Built in 1885 as a country house and coach house, South Park became a school in the 1930s and remained an educational establishment until 2002. From this time until the present, it was unoccupied and became severely dilapidated. It was listed as Grade II in 2009. In 2014 OSP Architecture ecured planning permission for conversion of the main house and coach house into residential apartments, with the provision of 26 new houses within the large, sloping grounds as enabling works to support the extensive renovations required to the listed buildings. Works are currently ongoing.
