Leamington Road Villas, W11
Completely redefining lower ground floor living, the previous owners of this garden apartment transformed the meaning entirely. Cool, calm and creative, the various pockets of this home exude an undeniable feeling of opulence throughout – effortlessly combining rustic and soft finishes to create a toned-down luxe vibe.
The blend of textures keeps things interesting – an integrated brick wall, oakwood furnishings and polished concrete flooring add dimension and excitement to each space. An earthy feeling, which many try to accomplish yet fail to live up to the standard, has been thought out meticulously and executed flawlessly. Combined with low-key interior pieces such as the uber minimalistic wall shelf resting so elegantly next to the kitchen space, or the hints of greenery dispersed in the form of plants, completes a contemporary yet inviting home. Appreciation must not be forgotten for the skylight positioned directly above the dining bench, allowing for endless streams of light to enter this spectacular abode.
Interior and exterior seamlessly integrate to become one through the use of Sky-frame doors that reveal a stunning and incredibly unique garden space. Featuring an outdoor dining area, terrace and tranquil summer house, it’s obvious from the onset that this is the absolute showstopper of the home. A rarity for the area, the love put in to create such an outstanding outdoor space has truly paid off, and we can’t seem to take our eyes off the level of versatility found in one zone. Nestled in the corner of the garden and beautifully blending in with the surrounding trees, the summer house is any minimalist’s dream. Discreet, simple in its structure and entirely made out of wooden planks, the clean lines complement the garden’s other elements, creating the illusion of an elongated and endless space.
What can only be described as subtlety unique, this superb home has hit the nail in its design, aesthetic, flow and use of space to embody everything that Domus truly stands for.
