Arts And Crafts Style For New Surrey Scheme

Posted 11 February 2022 by Keith Osborne

London Square has asked the interior designers to dress its luxurious show home inspired by the heritage architecture...

Surrey’s chic villages and towns are among the most coveted places to live outside prime London and Walton-on-Thames is one of the most desirable – with the River Thames and some top-performing schools attracting people already living locally and also those moving out from London.

WhatHouse? Award-winning developer London Square chose Walton-on-Thames for its new classic Arts and Crafts style neighbourhood, set in over five acres of gardens with mature trees and landscaping in the exclusive Ashley Park area. The collection of distinctive and imposing three- and four-bedroom homes and five-bedroom detached houses, all with private gardens, plus handsome one- and two-bedroom apartments, was launched earlier this year to enormous interest and great success, with more than 60% sold so far.

A beautifully designed four-bedroom show home, ‘The Edwardes’, named after a fashionable square in Kensington, has been unveiled with bespoke interiors and exquisite detailing by leading designer Andrew Henry. Using a palette of soft pastel hues, with tactile textures of velvet and contrasting bold patterns featured in fabric and wallpaper, the house has a fresh, spring vibe to reflect its setting among landscaped gardens, mature trees and shrubs. The furniture is elegant and is a nod to the Arts and Crafts architecture, with generous curved sofas and chairs and monochrome artwork.

The space is cleverly zoned to create three distinct areas, with a Shaker-style kitchen, a relaxing dining area with glass and chrome table and chairs, floor-to-ceiling bifold doors allowing natural light to flood in and a cosy family area with sofa and TV – perfect for downtime.

On the first floor, the principal bedroom suite is a haven of soft colours and fabrics, with the use of black lacquer furniture bringing an Art Deco feel and a separate dressing area and a sleek en suite providing total privacy. Bedroom two, with en suite, is styled for a child, with soft colours, fresh white painted furniture and a desk and chair. On the second floor, for an older sibling, the interiors of bedroom three work well for a teenager, with metal furniture, and a quirky gaming beanbag for when homework is done – or not. Offering a flexible use, bedroom four could be used as a home office and/or a guest bedroom.

London Square Walton On ThamesEvery house reflects the renowned Surrey Arts and Crafts style of architecture, with design flourishes featuring generous bay windows and impressive facades, from a mellow palette of red, grey and yellow brick. Some homes have utility rooms, studies and dressing rooms, with flooring featuring stone and herringbone wood finishes, plus fireplaces in selected homes. Handsome one- and two-bedroom apartments, with attractive tile-hung pitched roofs and Arts and Crafts detail, provide an excellent option for first-time buyers, homemovers and downsizers.

The new neighbourhood is designed to make the most of family living. For working parents, there is an on-site day nursery. Walton Tennis Club is next door, with tennis for all ages and standards. In the local area, there are good shops, a farmers’ market, riverside trails and water sports within walking distance, open spaces, excellent schools, both independent and state, for all ages. Walton-on-Thames train station is a 12-minute walk, with a 26-minute fast commute to London Waterloo.

London Square Walton On ThamesJo McDonagh, sales and marketing director, London Square, said: “Walton-on-Thames is a very attractive place to live and our new neighbourhood is proving to be hugely popular. Buyers have loved the quality of the architecture and design, the leafy setting and its location close to shops, the Thames, the station and schools. The interest has been phenomenal and we are now more than 60% sold to a mix of local buyers and also people moving from London – young professionals, families and those looking to downsize.

“Our first show home is stunning and we look forward to welcoming potential buyers to be inspired by Andrew Henry’s outstanding interiors.”

Prices start from £345,000 for the apartments and from £1.05million for three-, four- and five-bedroom homes. You can reserve and choose from London Square’s specially selected specification choices. Find out more about London Square Walton On Thames.
