The Scheme

Pond House is a four storey detached house with adjacent Coach House on the Lower Clapham Road. It is one of Hackney’s finest late Georgian houses. One Housing Group acquired this historic residence in December 2011.

An important part of Hackney’s historic environment, the renovation to Pond House is sympathetic and retains the 18th century appearance and character, protecting the future of this period building for many years to come.

The refurbishment creates four new private apartments with the adjoining Grade II listed Coach House converted into a family home. A further six family sized homes have been built in the estate grounds.

Silver was appointed as Employer’s Agent and Site Inspector by One Housing from pre-acquisition stage through to completion on site. The scope and nature of the works required extensive liaison and approvals from English Heritage prior to and during the course of the project and we also engaged with local councillors and interest groups.

We have successfully delivered the strategic and quality components of this development, and are extremely privileged to have been involved in the conservation and development of Pond House. Testament to the success of the scheme was given by the local councillor: ‘It was wonderful to see what can be done professionally to restore such a heritage building. OHG have done an excellent job and it's a model for other owners of heritage buildings’
