Bayswater is reclaiming its classic style, as the shabby hotels that have plagued its good looks become luxury lateral flats.

The area was laid out in the mid-1800s with grand squares and cream stucco-fronted terraces between Paddington station and Hyde Park. Later, the influx of rail travellers triggered conversion of many houses into bedsits and B&Bs.

But gentrification is spreading, especially towards the border with Notting Hill. A listed five-storey home at Kensington Gardens Square was a backpackers hostel, but Fruition Properties has reinstated original features and reconfigured it into six spacious flats. 

Residents get a key to the private garden square, recently upgraded with replica gates and railings. The flats are priced from £2.5 million. Call Jackson-Stops & Staff on 020 7664 6649. 

Garden House, another of the square’s refurbs, offers flats with tall windows on to the tranquil green space. From £995,000. Call 020 7408 5155.
