WATCH THE VIDEO TOUR! The Echelon Building - An extraordinary Edwardian grand red brick hospital building has been re-imagined as 17 unique homes, each one different from the other, combining beautiful original details and crisp modern design, in rooms with ceiling heights for living on a grand scale.
Original Edwardian and sleek modern doors with the contemporary use of zinc welcome you, your family and friends into your new home. Space is in abundance with ceiling heights that stretch up to 3.6 metres high, so an impressive welcome is always guaranteed.
Early Edwardian sash windows measuring a stunning 2.5m high have been painstakingly refurbished by our craftsmen, whilst the iconic zigzag design of the echelon building allows every room to be flooded with sunlight.
Where German engineering meets beautiful design, kitchens are sleek and seamless, with handle-less ultra-lacquered finishes, feature islands and contemporary seating, plus plenty of extra space in the formal dining area. Luxury Hacker Systemat art units come topped with slimline worktops and Neff appliances.
Polished concrete, luxurious carpeting and engineered oak floors blend seamlessly with period features, creating floors in-keeping with contemporary living.
The Echelon Building is a masterclass in modern living. Architects and designers were inspired by its unique shape — meticulously restoring original features, harnessing the incredible space and light, whilst bringing in every modern amenity to make each home something to be proud of.
And so to sleep. In every home, the bedrooms are the jewel in the crown. From guest bedrooms to master suites, bedrooms at the echelon building still have the same soaring ceiling heights on the first floor as on the ground. With architectural detailing that includes period coving, some master suites feature An incredible 57 sq m of space.
The bathrooms are the perfect balance of original and contemporary design. High Edwardian ceilings, large beautiful sash chord windows, sleek Italian bathroom suites finished off with beautiful modern taps and shower heads.
From the gardens at the back to the echelon wood at the front, there’s beauty in green space here. Landscaped with mature trees and planting and complete with a pathway that circles the whole Severall’s site, the echelon wood is a haven of green and calm, complete with original summer shelters to enjoy peace and fresh air.
With just 17 homes in the collection, the echelon building is part of a historic site. Only four original buildings remain to this day, and our name comes from the unique architectural shaping of the hospital’s original master plan. A blueprint for the development today that gives each home its Edwardian grandeur.
