House Belsize ParkProject Description
Development and refurbishment of a large Victorian four stories house with an exceptional garden, within the Belsize Park conservation area. The developers brief called for the building to be divided into two 2-bedroom apartments in the upper parts of the building, and a duplex unit benefiting from the full use of the mature 150 ft. garden and off-street parking. Planning for a generous side extension on the garden level was also secured to garner additional square footage, thereby substantially increasing the value of the House. Given the value of land, this is a prerequisite when developing a London property. Despite the substantial reconfiguration required, some of it structural, all efforts were made to preserve the period patina where appropriate, whilst at the same introducing 21st C technology, as well as the quality required in a high-end product, all within a strictly set budget.
