The site formed part of a property purchased by the St Rose of Lima Association in 1960 who subsequently built accommodation for the nuns and the locally popular and well-run St Rose Infant School next door.
Messenger was awarded the contract for the conversion of a Grade II Listed Georgian farmhouse, located next door to St Mary’s Place. The property houses five bedrooms, a large south facing garden, a walled and gated front driveway courtyard and large double garage.
The contract also provided for the adjacent grounds to be redeveloped, providing two new courtyards with 20 residential dwellings in an open landscaped setting for active retired persons over 55 years old. A garage and parking for each house was set in discrete mews courts separate from the houses.
A communal room and separate office was also built on the site, providing a meeting room for residents and an office for the part time site manager.
