Lyons Place in Maida Vale: famed architect Sir Terry Farrell designs new collection of boutique London townhouses


Amira Hashish

The five three-bedroom townhouses are now on the market and include nods to the rich cultural history of the area.

Famed postmodernist architect Sir Terry Farrell has designed a new collection of boutique townhouses, now on the market in an enviable north-west London location, where Maida Vale meets Little Venice and St John’s Wood.

Farrell, who is behind iconic properties including the MI6 building, featured in the Bond films, is a long-time Maida Vale resident, so these three-bedroom homes are particularly close to his heart.

The five houses are part of the Lyons Place development and reflect his bold, colourful style, with a façade of midnight blue ceramic tiles, plus a larger-than-life petrol pump art installation.

Objects dotted throughout the scheme, from vintage cobblers’ lasts to local history books, have been chosen from the area’s many art and antiques dealers to evoke the rich cultural history of this leafy corner of the capital.

Prices start at £2.5 million.
