Leading retirement developer, Beechcroft, is preparing to launch the six converted properties in a historic, Grade II listed building in the heart of Cobham, Surrey.
This building, the former White Lion, was the first stop on the stagecoach route from London to Portsmouth and, whilst the elevations are mainly 18th century, parts of this historic building date back to the 16th century. In 1662, the White Lion is mentioned in documents when landlord, William Kidwell, was granted permission to keep ‘a common victualling house for the space of one whole year.”
Beechcroft’s careful restoration and conversion has resulted in six new properties including a two-bedroom house, a three-bedroom house, two ground floor apartments, one with two bedrooms and the other with three bedrooms, a three-bedroom duplex and a four-bedroom duplex, each with a private terrace or balcony.
Three new buildings have also been created at White Lion Place – including Barley House, Mackay House and The Malthouse. In total, this exclusive, gated development, comprises 30 two, three and four-bedroom apartments and duplexes along with two and three-bedroom houses, all designed for the over 55s. In addition to the converted apartments, Beechcroft is planning to release a selection of newly-built apartments in The Malthouse.
Each new home, new or converted, provides generously-proportioned living space, high quality fixtures and fittings including bespoke kitchens with a range of integrated appliances along with allocated underground parking. There’s also an on-site estate management service to ensure a more relaxed lifestyle for owners – and peace of mind for those owners who like to ‘lock up and leave.’
The launch event is scheduled to take place on Saturday 12th May from 11 am to 3 pm, with champagne and canapes being served. To secure an invitation to the launch, please contact the Beechcroft team on 01932-588963.
