This unique landmark restoration project is currently under construction by local family owned builders, Ankers and Rawlings, which has now been sympathetically restored to an exacting standard and specification throughout, offering character and charm in abundance. The Abbey House was originally built in the early 19th century with the Monastic buildings dating back to the 1840?s. The twin chapels were then designed by Charles Hansom in 1847 with building completed in 1851.
It was founded by a small group of nuns led by Madame Augustine de Chabannes, and became home to The Cross Abbey Order of Cistercian Trappist nuns from 1802 to 1990. The conversion of the listed buildings have involved many hours of painstaking work to retain the original artefacts? and period features of this historical site, to further enhance the beauty and interest of what is a true part of local history. Set in extensive grounds, incorporating beautifully maintained landscaped ornamental gardens, feature lake and fountain, the communal grounds are a haven for residents to enjoy an idyllic lifestyle setting. The external brickwork has predominantly been completed using the original reclaimed bricks, which have been laid in a traditional lime mortar method. In addition, many of the original roof tiles were stripped, cleaned and restored across the development.
Within the development, original quarry flag stones and terracotta tiles are incorporated to form the external areas and patios, truly emphasising the character of the entire development. An original Pugin Stone Cross, some of the historical plaques, and many of the church pews have been retained and will be situated in the communal areas and grounds. Thoughtfully designed with a focus on providing a unique mix of properties within an exclusive setting, meticulous planning has gone into providing a real haven for purchasers to live in. Meandering pathways, delightful forest walks, picnic areas and acres of land to live the good life, Stapehill Abbey has it all. Most of the homes will feature a fireplace and have log burners fitted, cast iron radiators will be used in many of the homes, with underfloor heating to the ground floors.
The development will be accessed via a gated security entrance with audio entry phone.
