Proposed new home will feature basement spa, gym and games room
Architect plans for new luxury home in Wimbledon Village
July 17, 2023
Plans have been made to demolish a four-bedroom Wimbledon Village house which was built in the 1970s to replace it with a luxury home including a basement spa and gym.
The proposed scheme would see a new five-bedroom home being built in Lancaster Gardens, with the new basement level including a games room, bar, media room, craft room, gym and spa.
There will be an internal lift to navigate between the three storeys and there will be 16 solar panels on the roof as well as zinc-clad dormer windows.
Merton Council is now seeking comments on the proposals, and you can make your views known before July 26 by searching for application 23/P1561 on the council's planning explorer.
Agent Matthew White, from MATT Architecture Limited, said: "The proposed scheme takes inspiration from typical residential buildings around Wimbledon Village and further afield."
He says it will feature decorative panels taking inspiration featuring from the wheatsheaf in the Wimbledon Common coat of arms. The three existing car parking spaces will be retained.
If Merton council gives the go-ahead to the scheme it is anticipated that building work will start in December and take a year to complete.
