Hilary House is a large detached Listed Victorian building that had seen many occupants over its lifetime, from use by the East Surrey Water Company (who’s ‘ESWC’ mosaic initials grace the entrance porch) to a Maternity Hospital and more recently to provide bedsit accommodation for a ‘Half-Way House’. Latterly the building had become derelict.
Niblock were tasked with sympathetically converting the building into three x 3no. bedroom houses, retaining the many Listed features.
Our works included:
- Partial demolition
- Foundation investigation
- Internal remodelling
- External Wall Insulation
- Replacement staircases
- Replacement ‘Heritage’ sliding sash windows.
- Retained internal heritage features included moulding cornices and mosaic floor panels
- Refurbished ‘Queen Victoria’ feature to front elevation
