Bayswater is regaining the cachet it enjoyed 150 years ago when grand stucco terraces were built between Hyde Park and Paddington station.

Ultra-smart development The Lancasters started the change in perception of the area, stigmatised a decade ago as “the wrong side of Hyde Park” by Knightsbridge estate agents. Then niche developers snapped up run-down B&Bs for refurbishment into luxurious lateral flats.

Buyers twigged they could get far more for their cash than in neighbouring Notting Hill, and Bayswater now rivals Mayfair.

On a prominent corner site in a tree-lined conservation area, 94 Westbourne Park Villas, is the conversion of a Buddhist centre into grand, open-plan flats with high ceilings, parquet flooring and glass-and-timber “floating” stairways.
