London Property South brings you a new homes update revealing the latest developments across South London.
Caley House, the former home and private gallery of late art critic and author Brian Sewell, known as one of Britain’s most famous and controversial art critics, is being transformed into nine contemporary homes by award-winning property developer West Eleven.
The development is on Leopold Road in Wimbledon Village and buyers can now reserve a home. The show home was unveiled in late November.
Caley House is a boutique development, containing four mews houses and five apartments, conveniently nestled between Wimbledon Park and the Wimbledon village centre. The building is surrounded by beautiful gardens and woodland, where Sewell once let his beloved dogs roam free, and will be transformed into stunning communal outdoor space for residents.
The gardens also include a lily pond that Monet would have been proud of. Many original features of the house have been conserved, including the original stained glass, ceilings and fireplaces.
The development is within walking distance of Wimbledon Park Tennis Courts and the Wimbledon centre, where there are many independent shops and highly rated primary and secondary schools. Wimbledon Park station is a ten-minute walk from the development while Wimbledon station is a 20-minute walk, both providing direct links into central London and beyond.
Will Herrmann, of West Eleven, says: “Caley House is a remarkable building, that we’re honoured to be developing further. We spotted the potential to renovate the space into multiple homes, whilst conserving the original features. The beautiful gardens surrounding the site will make stunning communal space for residents and we’ll be working again with Jo Cowen Architects to ensure the homes will be to a high standard for comfortable and modern living.”
West Eleven prides itself on forming new communities and creating developments that are sympathetic to local architecture and built to a high standard. A recent project by the developers is multi award-winning Bakery Place, on the Clapham/Battersea border.
West Eleven has also begun work on the 15-storey, The View, in Battersea Park, which will deliver more new properties of 39 apartments and 16,000 square feet of office space.
