The property is one of four houses created from a Victorian building, known collectively as St John"s Orchard. It combines a historic fabric with exciting and unashamedly modern interiors. The design is a reinvention of the traditional home, comprising a series of highly dynamic living spaces programmed for a variety of family uses. The project is currently on-site, with completion scheduled for autumn 2012.
Accommodation is set over four floors, and includes five bedrooms. At the front of the property is a garden and an off-street parking space. To the rear is a landscaped garden measuring more than 50m in length. There are far-reaching panoramic views from the upper rooms of the house, as well as from the fantastic roof terrace at the top.
The architects have designed a bespoke timber staircase that winds its way through the house, and the specification throughout is of a very high standard. This is a family home of grand proportions and rare quality, perfectly suited to 21st-century living.

The Old St John"s Convent and Orchard at 17 Grove Park has been given a fresh lease of life through combining the rich history of the original Victorian building with new contemporary spaces and modern standards.
