Weston Homes Transform Former Hospital Into High Quality Houses And Apartments At The Gables In Peterborough

Weston Homes is proud to launch The Gables, a collection of one and two bedroom apartments and three, four and five bedroom houses situated on the former Peterborough District Hospital site on Thorpe Road.

Launching on 24th June, the 63 new homes will include a mixture of new build and newly renovated properties, completed to Weston Homes high quality specification. Split into two zones, Zone C comprises of just five, four and five bedroom new build houses and a locally listed building which has been refurbished to offer just two semi-detached houses.

Zone F comprises of 47 generously size new homes which range from 1,193 sq. ft. to 2,400 sq. ft. and provide three, four and five bedrooms across two or three storeys. Each property benefits from allocated parking, driveway or garage and spacious gardens.

Zone F will also feature a fully restored and converted Grade II Listed building, into just nine, one and two bedroom apartments, including one duplex. The two storey building will feature spacious modern homes which range from from 535 sq. ft. to 1,508 sq. ft.

Dating back to 1895 and designed by John Alfred Gotch, the building was designed to a Tudor / Jacobean style and was originally the home of a wealthy coal merchant named John Henry Beeby. Beeby died in 1924 and his widow continued to live in the house until 1933 when it was sold to George Ralph Baker, a Director in an engineering firm. The building then became a maternity hospital in 1947 until 1970, when it became a Psychiatric day centre.

Bob Weston, CEO of Weston Homes commented: “The Gables blends sensitive restoration with modern living and high quality new houses, in this desirable Cathedral City. We have created a range of apartment and house types which will appeal to an array of purchasers from first time buyers to large families. We are proud to be part of the transformation of a disused former district hospital into high quality new homes.

“We expect that local interest will be high as there is a huge demand for new housing in the area. Our careful design and planning means that there is a home to suit a range of buyers from first time buyers, to couples and young families to upsizers.”

Each new home at The Gables will be complete with Weston Homes signature high specification interiors, featuring designer Oakwood kitchens with integrated Zanussi appliances, a choice of quartz stone worktops and the Weston Homes signature Fascino instant boiling water tap. Each property will be finished with oak or walnut engineered wood flooring in the living area and hallway, and carpeting to the bedrooms, many of the master bedrooms also include fitted wardrobes or walk in wardrobes.

The bathrooms include digitally controlled Fascino Smart Taps, and Fascino Smart Showers and Smart Baths. The innovative technology, which is exclusive to Weston Homes, helps to reduce water bills and is digitally controlled, providing precise temperature and water flow. The toilet has been designed to reduce bacteria and water usage and features an ergonomic seat fitted with soft close as standard.

The Gables is perfectly positioned to the city centre which is bustling with entertainment, shopping and restaurants and healthy pursuits such as gyms, golf and country walking. Local parks and schooling make The Gables stand out as a prestigious development to enjoy now and for years to come.

The Gables is excellently connected. Peterborough train station on the East Coast Line is a 0.7 mile walk away, with trains reaching Kings Cross in under an hour. The A1 provides links north towards Leeds and Newcastle and south towards London.

Prices start from £292,995 for a three bedroom house; £362,995 for a four bedroom house and £519,995 for a five bedroom house. The apartments are set to be released in late 2016.
