Mel Hopper founded Ambergris having honed her skills and gained invaluable experience in the central London property market over 15 years on both the marketing and development side.

Her interest in property and design was developed at a young age, heavily influenced by her family's construction and luxury bespoke kitchen and furniture company.  Having observed beautiful pieces coming to life from the drawing board to fruition in the factory she developed a keen eye for detail and a genuine passion and appreciation for the handcrafted and intelligent design, which is prevalent in everything she does and evident in all her projects.

Mel comes from a corporate property background and has worked with some of the largest property developers and investors in Europe, managing their PR & Marketing campaigns and launching some of the most prestigious commercial and residential developments in the UK.

She does not adhere to any individual style, preferring instead to listen to the clients' needs and develop a scheme that encompasses their vision and lifestyle.
