Bayswater is renouncing its seedy past, its B&Bs and tourist hotels, and selling itself as a family area of new homes. The latest project is the former Comfort Inn budget hotel on Craven Hill Gardens.
Amazon Property has developed it as The Hempel Collection of 12 lateral apartments and three townhouses. The new homes, built behind a retained white-stucco façade, have double-height luxurious interiors and views across a private garden square. Call 020 7861 5499. The Queens Cinema in nearby Bishops Bridge Road is being redeveloped into 16 flats. The splendid Art Deco entrance is being kept and new architectural elements include a “Bauhaus-style” exterior clad in glazed terracotta panels.
Shops at street level improve an unloved corner, while a new traffic system is creating a public space at the junction with Westbourne Grove. Call Knight Frank on 020 7861 5499.
