Renting in Earl's Court:four-storey mews-style family homes offer sun terraces and secure off-street parking

Located close to Earl's Court, modern townhouses off Lillie Road have been built on the site of a hotel car park.

Until 1880, most of Fulham was covered in market gardens, but with completion of the District line an enormous tide of development flooded over the area, bringing street after street of Victorian terraces, many quite modest.

A century later, the same houses were gutted, improved and extended by a new generation of modernising young gentrifiers updating their period terraces.

But if you want totally modern, a new terrace of townhouses off Lillie Road, close to Earl’s Court, may be for you. 

Peel Place has been resourcefully built on the site of a hotel car park with a mews-like quality, combining traditional materials such as brick with crisp, contemporary-design finishes including gunmetal-grey aluminium window frames and glass walls. 

The clever floorplan by architects Dexter Moren Associates creates flowing spaces that connect seamlessly with sun terraces and sheltered courtyards. 

Over four floors, the houses come with either a garage or secure off-street parking. 

Initially the homes are available for rent. From £1,150 per week. Call Jackson Stops and Staff on 020 7828 4050.
