Historic Georgian lodge transformed into luxury homes
Homebuyers have the chance to own a piece of West Derby’s heritage, with period features aplenty, inside three newly refurbished homes.
As part of our Regency Manor development off Mill Lane, Redrow Homes has transformed a Grade II listed building, Fremont House, into a pair of three-bedroom houses and a two-bedroom duplex apartment.
The historic lodge house, in the grounds of the former Holly Lodge Girls' College, has been returned to its former glory with smart painted brickwork and a pillared entrance porch. Inside, period features are plentiful including bay windows and detailed architraves. However, the old has been blended seamlessly with the new. Homes boast a range of modern conveniences including brand new shaker-style kitchens, flooring throughout and elegant contemporary bathroom suites.
Catherine Lacey, senior residential sales and lettings valuer at Sutton Kersh, who are marketing the properties on behalf of Redrow Homes, said: “Fremont House offers the opportunity to purchase a piece of West Derby’s history. Redrow Homes have carried out an amazing refurbishment programme, breathing new life into the historic mansion house.
“Stepping over the threshold plate, you are transported into another world of exquisite period features, blending seamlessly with modern conveniences. The high ceilings, splendid staircase and mosaic entrance vestibule in The Hayworth are among the many features that have been retained.
“Redrow Homes are renowned for quality, that goes without saying, but with Fremont House I feel they have gone one step further, meeting the conservation requirements too.”
The properties are available to move into now, and we’re offering to cover stamp duty for buyers who reserve before the end of November.
The Mellor, priced at £375,000 is a spacious three-bedroom duplex with a private entrance taking you into an open-plan kitchen and dining area.. The separate lounge has a deep bay window with views over the gardens. On the first floor, there are three generous bedrooms, including a master with bay window and en-suite, and a family bathroom.
The Heyworth, priced at £400,000 has an impressive L-shaped entrance hall, dual aspect lounge, and open plan kitchen/dining room. There is also outdoor access through a second hallway. All three bedrooms are doubles, two of which boast en-suites.
The final property, The Sandfield, is a two-bedroom apartment, with a private entrance and two floors of living space, priced at £190,000. It includes a large hallway with a downstairs cloakroom. The open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge is triple aspect while upstairs there are two bedrooms and a family bathroom.
“The properties are unique”, added Catherine. “I have been selling property in West Derby Village for over 30 years, and Fremont House is a hidden gem. Offering spacious, secluded accommodation and an enviable lifestyle. The wider development was in high demand and, although part of the development, Fremont House enjoys a private entrance set behind gates, and two of the properties come with double garages.”
Regency Manor has outstanding schools, a country park and cycleways close by as well as local convenience stores and choice of supermarkets on Queens Drive.
