Brooks House is the high specification conversion of the former Victorian house Oadby Hill into 11 apartments set in generous and picturesque grounds.
Constructed in the mid 19th Century for WE Hutchinson, a former director of The Midland Railway, the building had been used as a company’s offices for around 30 years.
The site was acquired in 2013 and all the apartments were sold and occupied by spring 2016. Sales values exceeded £250 per square foot; a new benchmark for apartment living in Oadby.
The original substantial family home displayed the finest Victorian architecture with large bay windows, a pillared entrance and stone parapets.
The aim was to restore and enhance. The stonework and sash windows were repaired, re-fitted and refurbished to frame the external fabric for the high specification interiors.
Internally, the renovation of the communal entrance, staircase and inner corridors as well as retention of the stained glass window, cornice, flooring and architrave ensured the building’s historic quality was highlighted.
The apartments are genuinely individual, using the building’s challenging spaces and rear floor levels to create spacious and innovative living areas, with exclusive gardens for six of the units. There are also communal outside seating and dining space.
