Rare hacienda-style development at Putney Heath gets grade-II status
Government heritage adviser Historic England has listed a development of 28 flats in south-west London in recognition of its rarity in the UK and exceptional level of preservation.
Colebrook Close, near Putney Heath, was built in 1934 to designs by Marshall and Tweedy that the watchdog said appeared to have “more in common with the United States West Coast condominium” than anything in England.
Its luxury three-bedroom homes were split between seven blocks with upper-storey flats, each boasting a 6m balcony or loggia, desined to allow residents to take advantage of what brochures for the development described as the area’s “extremely clean fresh air”.
