“Clarendon Works is one of our more quirky and unusual listings,” says Miles Meacock, head of sales agent Strutt & Parker’s office in Notting Hill. “It’s not your typical W11 period property, but it’s definitely got the ‘wow’ factor. It’s attracting a variety of prospective buyers who tend to scour the whole of London looking for such unique property conversions.”
Situated on Clarendon Cross, a quiet street off Portland Road, it’s also close to the shopping and transport of Westbourne Grove and a short walk to Holland Park.
