Forrest has completed a £2.5 million private rented residential conversion project, Fonthill Mews, in Finsbury Park for LPC Living.
Work on the firm’s first residential scheme in the capital, included the conversion of an existing commercial building to provide 22 residential properties within a mews setting. The development also included the addition of single storey contemporary extensions, complete with roof top terraces to 11 properties.
Set in a historic mews, its original purpose was to provide stable/coach house accommodation for the main houses on Fonthill Road. Today the private gated mews has painstakingly been converted and given a new lease of life by residential developer LPC Living on behalf of Pervaiz Naviede Family Trust.
It is the second scheme Forrest has delivered for LPC Living – the contractor recently completed the development of 99 new homes at Hulton Square, Ordsall.
Neil Ashworth, head of new build housing, at Forrest, said: “The completion of this project is another significant milestone for the business as our entrance into the private residential market in central London.
As the demand for city centre living in key locations such as Manchester and London continues to rise we’ll continue to build on this success developing similar schemes across the country where we already have a strong presence.”
Simon Ashdown, Director at LPC Living commented “We wanted to create a development that is unique and sought inspiration from the mews’ original Victorian heritage, but with a modern twist, inspired by New York loft interiors. The result is fantastic, providing a modern, but very tranquil haven in the heart of London – quite unique in today’s bustling City.”
