classical order,  uk & international, 2009 – present

Following the hiatus in Spain, a new operation was established – Classical Order – to be owned by the sustainability foundation, Natural Order, to pursue a similar development philosophy in the UK as well as, ultimately, in other territories including, potentially, Spain.

The organisation’s activities were focussed initially on three areas:  the acquisition of classical building in Wiltshire, on behalf of Natural Order for conversion to an Institute for Sustainability, the purchase of another listed building in Berkshire for residential conversion, and land assembly for a possible eco-town in the South East.  Although all three represented extraordinarily attractive propositions with, in retrospect, a sevenfold multiple in value now established for the third in less than two years, continuing uncertainties in the capital markets prohibited funding.
