Awarding-winning restoration specialist, Comer Homes, has released for sale 26 stunning homes, including 11 houses, set within one of Britain’s most striking Victorian Gothic building complexes; Grade II listed Royal Connaught Park, in Bushey, Hertfordshire.

These much anticipated homes have been created by Comer Homes’ expert team of craftsmen who have converted four former school buildings into homes with indisputable wow factor. The houses especially have already attracted unprecedented interest from potential purchasers, offering as they do an extremely rare opportunity to own a truly one-off home which seamlessly blends a unique mix of beautiful traditional features with the very highest quality luxury contemporary interior finishes, fixtures and fittings.

Caroline Comer, Sales and Marketing Director, Comer Homes, comments: “Royal Connaught Park is a landmark development which has been lauded for its elegant period features and grand, yet somehow still intimate, architectural design. Demand is such that our team has long been inundated with enquiries as to when these particular properties would become available to buy and we are absolutely delighted to finally unveil these exceptional homes. We have already had extremely strong demand for the homes, especially the houses, which is testament to the fact that they are so unique; there really is nothing quite like them on the market, nor is there likely to be for the foreseeable future.

“The outstanding quality of these homes is the result of the efforts of a highly talented team of skilled craftsmen. Throughout the design and conversion process we have taken great pains to ensure we retain and enhance the building’s unique charms and features whilst providing purchasers with properties that not only provide the very highest quality living spaces but also layouts that are practical for daily life. No two homes are alike; each is rich in traditional features skilfully interwoven with contemporary design and all the latest mod cons.”

Marlborough House, formerly the school’s sanatorium, has been converted into five two and three-bedroom homes; King Edward House, formerly the maids’ quarters and kitchens, is now home to 14 homes; Kent House, formerly the school laundry, houses four three and four-bedroom homes and Derby House, formerly the infirmary, has been transformed into three three-bedroom homes. Each home is flooded with an abundance of natural light thanks to large, original ornate windows and internal configurations that embrace the existing features, whilst providing open plan living spaces with the exceptional level of finish that purchasers at Royal Connaught Park demand.

Original features include stunning vaulted ceilings, ornate stone windows and original wooden beams and cornicing. These are complemented by contemporary kitchens featuring fully-fitted top-of-the-range Poggenpohl* kitchens with integrated Miele* appliances, granite or stone worktops and, to selected properties, a Champagne cooler. Bathrooms include luxury sanitary ware and contemporary porcelain or limestone tiled walls, giving the feeling of a luxury boutique hotel bathroom in your own home. Many homes have a private garden or other outdoor space and every property also features underfloor heating, video entry phone system and designated car parking. There is also ample visitor parking for those who love to entertain.

Caroline continues: “Our in-house interior designer, Rebecca Lloyd, has worked with local suppliers to create and source furniture and furnishings that are fitting for such a grand setting. These homes demand interiors that are of the very highest quality and often times we have to commission furniture that is bespoke to the individual show homes – it really is a case of no expense spared. As a result it is not uncommon for a purchaser to view a property at Royal Connaught Park and to purchase it exactly as seen – even down to the cutlery and cushions.
