Preparation of Significance Assessment detailing the heritage value of the building
Attended site visit with Westminster City Council Design and Conservation Area.
121-141 Westbourne Terrace is a Grade II listed building, located on the north-east side of Westbourne Terrace bounded by Cleveland Terrace to the south and Bishop’s Bridge Road to the north, within the Bayswater Conservation Area.
The building was formerly a terrace of grand houses constructed in circa 1840. The terrace formed an integral part of the grand scheme of houses along Westbourne Terrace constructed by
William King and William Kingdom. The houses along Westbourne Terrace formed long stuccoed terraces of four storeys and attic over a basement, with pillared porches, many designed by T. Marsh Nelson. Following archival research, it is apparent that the building was completely rebuilt in the 1960s resulting in the building holding no evidential or historical interest.
