A brief history
Wellgarth Manor was originally constructed as a Nursery Training school around 1916; an article in "The Building News" on the 6th September, 1916 names the architects as Lovegrove & Papworth.
Papworth was the last of a famous architectural family dating back to 1715 with his ancestor John Buonarotti Papworth being one of the founder members of the Royal Institute of British Architects.
On Papworth's departure for the war the design is thought to have been handed over to Arthur Penty of the Parker & Unwin's. It is a striking building set well back from the road and designed in the Arts & Crafts style.
Although not listed, it is a unique building in the locality and makes a positive contribution to the Hampstead Garden Suburb Conservation Area.
Harrison Varma have lovingly restored the exterior of this building in keeping with its Arts & Crafts heritage, whilst on the interior they have achieved the very latest modern concepts in luxury living.
