Beechcroft’s conversion of the former White Lion in the heart of Cobham, along with the construction of three, stylish, complementary new buildings, has created a superb, gated collection of 30 elegant new houses, apartments and duplexes within walking distance of the town centre’s shops, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants.
The conversion of the original Grade II listed building has resulted in six characterful houses and apartments with a further 24 new houses, apartments and duplexes in Barley House, Mackay House and The Malthouse.
The new two, three and four-bedroom homes offer plenty of generously-proportioned living space with gardens, terraces or balconies providing welcome outside space. The ‘jewel in the crown’ at White Lion Place, however, is number 4, Barley House with a stunning roof terrace – which comes as a surprise to prospective purchasers who visit the development.
Priced at £1,050,000, number 4 is a four-bedroom duplex apartment on the first and second floors of Barley House. This carefully-crafted duplex apartment has a large dining/hall, a drawing room with Juliet balcony, a bespoke kitchen by Manor Cabinets fitted with a full range of integrated appliances, a utility area, separate shower room and a fourth bedroom/study on the first floor. Three en-suite bedrooms are located on the second floor, including a master bedroom with a dressing area and a guest bedroom with a Juliet balcony. The L-shaped roof terrace provides attractive seating areas with spectacular views over Cobham and the Surrey countryside beyond.
The other new homes at White Lion Place start from £685,000 for a three-bedroom, first-floor apartment with balcony. Each home has been designed according to Beechcroft’s principle of creating elegant houses and apartments for the over 55s that offer plenty of living space but fewer bedrooms than one would expect in a mainstream property of a similar size.
The new homes at White Lion Place are energy-efficient and easy to maintain and an estate manager is on hand to handle the day-to-day management of the development. For further information on the properties available or to arrange an appointment to view the show homes, please contact the Beechcroft sales office, open Tuesday to Saturday inclusive, 10 am to 5 pm, on 01932 588963. Details of all Beechcroft developments are available on the website at www.beechcroft.co.uk
