About this property

  • The properties are located in Notting Hill on the border of Holland Park, an affluent and well-established enclave within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. They occupy a mid-terrace position on the southern side of Lansdowne Walk between the junctions with Lansdowne Road to the west and Ladbroke Grove to the east. The surrounding area is mainly residential, characterised by private garden squares and elegant, period architecture. Lansdowne Walk is convenient for a vibrant array of shops, cafes restaurants and leisure amenities located nearby on Clarendon Cross, Holland Park Avenue, Notting Hill Gate, Portobello Road and Westbourne Grove. Westfield Shopping Centre is also within easy reach located less than a mile to the west, offering world-class leisure and retail. Hanover Garden Square is directly opposite the properties, while Ladbroke Square Gardens are located immediately to the east and the green open spaces of Holland Park are a short walk to the south. In addition to this Kensington Gardens, which leads into Hyde Park, is 1.2 km (0.7 miles) from the property.

Local information

  • The properties are located within 150 metres of each other and are owned by a Registered Charity, The Sheppard Trust, (Charity Number: 1133356), and operated as housing for women in housing need.
  • The Sheppard Trust was founded by Miss Elizabeth Sheppard in 1855 to provide low cost accommodation for elderly ladies living on small fixed incomes. Over the years, it has rented or owned several properties in different parts of west London. Over a twenty-year period from the mid-1930s to the mid-1950s it bought properties in the Holland Park/Notting Hill area. The Trust encourages its residents to live independently in their flats, but are ready to offer support when needed. The Trust has decided to dispose of their freehold interests as the subject properties are
  • no longer fit for their existing purpose and the intention of The Trust is to use the capital receipt from the sale of both assets to develop a new purpose built accommodation for their residents in East Molesey
