Anlaby Lodge was a beautiful Victorian Manor House but in a very poor state of repair, located in Teddington with a half-acre garden.
The building was owned by a property development company, who were hoping to demolish and build fourteen terraced houses in its place. Fortunately, the garden contained a beautiful 400-year-old horse chestnut tree and planning was refused.
We purchased the property from the developers on an auctioneer’s contract and spent ten months completely renovating.
Firstly, underpinning the whole building replacing all windows, stone cills, bressummer beams, entrance porch and roof.
The interior had major dampness and wet rot, all was removed and made good, the whole interior was replastered, and mouldings were taken from all cornices and roses and replaced to match.
An additional two-car garage was added to the left side of the property, brick garden walls were added to all sides of the property and the garden was redesigned.
The outcome was stunning and was purchased by a business barrister, who still happily lives there with his family.
