Abbey Gardens St John's Wood

MWA have recently completed designs for a planning submission at this St John’s Wood property. The site is located within a residential part of the St John's Wood Conservation Area which was originally envisaged as an 'Arcadian' Garden Suburb.

The Grade II listed property is noted in the Conservation Area Audit as a building of special architectural and historic interest which forms part of an excellent mid-Victorian terrace (circa 1950). The property is characterised by its dominant front elevation which remains largely original and features stucco brick, stucco dressings, balanced composition and ionic porches.

Proposals to refurbish the period property include the replacement of an existing rear extension with a modern glazed addition, re-planning of the existing rear garden to introduce an external terrace and tiered planters along with extensive remodelling internally to refurbish the property.

The new glass extension aims to increase the amount of natural light enjoyed at the lower ground floor level whilst formed of a lightweight and minimal structure that will not impact on the property's historic fabric.

Works will commence on site in Q2 2021.
