“Woodside Square is an excellent example of contemporary contextural architecture, aiming for a very thoughtful balance between responding to its sensitive historic context and providing homes for the 21st century lifestyle.”
Pollard Thomas Edwards
Woodside Square architect
The heritage buildings consist of three existing restored and converted buildings fronting Woodside Avenue. They set the tone for the development, provide continuity with its past and in addition they’re going to provide some wonderfully unique apartments. Avebury Mansions is a grade 2 listed building that takes centre stage with Roseneath Mansions to the left and Norton Lees Mansions to the right. Throughout the three buildings, 13 apartments are heritage homes and 10 will be newly built. Each apartment has been thoughtfully and individually designed, with attention to detail being taken the architecture throughout, offering spacious living.
Roseneath’s seven comfortable apartments retain the Victorian building’s original charm, and this former suburban villa remains a Local Listed Building of Merit, as it has done since 1976.
As befits a listed building, Avebury Mansions features a perfectly balanced classical design which boasts impressive attention to detail. Every aspect of the external design has been sympathetically restored by professional craftsmen, while the interior’s impressive rooms have also been preserved as much as possible.
Norton Lees Mansions
The largest and grandest of the Woodside Avenue villas, Norton Lees Mansions was originally constructed by John Grover of Islington in 1875. The villa’s eclectic and asymmetrical design is a striking contrast to the more balanced, unassuming styles of Roseneath Mansions and Avebury Mansions, but bold Renaissance architectural details have provided talking points for decades.
