56 Hyde Avenue Road was originally comprised a two-storey end of terrace period property which was occupied by the Women’s Institute and laid out as open plan and cellular offices on the ground and first floor, with ancillary space in the roof. The building had been extended to the rear and included a tile box bay to the side elevation and an external staircase to the rear.

Robert Weston saw the opportunity to convert this historic, well-located commercial building into three premium residential homes with outside leisure space, and two sought-after inner city parking bays per unit.

The approach

Planning permission was sought for change of use from commercial offices to residential homes, and for external alterations including the re-cladding of the old extension.

Designed in sympathy with the character of the Winchester Conservation Area, the Ivanhoe Terrace development was conceived as a striking, yet sensitive, interplay between traditional style and modern form and functionality.

The three-storey, red brick Victorian building was transformed into attractive, individually designed houses, boasting premium German-designed kitchens and modern bathrooms. Close to the city centre these three highly functional homes, were designed to be practical and low maintenance, appealing to both investors and downsizers.


“The proposed modifications should improve the building.”
