Amazing Spaces Investments Company Profile

Our Story

Founded by Julia Finnis-Bedford in 2000, Amazing Spaces has grown from strength to strength over the past 20 years - always following one key mission: to offer the best service in the fastest time and fulfil any client brief.

At the time, there was no such thing as a location agency, and production companies did not have the resources to source - nevertheless manage - locations for their shoots.

And so, Amazing Spaces was born.

We have since grown to include short-term luxurious accomodation (Villas), venue hire for events (Venues) and most recently, luxurious, bespoke property sales (Lifestyle Investments).

Amazing Spaces
Lifestyle Investments

Amazing Spaces Lifestyle Investments was borne from the need for our clients looking for a bespoke service offering that fulfils lifestyle needs and income opportunities in residential property. We understand not only what creates a unique space, but also how our high net-worth clientele approach property ownership.

Over 20 years we have built up a large clientele looking for a unique offering to lifestyle solutions – we offer beach houses, villas in the winelands, luxury architectural homes with sea views, or country homes.

We are proud of the relationships we have built over time that not only give us access to buyers, but also the amazing spaces that we represent that may be looking for a targeted marketing service for their property. Julia Finnis-Bedford together with fellow Director Andrew Dewey, who comes from a commercial property background, share a passion for amazing spaces and a distinct professionalism of service that sets them apart from the norm.

"We believe that this is a niche offering for the discerning buyer or seller, looking for something special that reflects the unique qualities of their home."
