Nicholson & Co

Nicholson & Co is owned and run by the Nicholson family – a local family with a combined passion for new development and old architecture.

Based in Harrogate, our business grew from the need for local development which not only reflected the local area but which sought to innovate and improve both commercial and private properties without altering the aesthetic of the surrounding landscape.

By acquiring old residential properties, offices, retail spaces, and holiday lets, we work with businesses and tenants to breathe life back into tired buildings and to deliver luxury spaces which compliment the area and are fit for purpose.

Who We Are

Nicholson & Co was born from a love of the local area, combined with a passion for modern and innovative luxury. We believe that traditional architecture and modern luxury are not mutually exclusive, and that the two can work together in harmony.

Grant Nicholson

A former professional cricketer, Grant is now a multi award winning entrepreneur, recognised by the Institute of Directors as Young Director of the year in 2020 and featured by St James’ Place as one of the leading entrepreneurs of the century as part of their 300 Years of Iconic Leaders.

Owner of multiple businesses and a serial investor, Grant has a passion for property and is invested in ensuring that the environments created by Nicholson & Co create a positive lasting legacy.

Andy Nicholson

Andy’s career has taken him from the football pitch to board member of British Telecom to multi-sector business investor – with cross-sector business interests and experience running a £1.7bn business with a global footprint in 170 countries around the world.

Now intent on building a lasting legacy for the Nicholson family name, Nicholson & Co combines all of Andy’s experiences, driving forward the importance of development which defies the boundaries set by trend and utilising his understanding of economics in the business world.

What we Do

Our team undertake and deliver development projects as part of our own growing portfolio as well as for clients, working across Harrogate and beyond to connect world-class luxury with varied and diverse spaces.

We acquire unused buildings and commercial spaces as well as private properties, undertaking high-end refurbishment and renovation work on behalf of our clients and as part of our own portfolio. Working on the basis of quality rather than quantity, every project we undertake is individual and unique, exploring different concepts and definitions of luxury within the confines of the client brief or the use of each space.

Whether retained as part of our own portfolio, sold, or handed back to the client, we believe that every project and development that we work on offers a new opportunity to push the boundaries of modern luxury and unite tradition with innovation in increasingly ground-breaking ways.
