City & Country reveals first look at The 1840 in South West London
City & Country, the UK’s leading developer of heritage buildings, has revealed the first glimpse at its stunning refurbishment of The 1840, St George’s Gardens – a breath-taking new collection of luxurious 1, 2, and 3 bedroom conversion apartments in the heart of South West London.
Combining period grandeur with modern city living, The 1840 boasts a prime location with the sought after neighbourhoods of Tooting, Earlsfield, Balham and Wandsworth Common all within walking distance.
Formerly Springfield Hospital, City & Country is breathing new life into the majestic Grade II listed building and sensitively restoring and redesigning the surrounding gardens, which will be known as St George’s Gardens.
A distinctive local landmark, this grand three storey building with its gabled roofs, parapets and embattled towers has long been a distinctive local landmark. Victorian in age but with Tudor influences, it stands as a significant and well-preserved example of architecture from this time. Now, more than 175 years after the building was originally opened, City & Country is creating a range of luxurious new apartments perfectly designed for modern 21st Century living.
Externally, the majestic three storey building will be carefully restored bringing back previously lost features and creating an impressive sense of grandeur for residents and visitors.
Blending heritage architecture with contemporary style, The 1840 will offer stylish living spaces alongside beautifully restored, original character features and a superior specification. Each unique apartment has been individually designed by City & Country’s specialist inhouse design team. Luxurious designs and materials have been paired with beautiful colour palettes that are modern but pay homage to the distant past to create chic and elegant interiors fit for its discerning residents.
Homes boast many restored period features, including original windows and high ceilings, with some enjoying outdoor terraces, balconies and roof terraces, giving views across the landscaped gardens to the parkland and beyond.
The development will embrace smart technology, with intercom systems, alarm systems and thermostats that can all be controlled from your mobile phones. High speed internet and wiring within the apartments will make for efficient home working, and the lighting is set up to allow easy upgrade to Philips Hue systems.
Residents will also benefit from an on-site concierge and be able to choose from a range of parking options including secure underground parking, with electric car charging points.
Prices for new homes at The 1840 will start from £375,000. For more information and to register interest ahead of the launch, visit www.cityandcountry.co.uk or call 01279 817 882
