Leading retirement developer, Beechcroft is returning to Cobham to create a new over 55s development on the site of the former White Lion on Portsmouth Road.
“We are delighted to be returning to Cobham and to be restoring and converting the original, historic buildings at White Lion Place and to be building a selection of new, complementary, properties“ comments Angela South, Sales and Marketing Director for Beechcroft.
White Lion Place will ultimately comprise 30 newly-built and converted properties. The historic Grade II listed White Lion will ultimately comprise just six converted properties including 2 two-bedroom houses, 2 two-bedroom ground floor apartments, one three-bedroom duplex apartment and one four-bedroom duplex apartment. Original features will be retained where possible and the building restored to a high standard.
The 24 new-build homes will be created in three buildings and will include 11 two-bedroom apartments, 9 three-bedroom apartments, 2 three-bedroom duplex apartments, one four-bedroom duplex apartment and one three-bedroom house.
Each unique new home has been designed to provide plenty of generously-proportioned living space and will feature the high quality fixtures and fittings which are a hallmark of all Beechcroft properties. The majority of homes will have outside space in the form of private balconies, terraces or roof terraces and some will have Juliette balconies.
“We have carried out extensive research into what local people are looking for in a retirement property and our results reveal that space is extremely important – and that high quality three and four-bedroom apartments are in short supply,” adds Angela South. “The homes at White Lion Place will be stylish, energy-efficient, easy to maintain and designed to reflect the grandeur of the listed building and the historical relevance of this site.”
For peace of mind, an estate manager will be on hand to handle the day-to-day administration of the development and the maintenance of communal areas – and will keep a watchful eye on properties whilst owners are away.
The sales launch of White Lion Place is scheduled for September 2016. To register for further information, please call 01491 825522. Details on all Beechcroft developments are available on the website at www.beechcroft.co.uk.
