Wellington Row, Wimbledon

From £1,150,000

Comprising one, two, three and four¬bedroom apartments, as well as a collection of stunning duplexes and a triplex apartment; the latter the spectacular conversion of the old chapel, Wellington Row is the prestigious centrepiece at Berkeley Homes’ Wimbledon Hill Park development.

Adjoining 19 acres of protected mature parkland and just minutes from Wimbledon Village, Wellington Row also benefits from a selection of exclusive amenities for residents to enhance their lifestyle including a gym, boardroom, private cinema room and a concierge service.

An interesting history

The former Atkinson Morley Hospital is one of Wimbledon’s most renowned buildings, set in the grounds of what was once the ancestral home of the 2nd Duke of Wellington.

A convalescent home during the Second World War, this local landmark was recognised as one of the most advanced brain surgery centres in the world and was the regional neuroscience centre for south¬west London and a large part of Surrey and Sussex. The world’s first ever computed tomography (CT) scan was performed here on October 1, 1971. Eight years later, Sir Godfrey Hounsfield, who developed the groundbreaking technology with James Ambrose, was awarded a Nobel Prize in Medicine.

A sensitive restoration

Perfectly proportioned, the conversion of this Victorian mansion is being carefully crafted to retain features of the original façade; many of the period details inside and out are being thoughtfully restored and preserved, and in the chapel these include stained glass windows, traditional wood panelling and Stucco pillars.

Framing an Italian¬style landscaped courtyard, some of the light¬filled ground floor apartments benefit from large terraces, while the spacious triplex apartment features a tall, square bay window, which overlooks the stunning formal gardens.

Coffered ceilings and feature lighting will create an elegant ambience in the main living areas, while many apartments enjoy floor¬to¬ceiling windows and views of the adjoining parkland.

The kitchens offer contemporary lines and contrasting materials, while the Miele and Siemens appliances are of the highest standard. In addition, each apartment has an underground allocated parking space.

In the spacious double bedrooms there will be fitted wardrobes and ample storage. Bathrooms and shower rooms will feature modern and elegantly¬designed baths with exceptional chrome fittings and Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware.

Beyond the gated garden courtyard is an enviable 19 acres of protected woodland and fields for residents to enjoy. 
