Making the Grade – listed former police station becomes new homes in Maida Vale

Posted 8 June 2016 by Keith Osborne

Redrow London is making high-specification new homes from a listed building in the desirable Maida Vale area of north-west London...

A Grade II-listed former police station on Harrow Road, Maida Vale is starting a new life as a collection of brand new homes, thanks to a conversion from a high-end housebuilder.

Now known as Westbourne Place, this collection of 49 luxuriously appointed one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments from Redrow London sees some properties set in the converted 1911-built local landmark, with others in a brand new block at the rear of the site.

A brand new show home launches on 11 June, with the interior designed by DAPA matching elements of the heritage architecture contemporary trends and the latest buyer expectations. The open-plan two-bedroom show apartment has a spacious private terrace and an additional room that might serve as a ‘den’ or study.

The specification includes a designer kitchen with quartz worktops and Smeg appliances, engineered oak flooring and oak internal doors, full-height bay windows, elegant white bathrooms and en suites and luxury tiling.

Outside, there is a large, landscaped, communal courtyard for residents, which creates a harmonious connection between the old and new buildings.

The conversion apartments will also have access to a number of car parking spaces, to be constructed at the rear of the site.

Maida Vale remains one of the most sought-after residential areas for new homes in London, surprisingly tranquil yet within very easy reach of all the major commercial and leisure areas at the heart of the capital, including the West End, City and Docklands. The open spaces of Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill are also not far away, while the walkways along Little Venice and the Regent’s Canal are just around the corner.

In the near future, current rail and Tube links will be joined by a Crossrail connection at Paddington, under two miles away, with quick connections to Heathrow, Reading and through the centre of the capital.

The apartments at Westbourne Place are priced from £550,000.
