Shothanger Development Project – Felden Hemel Hempstead

Shothanger was a six-bedroom detached property with spacious grounds, located on a private road in the semi-rural hamlet of Felden, Hemel Hempstead.

What we built

Hollywell acquired the property and its associated land for a development project. We managed to get planning permission to convert the existing property into three apartments, and to build two additional houses on the same plot of land. We designed the development project so that each of the three apartments has two bedrooms and the houses each have four. 

Originally the oldest house on the road, it was important to the local people that Shothanger should retain its original period appearance, and stay in keeping with the area. We were committed to achieving this with an updated modern twist.

With this 15-month development project now coming to an end, the three flats have now been completed, and two of the three planned houses, Kingfisher Lodge and Chestnut Lodge, have been built. Construction of the third house commenced in June 2022.

The designs

Each new house and apartment is fully equipped with a well-appointed modern kitchen and bathroom, spacious lounge and bedrooms, and an abundance of natural light. The apartments come with their own private patio, cordoned off by modern hedging and all tenants benefit from a beautiful shared garden with plenty of green space. The landscaping for both the apartments and houses was a focal point from the design stage, and the immaculate finish has received high praise. We included trees from the original gardens and worked our design around them to keep as much nature as possible. There are also a number of beautiful flowers and plants creating a beautiful area to enjoy.

We have endeavoured to create the new properties in a style sensitive to the surrounding area, and we have been delighted to receive compliments from the neighbours on the look and feel of the development so far. Each of the apartments and houses are now occupied, and we are looking forward to commencing work on the third house imminently, which will also be the largest yet.
