Lexden Park House

Location: Lexden Road, Colchester, Essex

Date: 1994

Originally built in the 1800s as a private house, with spectacular grounds including a large ornamental lake. After being hugely extended Lexden Park House became a private school before becoming part of Colchester's Technical College. Following a long period of vandalism and a severe outbreak of dry rot, it was converted into five, very large apartments including one that is over 3000 sq feet that occupies the entire ground floor which allowed the principal rooms to be restored and preserved without subdivision.
