Award-winning Beechcroft is offering home buyers over the age of 55 the opportunity to secure a home on a private estate, dating from 1730 and once owned by an Admiral who fought in the French Revolutionary Wars and the wife of the 5th Duke of Wellington. Two new show homes reveal the style and high-quality fixtures and fittings, new owners can expect.
Orford Place, which fronts Ham Common, comprises 23 elegant, new and beautifully-converted houses and apartments, set in three acres of mature, walled gardens. The gated development is accessed via a key fob and there is private parking.
The former St Michael’s Convent and its outbuildings have been converted into seven two and three-bedroom apartments and two three-storey houses. A further 14 brand new houses and apartments have been designed to complement the original buildings. All the homes feature outside space in the form of a terrace, balcony, roof terrace or private garden. The fully-maintained communal walled gardens feature sweeping lawns, formal and informal planting, a kitchen garden, fruit bushes and mature trees, including an ancient Mulberry.
Six new homes were reserved at the recent launch and, currently, Beechcroft is offering a selection of new homes including a two-bedroom apartment with a roof terrace at £995,000, a converted two-bedroom apartment with terrace at £845,000, a new two-bedroom house with sun room, balcony, terrace ad garden at £1,075,000 and two three-bedroom houses, each with a terrace, priced from £1,325,000.
The development provides an on-site estate management service. The Estate Manager organises the gardening of both private and communal grounds and the cleaning and maintenance of communal areas – and is on hand to keep an eye on properties whilst owners are away.
