ECLECTIC ELEGANCE

Westbourne Park Road, W2

Sophistication is the first word that comes to mind when stepping into this grand Westbourne Park Road home – or should we say utopia? A project undertaken by James Wyman Architects, hats off to the extensive refurbishment, turning this four-bedroom family house into a stunning architectural showstopper.

A modern flare added to each pocket of the home creates a pleasant surprise for guests – and, moreover, is uniquely contrasted with classic elements such as stunning curved floor-to-ceiling sash windows overlooking the quintessential homes of Notting Hill. The Crittall glass detailing scattered throughout the house beautifully balances out traditional features – we can’t decide what we love more.

Eclectic modern attributes jazz this home up whilst harmoniously encompassing a very historic feel. Just take a look at the innovative fluid staircase, quite literally twirling up in a snake-like movement and adding subtle hints of playful architectural detailing that make this home so special and inviting.

A hidden gem of this remarkable house is the lively garden, a cosy getaway spot to retreat to and enjoy some sunshine, or better yet, play host to a lovely summer dinner party. Versatile is the only way to describe this space – including wooden, stone and grass elements which tie together with the full-length windows that lead into the contemporary open-plan kitchen. There is a sense of effortless unity between the various stretches of the property, which is easier said than done. Clearly, this home was built to entertain – and who can forget the ping pong table perfectly placed in the garden and without doubt a favourite with guests.

Exuding the perfect mix of modern yet classic, safe but daring – all we can say is that this home has evolved into a phenomenally executed project – well done, James Wyman Architects!
