Case Study: Art Deco living in West Horndon, Brentwood, Essex

Designed for living

It's an unlikely place for such a stylish Art Deco building, but it is certainly becoming a well-known landmark for the village of West Horndon, near Brentwood in Essex.

In the middle of West Horndon village, an exceptional Art Deco building has been 'designed for living'. This magnificent building contains nine luxury apartments, which are intended for those who desire a spacious and elegant lifestyle. Each apartment has two bedrooms, en-suite three piece shower room to the master bedroom, a retro kitchen and a lounge/dining room with walk-in bay window. The penthouse apartments also benefit from a spacious balcony.

Charm and beauty

The white, curved walls and simple lines of this contemporary building truly reflect the charm and beauty of the Art Deco period. The building was developed by Stewart Homes, the development division of Barry Stewart & Sons Ltd and was influenced by the work of 1930's English Modernists, such as Oliver Hill. Some of this original architecture, with Art Deco detailing, can be still be seen in West Horndon village, which inspired the development.

The Directors worked closely with both Brentwood Council and local residents to ensure that this building was something very special. It's the first modern day, Art Deco development in West Horndon and the response has been extremely positive.

Well connected

The location of these luxury apartments were ideal for buyers who wanted village life, and at the same time, be only 5 minutes from the M25 and other commuter routes. The apartments are within walking distance to the main line train station and the journey time into London and Canary Wharf is approximately 35 minutes. Brentwood, Romford, Lakeside and Bluewater are also nearby.

All apartments are now sold but a few of them have been transfered to the rental market.
