WHITE LION PLACE, COB­HAM £665,000 to £795,000

Lo­cated on Portsmouth Road, in the heart of Cob­ham, White Lion Place is an ex­clu­sive col­lec­tion of 30 newly-built and con­verted houses, apart­ments and du­plexes, de­signed with re­tire­ment in mind.

As the for­mer White Lion Ho­tel, the build­ing was the first stop on the stage­coach route from Lon­don to Portsmouth and, while the el­e­va­tions are mainly 18th cen­tury, parts of this his­toric build­ing date back to the 16th cen­tury.

Beechcroft’s care­ful restora­tion has re­sulted in six con­verted prop­er­ties in­clud­ing a two-bed­room house, a three-bed­room house, two ground floor apart­ments, one with two bed­rooms and the other with three bed­rooms, a three-bed­room du­plex and a four-bed­room du­plex, each with a pri­vate ter­race or bal­cony.

Three new build­ings have also been cre­ated in­clud­ing Bar­ley House, Mackay House and The Malt­house. In to­tal, the gated de­vel­op­ment, com­prises 30 two, three and four-bed­room apart­ments and du­plexes along with two and three-bed­room houses, all de­signed for the over 55s. Each new home, new or con­verted, pro­vides gen­er­ous­lypro­por­tioned liv­ing space, high-qual­ity fix­tures and fit­tings in­clud­ing be­spoke kitchens with a range of in­te­grated ap­pli­ances along with al­lo­cated un­der­ground park­ing.

There’s also an on-site es­tate man­age­ment ser­vice to en­sure a more re­laxed lifestyle for own­ers – and peace of mind for those own­ers who like to ‘lock up and leave’.

Just two of the con­verted prop­er­ties re­main for sale: Num­ber 26, a two-bed­room house with a study and pri­vate ter­race priced at £750,000 and num­ber 28, a two-bed­room ground floor apart­ment with study area and pri­vate ter­race priced at £795,000. A small se­lec­tion of newly-built homes is also now avail­able, with prices from £665,000.
