Pure Block Management appointed to manage historic property in Hull’s Old Town

Hull-based property specialist Pure Block Management has been appointed to manage a residential development in the city’s Old Town with historic links to the fishing industry.

Samman House on Bowlalley Lane was built in the late 1800s as the office of the Deddington Steamship Company, owned by Henry Samman.

Originally known as Deddington Chambers, the building was gifted in 1919 to the Hull Chamber of Commerce and Shipping.

In 2013 it was converted to eight apartments by M2 Property Development, which has chosen Pure Block Management to ensure the smooth running of the development, from day-to-day property maintenance and repairs to financial and legal management.

Pure Block Management director Liam Parker said: “We’re delighted to add such a distinctive property to the growing list of developments we manage.

“Whether a block has eight apartments or 80, leaseholders and residents expect the highest standards of accommodation and at Pure Block Management we pride ourselves on providing a responsive service so that communal areas and facilities are well-maintained at all times and potential issues are dealt with promptly.

“As well as many of the newer residential developments across the region, we also manage a number of listed and historic properties like Samman House, which require specialist knowledge and skills when it comes to maintenance and repairs.”

Megan Hetherington, director at M2 Property Development, said: “The team at Pure Block Management took over management of another development we had involvement in and were very professional in their approach.

“They have made great improvements to that development and its finances, so when we needed a specialist to manage Samman House we knew where to turn.”

The apartment complex includes an impressive stained-glass window, which was part of a magnificent council chamber Henry Samman erected at the rear of the building upon gifting it to the Chamber of Commerce.

The apartments themselves are all named after vessels once owned by Henry Samman, including Bonnie Kate, Knight Templar and Elf.

Pure Block Management is part of Yorkshire-based property firm Garness Group.
