Attractively set in a leafy location within Richmond Borough Conservation Area 67 and is part of the first groundbreaking 'Span' development by Eric Lyons (President of the Royal Institute of British Architects (riba) 1975-1977). He worked under Walter Gropius (founder of the Bauhaus) and became noted for progressive developments with signature attention to landscape and community, with a blend of modernism with more traditional elements like tile hanging and stock brick. Beginning with Parkleys in 1955-6, his practice gained many awards and even as recently as 2005, Span received a special Housing Design Award given to schemes that meet the current Sustainable Communities Plan. Parkleys is Grade 11 listed by English Heritage. For further reading, potential purchasers are directed to 'Eric Lyons and Span' by Barbara Simms, riba Books 2006 or view the video at
