A rush of interest greeted the launch of Linden Homes’ hotly anticipated collection of refurbished luxury apartments at Ashlar Court in Hammersmith.
The award-winning housebuilder has pulled out all the stops for this Grade II listed landmark building where it has successfully married authentic 1930s character with today’s contemporary style.
The launch on Saturday October 19th drew property hunters from far and wide, eager to secure a genuine piece of architectural history.
A gentle yet imaginative refurbishment has preserved Art Deco highlights and 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.
The result is a stunning collection of sophisticated and 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.
Nearby is Stamford Brook Station, within Zone 2, so 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 around 35 minutes.
Ashlar Court’s show home provides a vision of how lucky residents can use the creatively laid-out apartments to blend their architectural pedigree with contemporary elegance to produce enviable homes and a truly modern lifestyle.
New 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.
Decorative bronze lighting and iconic clocks have been preserved along with the stone staircases and their classically styled balustrades. Some of the listed features being retained include spectacular travertine and bronze fireplaces, walnut veneer panelling and woodblock floors.
The attractions continue outside where beautifully landscaped private gardens feature the original fountain restored as its centrepiece.
The site also now includes a pair of new one and two-bedroom detached houses. A concierge oversees the development and an elevator services every floor.
Many of the homes have underground secure parking and all come with peace of mind thanks to a 10-year NHBC warranty and two-year Linden Homes customer care warranty as standard.
Linden Homes South East managing director Steve Bangs said: “We’re very pleased with the feedback from our buyers’ responses to Ashlar Court. It’s one of our flagship developments and its popularity shows why.
“The apartments’ style is a sophisticated mix of classic and contemporary and it’s really hit the spot for those seeking aspirational living. Ashlar Court residents will enjoy a prime location, excellent transport links and a host of attractions on their doorstep.
“It’s also a unique chance to secure a special slice of London’s Modernist architectural history and it’s unlikely these homes will stay on the market for long. So get in touch, register and pay a visit to get the best chance of securing a property.”
Near to Ashlar Court is Ravenscourt Park, an idyllic manicured green space which is a calm oasis amid the buzz of Hammersmith where a bustling community thrives on a Thames-side lifestyle.
With Chiswick High Road on one side and the spectacular Westfield on the other, there is quick access to luxury brands, fine dining and two of the capital’s major comedy and music venues: The Hammersmith Apollo and Shepherds Bush Empire.
Until 1994 Ashlar Court was where nurses once lived working at the neighbouring Royal Masonic Hospital, opened in 1933 by King George V. It won the RIBA Gold Medal for best building of the year in 1933 and is now to be reopened as a five-star private hospital.
