Downsizing in luxury:Fulham’s “lost” riverside homes are a hit with the Kensington and Chelsea set

Fulham is due for its second round of gentrification as new homes are luring buyers to cash in from neighbouring Kensington and Chelsea...

Kensington and Chelsea money is reaching Fulham, where new homes are luring buyers to cash in and go for more space in an “affordably prime” postcode on  the desirable north side of the Thames.

This drift across the border repeats a Seventies trend, when a similar spillover triggered the first round of Fulham gentrification. In came young, middle-class buyers and renters, displacing the area’s older skilled workers, and within a few years the face of Fulham transformed. 


Now the area is changing again. The huge Earl’s Court redevelopment is boosting the area around Brompton Cemetery. Meanwhile, developers continue to  discover Fulham’s “lost” riverside, creating luxury flats for affluent downsizers.

New homes appearing in Lillie Road include Ariana Apartments, above, a scheme of 20 flats in a Victorian corner building with shops at street level. 

Prices from £600,000 to £999,950. Call Dexters on 020 7386 5386.
