Cop a load of this Maida Vale police station that's becoming luxury homes


‘Ello, ‘ello, what ‘ave we ‘ere? A 105 year old police station is being turned into a series of high end apartments.

A former Maida Vale police station is set to be transformed into luxury flats.

Built in 1911 by architect to the Metropolitan Police, John Dixon Butler, the Grade II listed building has been bought by developers Redrow London.

The planned 25 apartments are due to be somewhat more luxurious than spending a night in the clink.

Quality fixtures and fittings will be carefully introduced to the building’s one hundred year old framework, and the apartments will range in size from a roomy 550 sq ft to a positively expansive 1,325 sq ft.

All the properties in Westbourne Place will include contemporary kitchens and ‘hotel style’ bathrooms, and those with reception rooms will enjoy high ceilings, wooden bay windows and other original period features.

The Victorian brickwork façade has been restored to its former glory; the original ‘Police’ sign set into the entrance stone is sure to be an arresting sight.

Internally, original architectural elements such as the two staircases and feature balustrades have also been preserved.

There are 25 apartments planned, along with a collection of new build properties is also planned, to be located at the rear of the site.

If you want to lock down your own part of London’s police history the apartments are a total steal, with prices starting at £550,000.
