Time Running Out To Secure Modern Luxury With Classic Character
29 Apr 2014

The popular chemistry of award-winning Linden Homes’ Ashlar Court in Hammersmith – where 1930s classic character meets modern luxury – has just 14 properties left available for sale.

Most of the Grade II listed building’s 68 exclusive one, two and three-bedroom apartments, have been snapped up in quick time since their much-anticipated launch late last year.

It’s become a sought-after new address that enjoys quiet, leafy surroundings, excellent transport links and a buzzy wider neighbourhood with Shepherd’s Bush and Chiswick and some of London’s most popular cultural attractions on its doorstep.

The new three-bedroom duplex show apartment which opened on Saturday April 12th exemplifies the contemporary style and sensitive care which has revived the landmark site and saved the Art Deco highlights of a local architectural icon and Modernist gem.

The elegant show home boasts two south facing terraces, tall windows, and a thoughtful lay-out across two floors perfect for 21st century living. It enjoys a beautiful view across Ashlar Court’s neatly tended gardens where a restored fountain plays as the centrepiece.

Inside, decorative bronze lighting and iconic clocks have been preserved around Ashlar Court along with the stone staircases and their classically styled balustrades. Some of the listed features retained include spectacular travertine and bronze fireplaces, walnut veneer panelling and woodblock floors.

Matthew Watts (43) recently 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.”

Among the 14 homes still being chased by property hunters is one of two newly built detached houses on the site that has yet to be released, but has an anticipated asking price of £1.4m.

Emily Nesbitt, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes South East, said: “Ashlar Court’s mix of contemporary and classic style has made it an incredibly popular choice for people who want that extra special dimension and quality to their home.

“The unique historical character, sought-after location and exclusive amenity means these properties – and the enviable lifestyle they deliver – aren’t going to be around for long. We’re advising people to get in touch now so they don’t miss out.”

A concierge will oversee Ashlar Court giving that extra level of security, and many of the homes have either above or below ground parking. All come with the peace of mind of a 10-year NHBC warranty and two-year Linden Homes customer care warranty as standard.

Nearby is Stamford Brook Station, 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.
