King William IV admired the view from the landscaped gardens and the estate was once owned by Sir William Cooper, one of the Chaplains-in-Ordinary to King George III. Today, Fitzroy Gate, the estate previously known as Nazareth House and originally, as The White House, now comprises a collection of converted and newly-built homes set in beautifully landscaped gardens which sweep down to the River Thames.
Beechcroft Developments has completed its award-winning conversion of the Grade II listed mansion and stables and an unusual red-brick chapel, designed by ecclesiastical architects, Pugin & Pugin and built in 1902. The chapel has been carefully converted into four new homes – each offering something special.
Only one chapel property remains available – and this is the final converted property at Fitzroy Gate. This could certainly be a case of leaving the best until last – because this stunning three-bedroom home provides outstanding living space, designed and finished to the highest standards.
Priced at £1.45 million, this three-bedroom home provides over 2,530 square feet of living space arranged over two floors. On the ground floor are three en-suite bedrooms, two with fitted wardrobes and with a dressing area to the master bedroom. The living space, on the upper floor comprises a large drawing/dining room with soaring ceilings, a large dual-aspect kitchen/breakfast room and a separate study. The new home, with a private terrace, is perfect for anyone looking for plenty of living space, an abundance of character and a home that is easily maintained.
The photographs of the development do not do the property justice – and the Beechcroft team is advising that the final property needs to be viewed to be properly appreciated. The fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality.
In the kitchen, stone worktops complement the sleek, smooth bespoke kitchen cabinets set in stone frames and a full range of integrated appliances by Miele include an induction hob, oven, steam combination oven, warming drawer and extractor hood along with a Siemens fridge/freezer and a Quooker boiling tap. The Siemens washing machine and tumble dryer have been installed in the utility area. Bathrooms and en-suites include semi-recessed basins, set within vanity units, double-ended baths with bath panels that complement the vanity units and stone worktops. There’s underfloor heating, porcelain/ceramic floor tiles to bathrooms, en-suites and cloakrooms, wood flooring to the drawing room, kitchen and hall and high-quality carpeting in the bedrooms. The gated, private parking is accessed remotely by means of a key fob and there’s CCTV on the entrance gates.
