A collection of 19th century army barracks in Aldershot are being carefully-restored into new properties, as part of CALA Homes’ development at Wellesley. 

Originally built in 1892, the McGrigor Barracks became the station for No 1 Company Royal Army Medical Corps in 1897. The CALA at Wellesley development forms an important cornerstone for the regeneration of the wider Wellesley masterplan of 3,850 homes.

The newly-refurbished buildings comprises of one four-bedroom detached house and 10 three and four-bedroom terraced villas. The characterful restored barracks ooze Victorian charm with ornate red brickwork exterior, slate roofs and tall mock sash windows which allow light to flood through the properties.

Priced at £595,000, the four-bedroom detached ‘Augustus House’ features a generous open plan kitchen/family/dining room with patio doors opening out to the rear garden. The spacious sitting room also boasts patio doors, alongside a handy storage cupboard and cloakroom. Up the staircase there is a large arched feature window, flooding the space with light. The home has four well-proportioned bedrooms, with the en suite master and second bedroom boasting fitted wardrobes, alongside a large family bathroom.

Meanwhile, plot 102 three-bedroom ‘Charles House’ villa features a long hallway, which leads to the spacious sitting room at the front of the property and an open plan kitchen/dining/family room with French doors to the garden, alongside a downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs, the master bedroom features an en suite and fitted wardrobes and the well-appointed family bathroom serves two further good-sized bedrooms. The ‘Charles House’ villas are priced from £445,000.

Alison Deakin, sales and marketing director at CALA Homes Thames, said: “The refurbished properties at CALA at Wellesley have been something really different for us as a new home builder. The Charles and Rose House villas and Augustus House really bring to life the site’s former use and provide a nod to its rich heritage. The architecture has also provided the inspiration behind the new homes at the development which we have ensured remain in-keeping with the historical style.

“We expect these stunning properties to prove popular with house hunters looking for period charm with all the benefits of modern, low-maintenance living. As such, we would encourage anyone interested to get in touch as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”
