Historic estate fronting Ham Common
Introducing Orford Place, an exclusive collection of 23 elegant, new and beautifully-converted houses and apartments, set in three acres of mature, walled gardens. Enjoying a superb location fronting Ham Common, Orford Place offers a unique opportunity to secure a home with heritage, designed exclusively for the over 55s. Built in 1730, Orford House has been home to many notable residents including Francis Love Beckford, Sir Weldon-Dalrymple Champneys and Vice Admiral Sir John Sutton, Captain of the HMS Egmont during the French Revolutionary Wars.
In 1945, the house was owned for a year by Lilian Maud Glen, wife of the 5th Duke of Wellington, before it became a school and, latterly, St Michael’s Convent. Beechcroft’s careful restoration and conversion has transformed the house and its outbuildings into nine homes including seven, luxurious, two and three-bedroom apartments and two spacious three-storey houses. Beechcroft has also created 14 brand new houses and apartments, designed to complement the original buildings. All the homes feature outside space – either a terrace, balcony, roof terrace or private garden. The fully-maintained communal walled gardens feature sweeping lawns, informal and formal planting, a kitchen garden, fruit trees and mature trees, including a 300-year old Mulberry

“People were really surprised when we told them we were moving to London. They couldn’t believe why we’d leave the Isle of Arran– but Ham Common, with its ponds is a wonderful place. The grounds at Orford Place are equally beautiful with flowerbeds and an orchard – and this has been so important for our well-being. There are lovely walks on Ham Common; really it’s been a lifesaver. We would like to thank Beechcroft for developing this special site for us all to enjoy.”
