Fitzroy Gate is surely the most fascinating of Beechcrofts developments and the launch of a new-build show home in the impressive Isabella House will provide potential home buyers with an opportunity to appreciate this private, gated and beautifully landscaped riverside setting, the homes on offer and, indeed, a sense of history.
In the 1740s, the estate on this site came into the ownership of wealthy diamond merchant, Aaron Franks, and remained in the family until 1832, when it was inherited by Lady Isabella Cooper (nee Franks) and her husband, Sir William Cooper. In 1833, Sir William Cooper rebuilt the house in sumptuous style with the help of architect, Edward Blore and even rerouted . the Richmond Road to create views of the river from the house.
Today, Beechcroft is converting the original White House along with the original courtyard buildings and a chapel, dating from the 1900s into a stunning collection of apartments and houses. A new building, Isabella House, comprising just nine two-bedroom apartments, has been designed to complement the period buildings. In total, Beechcroft will be creating 23 converted and new homes at Fitzroy Gate. Beechcroft is working with St James at Fitzroy Gate and St James is creating a collection of new four and five bedroom townhouses within the landscaped grounds.
Beechcrofts new show home, to be opened to the public on Saturday March 5th between 10 am and 4 pm, is a ground floor apartment with its own private entrance, open plan living space, two bedrooms, one with an en-suite and a private terrace.
