The Lodge/Extern House

Client: Northminster
Builder: Elvington Park Building Services
Landscape Designer: MESH Architects

The grade II listed Lodge & Extern House at the former St. Joseph’s Convent was purchased in December 2017. Built in 1874 and 1875 the buildings were designed by ecclesiastical architect George Goldie. The properties had lain vacant since the convent closed in 2012.

Within the building’s historic fabric, nine 1 & 2 bedroomed apartments and a 2-bedroom house have been created. In the grounds 4 modern single bedroom houses have been developed. Central to the development is a communal garden where herbs and vegetables are planted and residents engage with one another reflecting the former convent use.
