Westbourne Park Villas occupies a prominent corner position in the conservation area of Westbourne Park, in between Notting Hill and Royal Oak, W2. Built in 1836, the building has since been sensitively restored throughout by our team of master craftsmen, revealing two light-filled two and three bedroom contemporary apartments which enjoy exceptional levels of design and specification. The original façade has also been revitalised, highlighting ornate Victorian features.
The development forms part of a unique land swap, whereby Fruition Properties has relocated the West London Buddhist Centre into its new One Westbourne Gardens mixed-use scheme nearby, providing a newer, more suitable home for the organisation, while providing an opportunity to transform this period building.
Both apartments at 94 Westbourne Park Villas feature vast living/kitchen/dining rooms which enjoy grand ceiling heights and large windows, with apartment one spanning 1,647 sq ft in total and apartment two measuring 1,350 sq ft respectively.
Each enjoys a bespoke fitted Roundhouse kitchen, beautiful parquet flooring with underfloor heating, Rako mood lighting, and multi-room audio entertainment systems, while period-style fireplaces create a link between the past and present. Each residence has unique design traits, including a ‘floating’ timber and glass staircase in apartment one and a zig-zag design staircase in apartment two.
The attractive streetscape and lifestyle offering associated with W2 is well documented, whether you are exploring historic Dickensian streets, shopping for bohemian wares at Portobello Road and Westbourne Grove, or dining in one of many Michelin Star restaurants. The nearby meandering canals of Little Venice and the roaming 242 green acres of Kensington Gardens come into their own as the seasons change, providing numerous opportunities for repose, all within walking distance of 94 Westbourne Park Villas. Residents of the development can also enjoy iconic institutions at their doorstep; ‘The Westbourne’ and ‘The Cow’ gastro pubs, as well as ‘The Vintage Collection’ furnishing boutique have been hallmarks of the area for 25 years.
Mani Khiroya, Managing Director at Fruition Properties, comments, “We have a history of delivering boutique projects in W2, with 94 Westbourne Park Villas serving as the latest example of how an innovative approach to development can result in a positive outcome that achieves something different to what is usually expected. Working with the West London Buddhist Centre has allowed us to unlock this site, transforming it into two residences that truly stand out, while also providing the Centre with a new purpose-built facility.”
On the border of zone’s one and two, Notting Hill has stations on the District, Central and Circle lines, while also being a short journey away from the West End by car. This combination of efficient routes across the city and convenient access by car to the variety of London airports ensures that residents of Westbourne Park Villas will never struggle to get around. Once Crossrail is complete in 2018, journey times across the city will be even quicker from the nearby Paddington station.
