Coombe Lane was bought with planning in place for the existing building to be demolished and rebuilt as six large family homes arranged as three pairs of semi-detached houses.
Nestled between the Cottenham Park allotments and the large rear gardens of the houses on Coombe Lane, the site is located in a quiet, secluded enclave of West Wimbledon. The location straddles Central London and the Home Counties. Raynes Park National Rail Station with its frequent services into Waterloo is just a short walk away, whilst the other end of Coombe Lane offers quick access into Surrey and the countryside beyond via the A3. Local amenities can be found in Raynes Park, Wimbledon Village, and Wimbledon Town Centre. The area is popular with families on account of it housing some of the top state and independent schools in London.
Designed by Martin Evans Architects, the scheme has a modern aesthetic whilst remaining sympathetic to its leafy surroundings through the use of timber cladding on the upper parts of the houses. Landscaped gardens and mature trees such as the imposing weeping willow seamlessly connect the estate with its leafy surroundings. Formål has collaborated with interior design studio Scenesmith to create three unique pairs of houses that perfectly complement the architectural style of the homes.
The homes will be launched off plan in Spring 2024.
