The team at Beechcroft Developments is celebrating the success of Fitzroy Gate in Old Isleworth, selected as the Best Conversion* in this year’s London Evening Standards Homes & Property Awards.
At Fitzroy Gate, Beechcroft has converted a Grade II listed mansion house on a seven-acre riverside estate into six grand apartments. The stables have been converted into four mews houses and a further four unique houses have been created within a listed red-brick chapel dating from 1902. Nine newly-built two-bedroom apartments complement the style of the original manor house which was ‘sumptuously refurbished’ by royal chaplain, Sir William Cooper, in 1832. The fully-maintained communal gardens have been beautifully-landscaped and the private parkland runs down to the banks of the River Thames.
The award judge, who visited Fitzroy Gate, commented that this development ‘feels like a sanctuary’ and was particularly impressed by the chapel homes, one of which has an original choir gallery, now a mezzanine bedroom, with arched stone window surrounds and stained glass. He also commented that the new-build additions have been thoughtfully combined with the meticulous restoration.
Fitzroy Gate has attracted plenty of attention from home-buyers looking for something special – and with stunning converted homes, many with river views, fixtures and fittings of the highest standards and three acres of landscaped grounds, Fitzroy Gate is an exceptional development. With over 90% of the development now sold, Beechcroft is registering interest in the final sales launch at Fitzroy Gate.
