New homes in Millbank: one of Westminster's best kept secrets

Located near the Palace of Westminster, Millbank - best known for Tate Britain - is still a quiet corner but prestigious new homes developments in ex-Civil service buildings are set to change the neighbourhood.

Millbank, best known for Tate Britain, is still a residential secret. Despite the location close to the Palace of Westminster, it’s a remarkably quiet corner, with a well-kept mix of private, council and charitable housing and a sprinkling of new apartment blocks, often redevelopments of  ex-Civil Service buildings.

Abell & Cleland in John Islip Street is one of the latter. This prestige project has flats overlooking lush gardens, plus a 24-hour concierge, gym, pool and business centre. Show flats are open for viewing. 

Prices from £1.15 million. Call 020 3813 5884. Other new developments in the “parliamentary quarter” include Great Minster House. The 61 luxurious flats here have high ceilings and parquet floors. Prices from £975,000. Call 0844 811 4321.

Vincent Square is the neighbourhood’s best address. Homes overlook 13 acres of private playing fields owned by Westminster School. Backing on to the square at 26 Chapter Street are 31 new flats in an Art Deco building. Prices from £980,000. Call Barratt on 0844 8114321.
