Contemporary Style In A Classic Setting: Ashlar Court Coming Soon
12 Sep 2013

Contemporary style meets classic 1930s character at award-winning Linden Homes’ stunning Ashlar Court development in Hammersmith where the first elegant new apartments will be released soon.

The homes are a unique chance to secure a special slice of London’s Modernist architectural history. The brick-built local landmark is Grade II listed and was where nurses once lived working at the neighbouring hospital opened in 1933 by King George V.

Residents will enjoy private grounds, Art Deco highlights and the original features designed by the influential architect firm of Burnet, Tait and Lorne which helped lead the way in 20th century British Modern building style.

A refurbishment is creating a collection of spacious one and two bedroom homes. Tall windows flood interior spaces with light, with French windows in some properties opening onto balconies, terraces or private rooftop gardens.

Classic style enjoys modern convenience too with underground secure parking for each home, a concierge, and elevator servicing every floor. The site also now includes a pair of new one and two-bedroom detached houses.

A landscaped garden featuring a refurbished fountain is the development’s centrepiece and its character has been honoured with the careful preservation of historic features such as decorative bronze lighting and iconic clocks.

The original feel is set off perfectly against contemporary interiors. Finishes include sleek fitted kitchens, superb quality bathrooms with top-of-the-range fittings, and en suite shower rooms off many of the master bedrooms, plus ample storage space.

Each property comes as standard with a 10-year NHBC warranty and two-year customer care warranty for peace of mind. There are 68 homes available but 19 have already been sold.

Ravenscourt Park is a calm oasis with Hammersmith on its doorstep where the buzz of a thriving community mixes with an idyllic Thames-side lifestyle.

With Chiswick High Road on one side and the spectacular Westfield on the other, it offers quick access to luxury brands, fine dining, and easy reach of two of the capital’s major comedy and music venues, The Hammersmith Apollo and Shepherds Bush Empire.

From nearby Stamford Brook Station, within Zone 2, central London is a 20-minute trip on the District Line. For drivers, the A4, A40 and M4 are all within easy reach, with journeys to Heathrow taking no more than 35 minutes.

The redevelopment of the site will bring new life to Ashlar Court since it closed as nurses’ accommodation in 1994. A five-star private hospital is to be opened at the adjacent Royal Masonic Hospital, which won the RIBA Gold Medal for best building of the year in 1933.

Linden Homes South East managing director Steve Bangs said: “The apartments at Ashlar Court boast stylish contemporary design that mixes perfectly with the carefully preserved classic 1930s surroundings. They are simply stunning.

“The location is enviable, being so close to the Tube for quick links into the centre of London yet with the M4 on hand for journeys out of the capital – all that and great shopping and nightlife nearby too.

“It’s a fantastic combination which is going to generate a lot of interest. When these go on the market, sales are likely to be brisk so I’d advise people to register with us so they are at the head of the queue.”

The show home and sales centre are due to open in mid-October. To find out more or to book a viewing call 01883 334 400.
