Ashlar Court Launched this Weekend by Linden Homes
66 apartments created in former Royal Masonic Hospital nurses' home
This weekend, Linden Homes is launching its development Ashlar Court, created by converting the iconic Grade II listed building which once housed nurses working at Hammersmith's Royal Masonic Hospital.
Describing the development, close to Ravenscourt Park as "contemporary style meets classic 1930s character" Linden Homes says the 66 one and two bedroom apartments offer buyers a unique chance to secure a special slice of London’s Modernist architectural history.
The brick-built local landmark is Grade II listed and was where nurses once lived working at the neighbouring hospital opened in 1933 by King George V.
The developer says residents will enjoy private grounds, Art Deco highlights and the original features designed by the influential architect firm of Burnet, Tait and Lorne which helped lead the way in 20th century British Modern building style.
The building's design means that the apartments will have tall windows, with French windows in some properties opening onto balconies, terraces or private rooftop gardens.
The site also now includes a pair of new one and two-bedroom detached houses.
A landscaped garden featuring a refurbished fountain is the development’s centrepiece and its character has been honoured with the careful preservation of historic features such as decorative bronze lighting and iconic clocks.
The developer says the redevelopment of the site will bring new life to Ashlar Court since it closed as nurses’ accommodation in 1994. A five-star private hospital is to be opened at the adjacent Royal Masonic Hospital, which won the RIBA Gold Medal for best building of the year in 1933.
You can find out more about the development by calling 01883 334 400 or on Linden Homes' website.
Ashlar Court is one of a number of new developments in Hammersmith, together offering hundreds of new homes. They include St George's two developments Sovereign Court in the central Hammersmith and Fulham Reach on Hammersmith embankment and St Peters Place on the borders of Hammersmith and Chiswick.
