Lyford Road

A bespoke new build ‘forever’ home
This project is creating a new 8,500ft², three-storey detached house in Wandsworth Common, including accommodation at basement and roof level. Planning could not be secured to extend the existing property located on this site, so this new build solution allowed our client to create their ‘forever’ home exactly as they wanted.

The new home has been designed in an arts and crafts style, in keeping with neighbouring properties, and incorporates traditional brick detailing with lime mortar pointing, and bronze crittall windows. Architectural features include two large chimney stacks and a large first floor window, which will include arched brickwork above.

The contiguous piled basement is currently being formed and will benefit from a triple tanking system. The brick and block masonry structure will be constructed over a concrete ground floor slab, together with a timber roof structure over a steel portal frame.

The new home includes five bedrooms arranged over the first and second floor, with a roof terrace at first floor level, accessed from the master suite. The basement will incorporate a cinema, and a staff annex with a separate access from street level.
