Have you spotted our tube adverts at Warwick Avenue, Belsize Park and Putney Bridge stations? The adverts, which highlight some of our recent work in the nearby areas, are appearing at the stations between now and the start of May.
Belsize Park (NW3), North West London
Belsize Park is home to several mid-Victorian stucco fronted houses. The area also has several converted flats in large Victorian and Georgian buildings.
The area first appears in records from the 1300s when it was then referred to as ‘The Manor of Belsize’. As London grew in size, Belsize Park developed as a suburb with many wealthy Londoners choosing to live in the area.
Today the area is a conservation area located within the London Borough of Camden.
Warwick Avenue (W9), West London
Warwick Avenue tube station is located in Little Venice, a small neighbourhood in the City of Westminster. Little Venice is home to several Regency white painted stucco terraced town houses and mansion blocks.
Nearby in Maida Vale the types of buildings vary from large, white stucco-fronted villas to Edwardian redbrick mansion blocks. Recently a conservation area has been applied, covering from around Randolph Avenue down to Elgin Avenue, to protect some of the older streets in the area.
Putney Bridge Station (SW6), South West London
Unlike the name of the station suggests, Putney Bridge Station is actually located on the Fulham side of the River Thames, not the Putney side.
Fulham is part of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and is home to several roads of Victorian terraced houses. The area has a long history, with Neolithic tribes believed to have lived by the riverside in Fulham in around 3000 BC.
During the Victorian period Hammersmith and Fulham was a popular location for worker accommodation. With the vast growth of London industries over the Victorian era, the area has one of the highest concentration of pre-1900s housing in the capital (source).
Across the river, Putney (SW15) also has a rich and varied heritage extending from settlements in Neolithic times to the present day. The area has a variety of period properties from Victorian terrace houses to larger Edwardian properties. Putney was initially located in Surrey and didn’t officially become part of London until the later part of the Victorian period in 1889.
