Time & Tide Homes has transformed a former
convent on the edge of the Epping Forest into a prestigious £7.2m
The Victorian mansion at Theydon Towers is being converted into 4 exclusive self-contained apartments and a stable/office block situated in the grounds is set to become a three-bedroom house. A four-bedroom eco-home built with sustainable materials and incorporating a green roof and renewable energy devices is also planned for the site.
The Theydon Bois area in which the development is located provides a luxurious backdrop to the lives of its rich and famous inhabitants – a fact reflected in the development’s premium specification.
Whilst the developers have made the most of the mansion’s traditional Victorian exterior and secluded position, great care has been taken to create interiors that reflect the sophistication and style-consciousness of its target market. High ceilings and large windows capture the flavour its original period, whilst the interior has uncompromising modernity stamped throughout it with brands such as Poggenpohl, Grohe and Cohler.
Each apartment property has been designed in response to the particular configuration of the existing space. Using individual features such as double terraces, spacious balconies and even a spectacular roof garden that offers tree top views over the surrounding countryside, each unit has its own distinct character.
Although Time & Tide is primarily associated with large urban regeneration projects, the Theydon Towers development is a reflection of the Group’s increasing diversity. “This is a very interesting project to be involved in,” said Neil Stephen, Area Sales Manager at Time & Tide. “As a Group renowned for larger, mixed-use urban developments, Theydon Towers has given us the opportunity to apply our progressive approach and attention to detail in a totally different market. With an influx of early interest and one reservation already confirmed, I’m confident we’ve hit the right mark.”
The Theydon Towers apartments are scheduled for completion in January 2008 and are currently on the market at between £950,000 and £1.5m. The entire development will completed by October 2008.
