Banstead Place sees the remodelling, refurbishment, and restoration of a mid-18th Century Grade II* listed manor house in South London, to create 30 new homes for Stonegate Homes.
Our proposal includes a series of new-build homes within the grounds, each designed to sensitively respond to the original house, the local conservation area and the Green Belt. The Garden Walk houses include a colonnade walkway framing the ground’s main central garden and a historic sundial. Nestled next to the existing walled garden, a further ensemble of new buildings are more varied in form, materiality and detailing, referencing the neighbouring farmsteads.
“I just want to endorse this application, and I think it is absolutely delightful. In my time of being a councillor and sitting on this committee, I haven’t seen another application which I so wholeheartedly endorsed as this one – I think it is sympathetic to the local area. I think it is a testament to the design of it that the local resident’s association haven’t felt the need to come along here tonight to speak against it.”
