Phase two of the refurbishment of the Welsh Church in Waterloo is now underway by contractor Frank Rogers on behalf of sister company, FR Developments.
The stunning building on Sandringham Road has seen phase one of work complete including three apartments and three, three-bedroom townhouses. Interest in the conversion has been strong from the outset and two sales are now complete under phase one.
Phase two will see renovations focus on the annexe and caretakers house. Under this element of the programme, which will complete the overall scheme, two apartments will be created in the annex with a further two apartments in the caretaker’s house. Properties within the annexe will include a host of period features, including original wooden beams.
As with phase one, there will be a keen focus on attention to detail. The Frank Rogers team are liaising closely with conservation specialists to ensure the integrity of the stunning property is upheld and indeed, enhanced.
Sliding sash windows will be installed throughout whilst a glass balcony will be introduced as part of one of the annex apartments. Dave Linderman explained: “We are utilising a combining of old and new products, materials, techniques and applications. The installation of a new glass balcony for example will sit against a traditional historic brick façade and compliment and enhance the very different designs.
“This is a stunning building that brings together the very best of modern and traditional. There continues to be strong interest in phase one which we would expect to continue through phase two. Work under this phase is expected to be complete in June when the entire scheme will be finalised.”
