Composing A Style


Once a recording studio that welcomed industry legends including rock band U2 and singer Adele, now transformed into new homes, Old Dairy House is a boutique development in the heart of trendy Kensal Rise, W10. Designed by POW Architects for award-winning developer Fruition Properties, the modern apartment collection offers stylish one, two and three bedroom homes.

Located at 133 Kilburn Lane in sought-after Kensal Rise, just north of Portobello Market, the development offers 16 beautiful homes, each with a private balcony or decked terrace, all finished to the highest standard. With a charming brick façade to complement the area’s Victorian architecture, the three and a half storey building has expanses of glazing, with flexible commercial space on the ground floor, alongside a green residents’ courtyard and a landscaped communal roof terrace.

Now stylish new apartments, Old Dairy House offers a blend of character and individuality. The open plan design allows for modern living with contemporary finishes throughout.

Each apartment benefits from oak style flooring to the kitchen and living room with plush carpet in the bedrooms, black stained wooden doors, recessed lighting and large windows to maximise natural light. The fitted bespoke kitchens have high grade integrated appliances and the bathrooms are fully tiled with thermostatic showers. Added features include underfloor heating throughout with individual thermostats and data points in every room. The development offers secure cycle storage and a video entry system.

With the entire development due to be complete this winter, the first select homes have been released for sale off plan.

Old Dairy House sits on the north side of Kilburn Lane overlooking the rooftops of Sixth Avenue, on the site of a historic dairy farm. The area was largely rural until the 1880s, when the first homes were built along Kilburn Lane. A section of the farm survived with brick buildings erected for the farm and milking; the farm was then known as Higgins Dairy Farm (recorded in 1890), then as Higgins Bros Dairy, operating until the late 1960s.

After over a century of agricultural use, in the late 90s the site became known as The Old Dairy Recording Studios, with the former farm buildings run by Liveprime from 1994 to 2014. During this time, as many as 13 different music companies were based at the studios. The studios were used by many notable artists including the then up-and-coming Adele. The Brit award-winning producer duo Flood and Alan Moulder had a room at the studios, writing for and working with huge names including U2. The studios were eventually sold and purchased by Fruition Properties for residential development, gaining planning approval for the mixed-use transformation in November 2019.

Following an artistic renaissance in the mid noughties, Kensal Rise has become a sought-after neighbourhood in north-west London, with notable celebrities and musicians having homes in the area.

Old Dairy House is a short walk from Chamberlayne Road, once voted the “hippest road in Europe” by Vogue magazine. Nearby Portobello Market offers a vast array of eclectic shops, vintage stalls, and record stores. The fast-changing enclave is very well connected, close to Queen’s Park underground station, with Oxford Circus just 15 minutes by tube.

Mani Khiroya, CEO of Fruition Properties, comments: “The Kensal Rise area has been quietly developing over the past few years to become one of London’s up and coming hotspots. This will be further bolstered by the forthcoming Kensal Corridor transport and public realm proposals led by Brent Council and TFL.”

“Our site at 133 Kilburn Lane is well placed to benefit from these improvements, while playing its own part in the revitalisation of the area to provide outstanding new homes and key employment space.”

Matthew Leitch, New Homes Director at DEXTERS says: “Old Dairy House is a fantastic transformation of the historic site into stylish new homes, with an interesting history as both a dairy farm and then as successful recording studios for sell-out musicians. The new development has been beautifully designed to complement the local Victorian architecture with a charming brick façade. Kensal Rise is a vibrant, innovative community and Old Dairy House offers great new homes, ideal for those who want to enjoy the artisan shops, cafes and creative lifestyle on their doorstep.”

The first homes have been released for sale at the Old Dairy House available through DEXTERS. Prices start from £595,000 for a one-bedroom apartment, from £795,000 for a two-bedroom apartment, and from £985,000 for a three bedroom apartment.
