29 & 31 Crescent Grove

Historical area of SW4, now a thriving high end residential Crescent

EK RCA was instructed to conduct a full elemental reinstatement cost assessment to this handsome  property in Clapham.

Crescent Grove was built in the 1820s by Francis Child, a wealthy English banker, as a family investment. On this site, he built an estate of 39 individual houses, laid out in a curiously asymmetrical way. Blocks are near identical, including stock brick with stucco dressings including basement and banded ground floor forming voussoirs to round-arched windows, entablature and blocking course and mansard slated roofs with dormers.

Properties have since been sold off to individual investors and developed into a bustling neighbourhood. However, being Grade II listed and in a conservation area, any embellishments to the site are particularly challenging. Numbers 29 & 31 have now been converted into multiple flats, all of which fit-out to a high standard, having kept many of the period features, in keeping the Georgian history and maintaining their individuality.

Another great addition to EK RCA’s historical building collection.
