Gabriella Park Gardens is a large private development comprising a number of separate buildings, including the Grade II* listed White House.
Under Phase One of the two-phase project, the White House was converted into residential accommodation.
Phase One of the Gabriella Park Gardens project saw the construction of forty-five apartments, along with a linked extension of an additional twelve single and duplex units. A separate four-unit apartment and two small detached houses will also be constructed on the site. The second phase includes the construction of twenty-six one and two-bedroom houses.
In order to respect the historical significance of the Grade II* listed building, all of the external features have been maintained and the stone and brickwork have been painstakingly restored. Although new windows have been fitted and some sections of the roof replaced, the alterations have all been made in accordance with the original style of the building and conservation rules.
Careful consideration has also been taken to preserve the natural environment and wildlife that currently populates the site. A large number of trees have been preserved and Eramo Developments Limited have collaborated with Natural England to maintain the existing habitat for a number of endangered animals.
Examples this on the site are a badger sett and a loft inhabited by bats which have not been disturbed.
Barton Mews has been elegantly designed to reflect Wimbledon’s prominent Victorian architectural vernacular, with fine detailing
including stone features and mellow brickwork.
Promising contemporary living in a convenient location within easy reach of the town centre's diverse amenities, transport links and open spaces, Barton Mews comprises seven beautifully designed 3 and 4 bedroom homes, perfectly planned to suit contemporary living.
With flexible accommodation over three floors, the homes at Barton Mews are adaptable to accommodate a wide range of lifestyles. Kitchens are comprehensively appointed with a range of integrated appliances and master bedrooms enjoy the advantage of en suite shower rooms.
Consent was obtained by the practice from the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames for the adaptation
and extension of this Grade II* former hospital and home of Dr John Langdon-Down,
Victorian pioneer in the treatment of what later became known as Down's Syndrome.
The recently completed Phase 1 of the project involved the formation of 89 high quality apartments and restoration of some fine interiors within what was originally the house of Langdon-Down and his family, which he gradually extended into a range of buildings, each slightly varying in style.
The rather crude modifications carried out after the hospital was taken over by the NHS in the early 1950’s were removed as part of the proposals and the form and massing restored to largely to the original.
The work included considerable research and submissions of sample brickwork, stonework, and ironwork, and details in respect of exterior and interior finishes to discharge numerous planning conditions. Both wet and dry rot were discovered in the timberwork and in the masonry fabric and this led to a constant dialogue with Council Officers over the two-year period of the restoration work on site. The building had originally been placed on the EH 'At Risk' register.
