FINALISTS ANNOUNCED Quin & Co are developing seven sumptuous townhouses in the grounds of Suffolk House, which is within the Conway Road Conservation Area. Suffolk House itself is a locally listed villa built in 1865 by Benjamin daughter and son-in-law, Elizabeth and and extended to form 10, one- and two-bedroom apartments.
The seven townhouses, however, all four- and five-bedroom, are collectively named Suffolk Mews and will be luxe to the core – think Crittall-style windows and doors, landscaped gardens, balconies, handleless kitchen designs, integrated wine fridges, rainfall showerheads and off-road parking. The project will be completed in Autumn 2021 with pre-registration for early marketing now being accepted. The houses start at £600,000 and are 1,464 square foot plus external space.
“Being a local development firm, we were excited about this development as soon as we heard Cardiff Council were disposing of it and jumped at the opportunity to acquire it,” says John Pinn, director of Quin & Co. “We love bringing old buildings back to life to ensure they continue to flourish for many years to come.
“The villa at Suffolk House gave us the perfect opportunity to produce the 10 apartments along with the construction of the really high-quality townhouses; which have been designed to fit into the conservation area with the Portland stone, red brickwork and gabled features.
“With Suffolk House being in a Thompson’s Park and Pontcanna fields, the design of the extension to the restored villa and the townhouses was a key driver to the development which we have tied in with the rebuilding of the listed original stone wall along Romilly Road and the comprehensive tree-planting scheme across the site to ensure they can be enjoyed for many generations to come.” For more: www.QuinCo.co.uk The finalists at the second Cardiff Property Awards have now been announced – and anticipation is building with places on offer at the prestigious symposium event celebrating the best of Cardiff’s property sector.
