Visiting Frith Park this week, it’s incredible to contemplate that the façade of The Mansion House, deeper at the base but decreasing to just two bricks wide at the top, is being supported by this incredible brace of scaffolding. It’s such a striking sight that is reminiscent of a film set.
The front elevation of this Grade II locally listed Italianate Georgian building is being restored and will eventually form the impressive frontage for the 11 luxury apartments contained within. The setting and views across the ancient parkland, which is protected to the South West, will also be extensively improved with the planting of additional trees.
Few companies would go to the expense or take on the complications of such an onerous task but Urban Green Developments and Reside Developments have taken up the mantle. With sensitive refurbishment at the very heart of this operation, both companies are committed to seeing this façade, currently fragile and in a perilous state of repair, restored to its former glory.
Demolition of the rest of the site is almost complete to prepare for the start of the construction phase of the development.
Situated within an area of outstanding beauty and close to the picturesque Surrey village of Walton-on-the-Hill, Frith Park will comprise 26 new build houses and 11 apartments in a listed, period Mansion House where the Georgian façade will be retained. All homes are nestled within a restored and enhanced historic woodland setting characterised by a long, winding entrance road reminiscent of a country estate.
