Ashlar Court's £1.5m Ballroom Apartment Is Strictly A One-Off
19 Jan 2015

Proving that the best things come to those who wait, one of the last properties to arrive on the market at Linden Homes’ Ashlar Court collection in Hammersmith is a former 1930s ballroom transformed into a magnificent apartment.

Luxuriously spread across nearly 1,500 square feet, the two-bedroom home was in a previous life the Elford Room – where nurses who once lived in the now Grade II listed building would practice their dance steps.

The apartment still holds a strong sense of Modernist glamour thanks to the retention of original features such as the grand travertine and bronze fireplace and an atmospheric porthole-style window.

The respectful preservation is balanced with a contemporary treatment for up-to-date living, including a modern kitchen with integrated appliances, built in wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom.

The apartment is just one of just two luxury homes now remaining after a wave of new interest saw a number of properties taken off the market in recent weeks.

“The Elford Room is a truly one-off opportunity,” said Linden Homes South East managing director, Darren Maddox.

Already a landmark building, since its restoration Ashlar Court has become a sought-after address. It was recently commended in The Sunday Times British Home Awards 2014 and What House? Awards 2014.

Its popularity is thanks to the combination of thoughtful and luxurious refurbishment and the quiet, leafy surroundings – set within a wider buzzy neighbourhood full of shopping, diversions and eateries.

Stamford Brook Station, which is just a two-minute walk away, is within Zone 2, so central London is a 20-minute trip on the District Line. By car the A4, A40 and M4 are all within easy reach, with journeys to Heathrow around 35 minutes.

All of the remaining homes come with a designated parking space. A concierge service adds an additional level of security, as well as the peace of mind of a 10-year NHBC warranty and two-year Linden Homes customer care warranty as standard.

Matthew Watts (43) bought a three-bedroom duplex apartment there. It’s a quiet haven from working in Mayfair where he runs his own project and facilities management consultancy during the week. At the weekends he’s back with family in Henley-on-Thames.

“I like the idea of the Art Deco features and it’s pretty modern inside. It’s got a luxury hotel feel; that was an added bonus,” he said. “I like the area too. It’s obviously cheaper than Chiswick but there’s a lot of work going on in Hammersmith at the moment so I think it’s definitely a good investment area.”
