When asked to work on this exciting development, we, at House of Design, instantly understood why our widely travelled client had fallen in love with the undeniable elegance of the once Sacred Heart convent.

Originally known as Hill House and built in the 1790s, it has now been converted into 9 properties and sensitively renovated throughout.

Steeped in history, with its striking original features, the Grade II-listed building boasts superb classical proportions.

By pulling together unique pieces, beautiful sumptuous fabrics, bespoke upholstery and lighting, with rich colours and layers, our aim was to capture and celebrate the historic character and grandeur of this landmark building.

On entering the property through it's imposing front door, you are captured by the historic character of the ornate fireplace in the lobby and the impressive grand entrance hall, paved with black and white marble, and lined with carved oak panelling.

From this rises a carved-oak sweeping staircase, overlooked by the original stained-glass windows that were made by the workshops of William Morris. These are stunningly lit by the mighty crystal chandelier, that is clearly visible from it's frontage.

The sitting/dining room draws on a classic opulent style, to give the space warmth, splendour and a refined elegance. The floor to ceiling antique mirrored walls, opulent navy velvet upholstery and majestic gold lights all add strength in their scale.

The master bedroom was designed to have a truly sumptuous feel. With smoked glass either side of the imposing padded headboard, the specially crafted crystal chandeliers hang elegantly over the reverse antique mirrored chests. The rich bronzes and deep warm tones create a glorious opulence.

In complete contrast, the second bedroom has been given a truly heavenly feel. Combining tones of white and ivory with stunning textures and layers gives dimension and a luxurious grace. The angelic vintage mural in the ensuite adds that atmospheric, ethereal touch.
