Luxury Residential Restoration Of Historic Newcastle Building

Issue 53

An ambitious restoration and conversion of a historic Newcastle building to create luxury apartments has come to fruition.

Byzantine House, located in Eskdale Terrace, Jesmond – originally built as a place of worship – has been converted into 10 one and twobed apartments and mews by design-led local developer Provenance Developments. Built in 1914-15 to a design by local architect Marcus Kenneth Glass, the Grade I listed building showcases the style and opulence of an Art Deco interpretation of the Byzantine Revival style.

Provenance Developments and its award-winning interior designer Melanie Brown have paid respect to the unique features of the building and designed new homes that boast individually designed layouts, light filled interiors and unrivalled levels of high-quality finish. The first showhome recently opened with property agent Urban Base handling enquiries and marketing. Jan Dale, director at Urban Base, explained: “The luxurious one and two bed apartments have been meticulously refurbished to retain a classic style, while offering a superb standard of contemporary specification.”

Byzantine House was originally built as a synagogue. More latterly the building was used by Newcastle High School for Girls. And now the building has been converted into luxury living.
