The restoration of this beautiful Grade II listed property has been a labour of love. My vision was to restore it to its former glory; remain faithful to its Classical, Arts and rafts and Scottish Baronial architecture and retain the ornate, period details that make the property so unique; but at the same time create a home that offers the ultimate in luxury living.

http://search.knightfrank.co.uk/ham080041

I commissioned a team of 120 builders and master craftsmen to bring this property back to life, ensuring the work remained sympathetic to the existing architecture whilst updating and modernising the interior.

The work included extending the rear of the building to increase the living space from 19,000 sq ft to 27,000 sq ft and installing a state-of-the-art home automation system throughout.

The result is Heath Hall, a residence like no other in London. Steeped in history and located in a street renowned for its high profile, it offers an exceptional and unrivalled place to live.

  • 1. he restoration of this beautiful Grade II listed property has been a labour of love. My vision was to restore it to its former glory; remain faithful to its Classical, Arts and Crafts and Scottish Baronial architecture and retain the ornate, period details that make the property so unique; but at the same time create a home that offers the ultimate in luxury living. I commissioned a team of 120 builders and master craftsmen to bring this property back to life, ensuring the work remained sympathetic to the existing architecture whilst updating and modernising the interior. The work included extending the rear of the building to increase the living space from 19,000 sq ft to 27,000 sq ft and installing a state-of-the-art home automation system throughout. The result is Heath Hall, a residence like no other in London. Steeped in history and located in a street renowned for its high profile, it offers an exceptional and unrivalled place to live. 1 200 LIMITED EDITION HEATH HALL 1

  • 3. A TASTE OF THE PAST Heath Hall formerly called East Weald was built in 1910 as the London residence for William Park Lyle of the Tate & Lyle family. It was designed and built by architects Henry Victor Ashley and F. Winton Newman (who later made their name as competition winners for monumental public buildings such as the The Grand (Masonic) Lodge of England) and the designs drew on a combination of Classical, Scottish Baronial and Arts and Crafts styles. The plans were so impressive they were shown at the 1910 and 1911 Royal Academy exhibitions. The Edwardians were known for their affluent tastes and display of wealth and East Weald embodied this with its 19,000sq ft of space set behind an impressive ornate red brick, symmetrical frontage with Baroque-style wrought iron gates and a Romanesque-inspired arched entrance. Located in The Bishops Avenue, East Weald was a fine example of the grand British domestic architecture that sadly came to an abrupt end with the outbreak of World War One. It wasn’t until the 1920s that large-scale mansions were once again built in this street but none that could rival the majestic appearance and attention to detail of East Weald. East Weald was not to remain in the Tate & Lyle family. It was later used as a home for the blind and then in the 1950s it was purchased by the Bank of China to house employees working in England and it continued in this function for the next couple of decades before becoming disused and falling into disrepair. In 2001, East Weald was granted Grade II listing by English Heritage but by this stage the property had sadly fallen into near ruin, with the brickwork left to crumble plasterwork damaged and fireplaces and tiles shattered. In 2006 Andreas Panayiotou purchased East Weald, changing the property’s name to Heath Hall and embarking on a journey to restore the property to its former beauty. 4 HEATH HALL HEATH HALL O3 HEATH HALL 5
  • 4. ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS East Weald is considered an excellent example of both Classical and Arts and Crafts styles although neither is used in its purest form. The Classical influences are more notable in the interior with its focus on symmetry and elaborate cornices whereas the exterior displays more references to the Arts and Crafts form with carved stone embellishments and well-proportioned lines. East Weald also displays some elements and forms of the Scottish Baronial style, another architectural characteristic that was popular during the Edwardian period. The uneven roof line, and individual roofs over large bays are all indicative of this influence. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the architecture and design, which makes East Weald stand out from the other properties in The Bishops Avenue is the recurring visual devices inherent within the design. The Arts and Crafts influence is shown in the abundance of decorative adornments depicting an array of flora and fauna native to the British Isles including holly, mistletoe, oak, rose, wheat, rabbits, squirrels and so on, examples of which are found on the stone work, lead panelling and rainwater hoppers on the exterior. They are also found, to a lesser extent, inside on plasterwork on ceilings and on relief panels above fireplaces. 6 HEATH HALL HEATH HALL O3 HEATH HALL 7
  • 5. THE DIAMOND MOTIF A diamond motif is another key recurring theme in East Weald’s architecture. The geometric pattern appears regularly, on brickwork on chimney stacks, on decorative brick and tile panels, on brick parapets and cornices and on the oak balustrade. The pattern is such an integral architectural theme that the restoration process ensured particular development and continuation of this design. 8 HEATH HALL Heath Hall is a fine example of Edwardian architecture drawing on the Classical, Arts and Crafts and Scottish Baronial styles. It includes many ornate features such as decorative stone carvings and cut and projecting brickwork. HEATH HALL O3 HEATH HALL 9

  • 8. THE ENTRANCE HALL The original decorative plasterwork and oak floorboards in the entrance hall have been carefully restored. The restored oak staircase in the entrance hall branches out to a double staircase at half landing level, strategically positioned LED lights allows the staircase to be lit up at night. 14 HEATH HALL HEATH HALL 15
  • 9. THE LIVING AREAS There are six main living areas within Heath Hall, all offering exceptional space, high ceilings and lots of natural light. Luxurious white-gold paint has been used to highlight features on the fireplaces. The diamond pattern is a key feature in the interior and is used extensively on wooden panelling and on the plasterwork above fireplaces. 16 HEATH HALL HEATH HALL 17
  • 10. THE LIBRARY The library has wall-to-wall custom built bookcases in European oak and finished in burr oak veneer. The library opens onto the veranda with its commanding view across the landscaped grounds. The architects were keen to continue and develop the diamond pattern that is so prevalent in the architecture and ensured that this device was repeated in many of the new commissions. 18 HEATH HALL HEATH HALL 19
  • 11. 20 HEATH HALL HEATH HALL 21
  • 12. DINING ROOM AND KITCHEN Many of the period features in the grand dining room have been restored from the herringbone oak parquet flooring to the decorative plasterwork and mahogany fireplace. The contemporary kitchen features Luna Pearl worktops, a polished Applestone flooring and top of the range appliances and fixtures. 22 HEATH HALL HEATH HALL 23
  • 13. THE STAIRCASE New stairs leading from the first floor to the second have been built in European oak. The existing timber floor has been restored and extended along the corridor. The rear of the property has been extended to create an impressive 27,000sq ft of living space. 24 HEATH HALL HEATH HALL 25
  • 14. THE BEDROOMS Heath Hall boasts 14 bedrooms, all with either an en suite bathroom or adjoining bathroom.

  • 15. 28 HEATH HALL HEATH HALL 29
  • 16. THE BATHROOMS The symmetry of the building is a key feature of the Classical style and has been reflected in much of the interior design. The bathrooms all differ in design and are built from a variety of polished marbles. The focal point of the main bathroom is the large oval bath made from a single piece of magenta veined marble. 30 HEATH HALL HEATH HALL 31

  • 19. THE LEISURE COMPLEX The leisure complex is located on the ground floor, it includes a gym, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and an impressive white stone swimming pool. There is also a swimming pool in the gardens made from black stone. 36 HEATH HALL HEATH HALL 37

  • 21. THE GROUNDS The 2.5 acres of grounds have been carefully restored to reflect the property’s Edwardian heritage. The gardens promise to be one of the largest in north London.
