Hewer Street, W10


Property Details

House (2 bedrooms)

If walls could talk, this Victorian dairy turned gallery-esque home would whisper its story. Minimalist design, maximum character. It’s a truth universally acknowledged that repurposed buildings often make for the most interesting living spaces. Hewer Street is no exception. Once a Victorian cattle shed, it has transformed over the two decades since its original conversion in the late 90s. The aesthetic sensibility of its two artist owners shows: natural light filters through the vaulted skylight of the triple-height living area, giving the home the feel of a studio or gallery. Spatial design was guided by Theo Otten of Otten + Partners Architects, who carved the voluminous proportions with ERCO architectural lighting, glass-sided gangways and Crittall doors. Minimalist design, maximum character. A delicate industrial aesthetic pays homage to the building’s working heritage – original wooden trusses, polished concrete, metal. Dark features and a sculptural use of light and shade delineate the space. On the ground floor, a matt-black TV snug forms an intimate, visual retreat between the brilliant-white, modern kitchen to one side and the uplifting living space to the other. Ideal for entertaining. Looking down from the second floor is fantastic. Up here, two en-suite bedrooms adopt a softer take on the warehouse feel – warm oak, pale greys and diaphanous, indirect light make space for solace between Hewer Street’s many extraordinary architectural moments.

You can feel the history on the quiet cul de sac of Hewer Street. The reimagined Unigate dairy counts Victorian terraces, a converted post office and a former 1930s undertaker among its neighbours. Beyond that: the upmarket eateries, bars and boutiques of Golborne Road, Portobello Road and Ladbroke Grove. Within a 10-minute walk, Kensal Green Cemetery takes its cue from Père Lachaise in Paris – an atmospheric backdrop to your morning stroll, as is the adjoining Grand Union Canal.
