Eversley Park

Eversley Park is a landmark on the south coast, with views out over Folkstone, Sandgate, the Kent Downs and the Channel.

Built as a school in 1905/06 by Charles Kingsley it has been used for education, by the Secret Intelligence Service in the Great War, teacher training and a Japanese College.

The challenge

Clague was commissioned to help reinvent the main building at Eversley Park as a bespoke development of residential apartments, whist to also design a sympathetic, high qaulity housing scheme in the grounds of the estate.

The results

The two resulting developments have been a shining success, with the housing scheme delivering a total of 17 family homes, perfecly set into the context of the historic estate and responding to the original main school house.

The school house itself provides a total of 22 luxury apartments and two cottages, with the main building being carefully restored to its full glory, retaining the historic features and securing the future of this wonderful building.
