Preston Road – History & Restoration Process

Preston Road – History & Restoration Process


Due to its central location in the heart of Brighton & Hove, charming architecture and rich history, our new Shared Ownership development, Preston Road, is a unique property. 


Designed around two Victorian villas, which are in the process of being restored and modernised, and a new build connecting building, Preston Road combines period elegance with contemporary living. 


The Victorian villas at Preston Road date back to the 1870s, and were originally built as part of the Clermont Estate – which was developed by local tradesman, developer and landowner, Daniel Friend (1816-1902).


Wherever possible, the Victorian history and architecture of the original buildings is being maintained. For example, the large room proportions, generous light-filled sash windows and other original decorative features are being kept and enhanced. 


The property’s grand staircase and ornate balustrades are also being carefully treated by our expert team of restorers.  


While modern conveniences are being added to the entire property to bring it up to the standards expected for contemporary living, we’re confident the refurbished villas will retain their unique charm and hark back to their former glory.
