A second wave of regeneration for Brentford

Two commercial buildings are being converted into homes, from £309,995.

Brentford has embarked on a second wave of regeneration, with commercial buildings being converted into homes. The former Alfa Laval complex in Great West Road is now WestSide, with 137 apartments arranged around sheltered courtyard gardens. Prices from £309,995. Call Bellway on 0845 676 0255.

Great West Quarter is a new 13-acre precinct with 900 homes being built around Wallis House, a splendid Art Deco edifice, once headquarters of airline BOAC and GlaxoSmithKline.

The building has an impressive colonnaded façade with an airman statue perched at the top, dating back to the time when parts for Spitfire planes were made there. Alongside are colourful new-build blocks with concierge, underground parking, a crêche and shops set around a public square. Two-bedroom apartments cost from £480,000. Call Barratt on 0844 811 4321.
