The Times: On the scent of a hideaway home
Thu 01 Aug 2013
Secret homes with lush gardens lurk in city centres, says Lauren Thompson.
With London bursting at the seams, many developers turn to conversions of disused commercial buildings to create new and private homes.
The Mill House near Shepherds Bush Common was lying derelict for many years while the regeneration of the surrounding Brook Green neighbourhood took place.
Now its conversion into nine apartments is almost complete, with a discreet entrance at the end of a gated no-through road. Prices start from 499,950 with Marsh & Parsons.
