Overview

The Westbourne Place project realised statement living at its best: a collection of one, two and three bedroom luxury apartments located in one of west London’s most enticing and unique addresses.

49 apartments are spread across three buildings: 25 in Westbourne House, which includes the offices and storerooms of the old police station; three in Dixon Mews, which housed the cells; and 24 in Butler House, a new build block behind the main former police station building.

At Westbourne Place all homes are finished to the highest specification, with contemporary accents and a focus on natural materials to enhance the feeling of relaxed luxury. The impressive Grade ll Listed Victorian building sets an inspiring tone for Westbourne Place.

Restored to its full splendour, the original building provides both a striking street presence and a fascinating history. Inside, retained heritage elements include high ceilings and period features, intensifying the grandeur of the building.

Beyond the historic façade and building, a courtyard forms the serene heart of the development. Originally the station’s parade ground, this square is today a calm and sheltered oasis, carefully landscaped to offer residents a variety of relaxing and intimate outdoor areas.

The police station office and waiting room at the front of the building have been refurbished and converted into a lightfilled apartment with a bay window and high Edwardian-era ceilings. Some apartments contain an internal terrace, a living wall and a study.

By contrast, the cell-block conversions in Dixon Mews, where people would be held while their cases were being processed, are far more unusual. Delivering the apartments while working within the constraints of converting a Grade II Listed building was a large scale project and converting the oppressive building into luxury homes was a challenge.

The completed project transformed the original building, with each property combining contemporary style with character and a blend of high-quality fixtures and fittings. Many of the original features were retained, including winding staircases, high ceilings and the original cell windows, which are complemented by floor to ceiling windows to maximise the light.

The Westbourne Place project involved the conversion of a former police station into 49 luxury apartments located in one of west London’s most enticing and unique addresses.
