Lancaster Gate, W2 (sold)

Located on the top floor of a Grade 2 Listed stucco-fronted Victorian mansion block in Bayswater on the northern edge of Kensington Gardens, this 1,228 sq ft 2 bed apartment was very outdated when purchased in April 2013 and required modernisation.

An extensive refurbishment was carried out: fitting new bathrooms, kitchen, skirting, doors and banisters; renovating the wooden floors; redecorating and refurnishing; replacing the air conditioning; fitting a new glass floor to the raised mezzanine; and redesigning the layout of the bedroom entranceway by re-siting one of the doors and creating a new corridor.

Lancaster Gate was brought to the sales market in Spring 2014, achieving a final sale at asking price of £1,895,000.
