Weston Homes launch new collection of houses for sale & dressed show house at Gun Hill Park in Hampshire

Weston Homes has launched The Cambridge Collection, a new collection of 39 two, three and four bedroom houses, most with private gardens, at the £60 million (GDV) Gun Hill Park in Aldershot. This is the latest transformation at the Grade II listed Cambridge Military Hospital, originally built in 1875-79, into a new residential address providing 140 new homes within 12 acres of landscaped grounds.Arranged over two or three floors and up to 2,762 sqft in size, the houses within The Cambridge Collection have been meticulously converted from the elegant Italianate neoclassical Victorian buildings at Gun Hill Park which were based on the design principles of bright and airy living spaces championed by Florence Nightingale who believed light and fresh air were key to good health.

The grand Victorian architecture provides the houses with generously sized rooms and high ceilings, up to 15.5 ft, complete with tall elegant hand-crafted windows which are timber, double-glazed reproductions of the originals. The living spaces combine distinguished historic character with modern interior finishes and the premium Weston Homes specification, providing houses that are a unique blend of old and new.All the houses have kitchens fitted with designer Oakwood units, integrated appliances and quartz stone worktops with a breakfast area, spacious living and dining rooms, bedrooms with a choice of luxurious carpet, fitted wardrobes or dressing room and luxurious bathrooms and en-suites. Most of the houses have a private garden and many also benefit from a dedicated study / home office area.

For prospective buyers interested in the houses, Weston Homes have created the exceptional ‘Nightingale House’ a 1,982 sq ft (184sq m) three bedroom show home with tall elegant windows, ceilings that average 15 ft (4.5m) throughout and a spectacular staircase hall with a Georgian tread cantilevered staircase with a 28 ft (8.5m) high ceiling. The show home opens onto a private patio and landscaped rear garden‘Nightingale House’ has been designed and dressed to inspire savvy house buyers who appreciate quality, timeless design and provide them with a masterclass on how beautiful yet affordable interiors can be created by mixing luxurious and accessibly priced fabrics and wallcoverings, all sourced from GP&J Baker at the Chelsea Design Centre, London.

The show home includes a curated mixture of original artworks, ceramics and pre-loved items from eBay, new furniture from high street retailers such as Zara Home and John Lewis and individually commissioned pieces, with all upholstery in fabrics from GP&J Baker.The vision of Weston Homes, under the leadership of its Chairman and Managing Director Bob Weston, was not only to deliver much-needed high quality new homes to Aldershot, which is only 33 miles from London, but to restore the Victorian hospital’s remarkable past and create Gun Hill Park, a new residential address which retains the remarkable period features and characterful details of the heritage site, built 142 years ago and opened in 1879 to resemble a grand stately home.

Before launching the current collection of houses, Weston Homes initially launched the apartments and penthouses at Gun Hill Park and the development has been a significant commercial success, with now over 50% of the homes sold.

The new development is just a stone’s throw from Aldershot town centre and surrounded by rural beauty. Homebuyers at Gun Hill Park can escape into Wellesley Woodlands where there are around 250 acres of canal-side walks, wildlife reserves, lakes and open spaces.

Suzanne Aplin, Group Sales & Marketing Director at Weston Homes, says: “The launch of the houses at Gun Hill Park has been highly anticipated. As the ‘Nightingale House’ show home demonstrates the houses provide an abundance of living space, perfect for a family, or a couple who want space to entertain and relax. The houses set a new standard of quality in the local housing market at competitive prices.”

The houses are priced from £499,995. ‘Nightingale House’ is priced at £685,000 (fully furnished) and apartments within the original buildings are priced from £285,000.
