Crest Nicholson is proud to be developing new homes at the Sunbury-based Park Avenue site made famous by London Irish. The rugby club’s former training ground is part of Sunbury-on-Thames history and to keep the legacy alive the developer has named all of the properties at its new development after the greats that played there.

‘The Avenue’ was home to London Irish for 83 years and it was important to Crest Nicholson that the house names properly reflected the club’s past. Homes on the development are named to celebrate many of London Irish’s legends from The Armitage to The Everitt to The Morgan. Younger fans may not have seen the mighty Standish John ‘Cags’ Cagney, but the Irish international forward valiantly led the charge as club captain in the 1928/29 season. Andy Mulligan was instrumental for the team in the 1950s, helping bring London Irish some of its most successful years and making his debut when he was just 16! Between them, Delon Armitage and Kieron Dawson represented London Irish for some 20 years between 1996 and 2016. And then there’s Duncan Cormack…a man who needs no introduction. All are celebrated with their own house names at Park Avenue.

Crest Nicholson recognises the responsibility of developing on a historic site with such a strong sporting heritage and is excited to be ushering in a new phase of play – one that celebrates the past and builds a promising future.

As London Irish fans will know, Park Avenue is set in a prime location and enjoys a relaxed village lifestyle and beautiful leafy spaces. The handsome period architecture of Sunbury, its welcoming local pubs, restaurants and boutique shops, also help make it an attractive option for first-time buyers and families alike. Some of the properties are available with Help to Buy and prices at Park Avenue, Sunbury-on-Thames, start from £319,950.
