New homes in London:stylish and quirky apartment conversions in Maida Vale

A Grade-II listed Edwardian police station has been cleverly converted into 24 flats in Maida Vale. 

The Metropolitan Police station sell-off is yielding designer flats in desirable areas of London including Hackney, Clapham, Brockley and Hampstead.

Maida Vale has the latest unveiling. The handsome, Grade II-listed Edwardian building has been split into 24 apartments, while two new blocks have been built behind it.

Renamed Westbourne Place, the former nick, above, makes for an imposing street presence and bears the original “Police” sign, set into the façade’s stonework. Prices start at £550,000. Call 020 3538 3791.

Another police station, this time in Battersea Bridge Road, has morphed into The Metropolitan, with 48 flats created in the original red-brick building. The design connects homes in the old station to new-build blocks at the rear via a glass atrium.

Battersea Park is only moments away — and it is only a five-minute plod to the Thames. 

Prices range from £750,000 to £1,075,000. Call Linden Homes on 020 3131 2762.
