It’s out with the old and in with the new at Lawrie Park Place, the brand new period-style development in Sydenham. Absolutely gets a first look…
The question of whether to purchase a period property to renovate or a new build, low maintenance property to move straight into is a question that many ponder over. Lawrie Park Place offers the best of both worlds, a period style property on the outside that blends in amongst the Victorian landscape of Sydenham and Lawrie Park, whilst designed and equipped to the standard of a high specification property.
A period property, such as the Victorian townhouses that are a common sight in Sydenham, often contain unique characteristics. Having been built and designed by master craftsmen with sensitive care and attention, these period properties have stood the test of time. With their high ceilings, generous gardens and distinct frontages, they offer bright spacious environments full of character. Lawrie Park Place aims to combine these positive elements with modern construction techniques and create homes for today.
When choosing between ‘old’ versus ‘new’ homes, there are significant maintenance and running costs that need to be considered. In new homes, heat retention, generation and distribution are all greatly improved with measures such as low energy hot water storage, air tightness control, enhanced insulation, double glazing and solar panel arrays to name but a few.
All of these techniques are utilised at Lawrie Park Place and the result is a home which provides a more even distribution of heat whilst minimising energy consumption. Purchasing new, you often have the comfort of a 10-year building warranty, energy efficiency and of course the knowledge that your home has had to conform to strict Building Regulations and comply with the Code for Sustainable Homes.
The homes are built using warm yellow Stock bricks, hand laid in the traditional style with gabled roof tops and casement windows. Each property at Lawrie Park Place will feature contemporary interiors, large open plan living spaces, each with a sleek contemporary kitchen by Rational. All of the appliances will be ultra-energy efficient and as the kitchen is neutral each owner can design their interiors in tune with their individual taste.
