Following the exceptional appetite for refurbished apartments at Noble Park, award-winning developer, Crest Nicholson, has released its final phase of historic homes at its exclusive Epsom development. Seven apartments sold over the launch weekend alone, with potential purchasers queuing around the block, and reminding house buyers that competition is fierce and opportunities to secure such a unique home are limited.

The final building to enjoy renovation and restoration at the former West Park Hospital site is Ashford House – a striking red brick Grade 2 listed building, which exists as part of a series of disused and derelict former hospital sites known as the ‘Epsom Cluster’. Beautifully appointed in a peaceful enclave and nestled in the open countryside, Noble Park also benefits from its close proximity to Epsom, providing both a rural and commutable location.

Offering just 32 one and two bedroom apartments, Ashford House represents an exclusive proposition for buyers who yearn for the character of a period property, yet expect all the convenience of a newly built home.

 It only takes a brief glance at the exterior of the refurbished apartments to understand why there are so few properties remaining to buy. Externally, Ashford House is characterised by traditional red brickwork, grey slate roof tiles, stone lintels and cills, tall chimneys and classic Edwardian elevations, offering unparalleled period features.

Internally, each apartment boasts a sympathetically arranged layout, with adaptable open plan living / dining rooms that are spacious enough to accommodate the varying demands of residents. The sofas can be arranged in a cosy formation for relaxing evenings, whilst the additional living space can be used to house a dining table, ensuring that hosts are equipped to execute intimate suppers or lavish dinner parties.

Additionally, many apartments feature full-height sash windows, and each living area benefits from a set of double doors that opens either onto a terrace or a balcony, which ensures that the area is flooded with natural light, enhancing the feel of extensive space still further.

Furthermore, with kitchen areas extending off from the living space, hosts can showcase their culinary skills whilst simultaneously remaining attentive to their guests. Fitted with luxury granite work surfaces and integrated Bosch appliances, the kitchens provide the optimum environment in which to cook up a storm in stylish surroundings.

The bedrooms are both spacious and light, offering space in which to position wardrobes, while the luxury bathrooms benefit from high end Villeroy and Boch suites that are elegantly finished with a Roman glass bath screen, Hansgrohe mixer taps and shower fittings, and a chrome towel rail. The two bedroom apartments also feature a master suite that comes equipped with an en suite bathroom.

Christine Tiernan, Sales & Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson South, comments: “Ashford House represents the final opportunity for prospective purchasers to secure one of the much-coveted apartments at Noble Park. Furthermore, with Crest Nicholson’s long and successful history of renovating and restoring neglected historic buildings to their former glory, it’s no wonder that the refurbished apartments have proved so popular.

“Additionally, in showing sensitivity to the beauty and heritage of bygone buildings, we are effectively preserving slices of history for future generations, and are delighted that our approach to the renovations has resonated with local residents, who have snapped up the refurbished apartments in droves.”

When complete, Noble Park will comprise a selection of 360 homes that will accommodate a range of buyers including first time buyers, growing families and busy working professionals, as well as those seeking a more relaxed pace of life. The homes will include exclusive two, three, four and five-bedroom family homes and one and two-bedroom apartments.

Noble Park is located in close proximity to beautiful rural surrounds across and around Epsom. The site is a short distance from Epsom Common and Horton Country Park, while the Epsom Downs and its iconic race course are also nearby. For commuters, Ewell West station and Epsom Station are within a short distance of the development, with train journeys into London taking approximately 35 minutes. Road links are also established, with the M25 and A3 both in easy reach too.

One bedroom apartments at Ashford House are available from £239,950. For more information or to book an appointment to view the show apartment, please call 0870 751 3958 or email Alternatively, visit
