Randolph Crescent, W9
Bought in 2006 from a couple who had lived there for 35 years, this home was the perfect blank canvas for the new owners to make their own. Not ones for fuss, they wanted somewhere that was uncomplicated and so contemporary design details were introduced alongside existing period features to make the most of the building.
Henning Stummel Architect's work included ‘flipping’ the rooms, relocating the living space to the front and the bedrooms to the rear to overlook the garden. A bespoke Miele kitchen with birch plywood framing and Burmese teak countertops, matching units in the bathroom and underfloor heating were installed. Sliding timber panels were fitted in the hall to conceal a utility and cloakroom and to separate the living areas from the rest of the space when required.
The home offered a large open-plan living space, two double bedrooms [one of which was used as a study], two bathrooms and access to exclusive communal gardens.
When the owners were based at the property, they loved its tranquillity, the neighbourhood feel and access to the gardens. “The area is beautiful, with its white stucco-fronted architecture, scale and grandeur of Clifton Gardens, and local spots including Baker & Spice and Clifton Greens. You also have Regent’s Canal which is great. As an area, Little Venice is unequalled”.
