Over the course of time, Centurion has built up an expansive portfolio, predominantly within the city of Brighton & Hove, and continues to develop and invest in various property assets comprising commercial, residential and mixed use tenures. The Group is also engaged in delivering strategic advice and acquiring assets throughout London and the South East for and on behalf of a niche client base.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_blockquote cite=”” type=”left” class=”white-text” style=”margin-top: 10px;”]”All that we are is the result of what we have thought”[/x_blockquote][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text class=”white-text”]The unitary authority of Brighton & Hove was formed in 1997, signalling the start of a positive forward motion for the new city, which has come to be referred to by many as ‘London by the sea’. Brighton & Hove’s housing market has continuously received an above average level of demand within the United Kingdom in recent years, with house prices remaining high and ‘Buy to Let’ landlords reaping rewards from the a dense student population, generated from the Universities of Brighton and Sussex.

Naturally of course, with low supply, comes high demand; and with a carefully formed team of niche, high profile clients and professional specialists, Centurion Group is committed to working closely with the local authority and associated government bodies, to further enhance the areas of Brighton & Hove that require regeneration, in order to meet demand and to provide continued economic growth in the City and its functioning economic area.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section bg_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 50px 0px 100px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text class=”cs-ta-center header white-text” style=”margin-bottom: 20px;”]The Team[/cs_text][x_line class=”break-line top-line” style=”border-top-width: 1px;”][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 50px auto 0px;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/2″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_image type=”circle” src=”http://centuriongroupuk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Charles-Face.jpg” alt=”” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=”” class=”about-face-image”][cs_text class=”cs-ta-center white-text” style=”line-height: 25px;margin-top: 15px;”]Charles Draycott

Charles’ family have been involved in property for over 60 years and originally began investing in property and land on the South Bank of London, where a number of high rise office buildings were constructed and still remain (Camelford House, Tintagel House). It was from this point that the family purchased the renowned Hanningtons Department Store, which was perceived by many to be the ‘Harrods of Brighton’. The family owned Hanningtons Department Store for 27 years and in light of the sale of the property in 2002, Charles sold the recently renovated Woodmancote Place and emigrated to Canada to successfully develop and operate holiday homes in North America (namely in Canada and Hawaii, USA), in addition to investing in assets within the Canadian property market. Charles returned to the UK in June 2011 to now concentrate on further expanding and supporting the group’s UK operations.

Outside of the office, Charles spends a great deal of time with his family and is a keen reader of spiritual and quantum physics books and regularly practices meditation. He has had many years of association with registered chambers that specialise in the enhancement of consciousness through the transcendental meditation techniques. He is also a fond collector of antiques and enjoys travelling.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][/cs_content]
