Sarah Beeny2014

Sarah Beeny – An influential and entertaining property developer, broadcaster and author

Honorary Degree of Doctor of Design (HonDDes) in recognition of her significant contribution to raising the profile and accessibility of property management and development and related issues to the wider general public.

Through television, books and by personal example, Sarah Beeny has opened up the world of property improvement to the wider public.

Her work raises awareness of style and quality across materials, techniques and craftsmanship. She gives people fresh insight into making themselves an attractive, comfortable and well-functioning home – or perfecting an asset to sell on to someone else. Since becoming well-known via Channel 4’s Property Ladder, Sarah has made several other programmes about different types of property, including her own restoration of Rise Hall, and many aspects of development.

She has been a guest curator for an exhibition on the Home by the Royal Institute of British Architects, and has developed her own websites Tepilo, an online estate agency, and Mysinglefriend, a personal introduction service.
