The conversion in 2011 of what was the old magistrates court for Acton is a masterclass in bringing Queen Anne revival elegance together with easy contemporary living. 

This restrained and beautifully crafted two-level apartment offers 3/4 bedrooms, a flowing open plan living/dining/kitchen space, separate study area/bedroom 4, two well-appointed bathrooms – one with a steam room – two private terraces, parking and shared freehold ownership of a garage.  The layout of the space is endlessly flexible due to the non-load bearing internal walls.  The Old Courthouse is located close to the bustle and great facilities of Acton and near to what will be the new Crossrail station, Acton Mainline. 

Entering the site through wrought iron gates is a reminder of the history and human stories that would have taken place within these walls when the building was a Courthouse.  The building was constructed in the early 1900s in the style that aligned fin de siècle flourish with the incoming interest in modernism.  This is a building with good bones.  At the time of  the 2011 conversion the freeholds of the new properties were converted which means that this property has the potential (subject to planning permission) to dig out the substantial basement area. 

The spacious open plan living/dining and kitchen space is full of light and beautifully detailed.  The kitchen is equipped with all appliances, washing machine, dryer and great prep space.  Two good sized bedrooms are also on this floor along with a fabulous bathroom with overhead shower and bath which also has a steam room facility.  French doors lead out to one of the two private terraces.  This east-facing terrace area wraps around the front entrance and is a great sun trap during the first half of the day. 

Upstairs is a vast vaulted main bedroom which occupies the entire top floor.  The clever design has incorporated a great deal of storage space and an en-suite bathroom.  Floor to ceiling windows can be fully opened to create one huge space or have the potential to divide the space into another bedroom or study space.  There is a second terrace leading from the master bedroom – a favourite spot for the current owners. 

To the back of the courthouse there is private parking and shared freehold ownership of a garage – a precious commodity in London.

Acton is a bustling area, full of culture, history and amenities. The former magistrates court sits in the heart of everything, minutes from Acton High Street and Churchfield Road, which has a thriving independent scene with wine bars, gift shops, bakers, butchers and gastro pubs. The former bingo hall has been converted into one of West London’s leading climbing centres, and Acton Park is only a few minutes away for big outdoor space.

Closest supermarkets are a Morrison’s superstore five minutes away & Lidl a short distance away.

Transport options are very good, with Acton Central overground an 8 minute walk, Acton Mainline (to receive Crossrail approximately 2022) is only a 15 minute walk. There are a number of good bus routes only a minute or twos walk away taking you to Shepherd’s Bush in 11 minutes and straight through to the City.
