Few properties set the heart racing as much as grand homes carved from magnificent listed colleges and hospitals in the leafy commuter belt.

One such project is Royal Connaught Park, above, in Bushey, Herts., originally the Royal Masonic School for Boys. Its splendid Edwardian buildings and setting made it a hot location for films including Indiana Jones and Harry Potter. The latest homes have been created from the school sanatorium, laundry and maids’ quarters, and feature large windows, vaulted ceilings, ornate stonework, wooden beams and plaster cornicing. They range from 710sq ft one-bedroom flats to 4,484sq ft five-bedroom houses. Contemporary interior design works well against the heritage features. 
The development is set in 100 acres of parkland, with a residents’ gym and swimming pool, plus a free shuttle bus to Bushey station, 20 minutes from Euston. Prices from £355,000 to £2.79 million. Call 01923 222292.
