Mulberry Court Development

Introducing John O’Neill, founder and CEO of Lifestyle Residences

John O’Neill, founder and CEO of Lifestyle Residences

John O’Neill, one of the family behind the Mulberry Court development, is someone with an impressive track record in the property industry, and a clear vision that has guided his career over many decades.

John established his place in the industry with an impressive roster of high-profile projects. His track record includes working on iconic sites such as the Palace of Westminster, prestigious hotels including the Dorchester and the Hilton Park Lane and world class restaurants: Corrigans of Mayfair and Alain Ducasse to name just two. Today, with his team at Lifestyle Residences, John focuses on homes for first time buyers, town centre homes, and apartments for independent retirement living.

From the very outset of his career, John wanted to develop a different approach to building projects. John is passionate about improving town centre locations and existing estates, and identifying how a development can best integrate with its local environment.

Every Lifestyle Residences development is an opportunity to bring to life the ideas he first explored while writing his thesis which focused on adapting buildings for new uses.  For John, developments form the heart of new communities and breathe life into otherwise underused urban sites and locations. He believes it’s only possible to complete work that achieves these aims with a real understanding of the history and demographics of an area.

This sort of understanding forms a foundation for successful projects that are a good local ‘fit’ – as recognised when one of John’s early builds with Lifestyle Residences, the conversion of Churcham House to residential apartments in Teddington, was given an award by the Teddington Society, the local group that aims to preserve and enhance the quality of life of those living and working in Teddington.

With John’s decades long track record delivering high-end commercial projects for demanding clients, John brings to Lifestyle Residences developments a recognition of the value of quality design, and incredible attention to detail and finishing.  With his team at Lifestyle Residences he works to create beautiful places that people will enjoy calling home. He brings together his substantial experience across multiple strands of the construction industry: as contractor, operator and developer to deliver desirable places to live. 

Every week brings the completion of Mulberry Court one step closer. Here in Hampton Wick, John and the Lifestyle team’s vision was to build somewhere that buyers could ‘downsize to their dream lifestyle’, enjoying friendships on their doorstep and the convenience of concierge style services as well as care when they need it. The location had to be exactly right – close to the village high street with excellent transport links and an abundance of green space. As to the build itself, there is an elegance to the interiors and shared spaces that will give the finished development a club-like feel, and every detail from the separate garden ‘rooms’ designed for socialising, peaceful relaxation or events, to the carefully furnished library and café are shaped to bring people together in their active, happy retirement.

As the way the UK lives changes due to COVID-19, the demand for quality homes, with ample outdoor space will continue to rise.
