Mapperley Park is a leafy suburb a mile north of Nottingham City Centre. Initially developed as an exclusive suburb for the Edwardian middle classes, Mapperley Park retains a lot of it's architectural charachter and was designated a Conservation Area in 1976.
Homes in Mapperley Park range from Studio's and One Bedroomed flats, often in period conversions, right up to £million pound luxury homes with swimming pools and tennis courts. House prices in the area are at a premium to much of Nottingham.
Mapperley Park and Alexandra Park were speculatively built around the turn of the last century and were completed over a period of over fifty years. The area includes many good quality examples of Edwardian & Victorian properties and the area is synonymous with the renowned architects of the day. Changes in lifestyle over the years has meant that a lot of the substantial properties constructed in Mapperley Park were no longer suitable as family homes, and many have been split up over the years into flats. There has also been the addition of small mews developments and purpose built apartmemts that have given Mapperley Park a younger and more diverse demographic than the wealthy industrialist families the estate was originally built to house.
Developed on land that formerly belonged to Mapperley Hall, Mapperley Park retains its leafiness, and the Conservation Area status, whilst sometimes inconvenient for home-owners, means that the majority of trees have a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) which ensures the area retains its character.
