Mount Anvil's sensitive re-purposing of historic buildings

Developer Mount Anvil has been talking about the level of care that it takes in the re-building of historic homes.

Planning Director, Andrew Reid, presented one of the developer's latest projects - Hampstead Manor - in the debate around preserving and re-purposing heritage at our Future Cities Forum in June.

Kidderpore Hall featured above is one of the 13 distinct buildings in the development in Kidderpore Avenue, Hampstead. The white stuccoed mansion with Greek-revival features was built in 1843 by the ambitious East India leather trader John Teil. In 1890, the site was transformed into Westfield College for women to study botany.

Located near Hampstead Village, 156 homes have now been created in one of the UK's most desirable postcodes, 98 as new builds and 54 conversions, ranging from studio apartments to five-bedroom houses. The development features a 24-hour concierge service, spa, private gym and swimming pool.
