About this property

  • The Power House is an iconic Grade II listed building, originally built to power the trams of West London in 1901. In 1985 the upper part of the building was converted into a collection of superb flats. This fabulous penthouse is split over three levels, offering exceptional views, versatile living space and four bedrooms, albeit there is scope to arrange the space in different ways to suit individual lifestyles. The majority of the bedroom accommodation is housed on the first level, all of which have plenty of built in storage. Also on this floor are a family bathroom and luxurious shower room, serving the spacious master bedroom which extends into a private courtyard encased in glass. The second level opens into a substantial open-plan reception / dining room – this is a spectacular double-height space with full-height windows, bringing tremendous light into the living and entertaining areas. A double door gives access onto the west facing decked roof terrace. There is also a well appointed kitchen and further bedroom. A second staircase leads to the mezzanine which would act as an ideal study or bar area, and which showcases dual aspect windows giving terrific panoramic across London. The Penthouse is a truly remarkable property with an array of cleverly concealed storage areas, a dedicated secure space in the covered car park, and lift access.

Local information

  • The Power House is situated just off Chiswick High Road and is ideally placed for easy access to Turnham Green and Stamford Brook Underground stations (District line). There is easy access to central London via the A4 and Heathrow and the West via the M4.
  • Chiswick is a hugely popular and prosperous large suburb of West London located on the northern side of the River Thames, 6 miles (9.7 km) west of Charing Cross. It was historically an ancient parish in the county of Middlesex, with an agrarian and fishing economy. The name "Chiswick" is of Old English origin meaning "Cheese Farm" and originates from the riverside meadows and farms that are thought to have supported an annual cheese fair on Dukes Meadows up until the 18th century.
  • The style of property in Chiswick is varied offering everything from mansion flats along the High Road and on Sutton Court Road, to pretty Victorian cottages on the Glebe Estate. Large Victorian detached houses are found in Grove Park, and Arts & Crafts houses throughout Bedford Park. The River front, Chiswick Mall and Strand on the Green are lined with elegant Georgian houses ensuring that there is a fantastic variety of property throughout the local area.
  • Chiswick High Road, famous for its boulevard-style pavements, is full of quality independent outlets and an increasingly up-market selection of high street names which run from Hammersmith through to the Chiswick roundabout. Chiswick is a great place to shop and eat. Tesco, Sainsbury's, Waitrose and Marks and Spencer are all represented. Serving meat lovers are Macken Bros, Wyndham House and Ginger Pig butchers. Covent Garden Fishmongers do as their name suggests. Bayley & Sage have an amazing cheese counter and the Grove Park Deli on Fauconberg Road is also very popular. The Old Cinema provides Antique Vintage Retro Collections. Attractive fruit, vegetable and flower stalls add colour to the High Road. High Street banks, chemists, dry cleaners, beauty spas, fashion shops, off licences and general repair shops as well as many other outlets means there is no need to go elsewhere.

  • Lord Burlington's Chiswick House is a picturesque, 18th-century Palladian mansion with gardens designed by William Kent. The birthplace of the English Landscape Movement, the gardens, with their statuary hedges and vistas, has had a £12 million makeover which includes a new café by architects Caruso St John. In recent years Chiswick House grounds have played host to Soho House group's House Festival, enticing the great and the good of the media industry with performers who are both nationally renowned and locally resident.
  • Bedford Park, London's first garden suburb, was built between 1875 and 1886 as part of the Arts & Crafts revival. Victorian property developer Jonathan Carr instructed lead architect Richard Norman Shaw (alongside EJ May, W Wilson and EW Godwin) in the building of a collection of houses and studios that now form a conservation area and are for the most part Grade II listed. Many of these houses feature elements of styling from William Morris, to whose legacy is dedicated the William Morris Society at Kelmscott House on Upper Mall.
