Standing proudly on a quiet residential street in Notting Hill, this elegant five-bedroom stucco home is the perfect example of balance. Its thoughtful interior design sensitively blends the house’s period features with contemporary design, and its grand formal spaces with more relaxed family rooms to create a special and inviting home, moments from Westbourne Grove.
With its soaring ceilings, original full-length sash windows and nearly 2,900 sq. ft of living space spread over five floors, the house offered a glorious sense of light and scale. The warm tonal palette was a consistent design thread and created a seamless flow through the cleverly conceived layout.
Occupying the entire ground floor, the grand dining room and bespoke kitchen offered plenty of space for entertaining a houseful of guests. The dark polished oak floor grounded the room and is beautifully juxtaposed with the intricately carved cornicing on the ceiling. The floor to ceiling sash window in the dining room overlooking Hereford Road floods the space with light while the carved stone working fireplace lends the room a cosy feel. Contemporary art and mid-century furniture in the dining room, and sleek white units in the kitchen, keep the space feeling modern. The graceful first floor drawing room is immaculately designed. Rich parquet floors, soft sage green walls and an exquisite crystal chandelier celebrate the building’s heritage and are a sophisticated backdrop for the previous owner’s collection of contemporary furniture and art, which provide pops of vibrant colour. Foxed mirror panels on the chimney breast bounce light around the room and create a striking design feature. The opulent pelmet curtains at the floor to ceiling sash windows add to the sense of drama. Leading from this room, a snug provides a relaxed place to watch television or read a book.
The master bedroom suite occupies the entire second floor and is decorated in warm neutral tones to create a calming and inviting sanctuary which still feels connected to the rest of the house. The monochrome modern en-suite shower room has a smart double basin vanity and walk-in waterfall shower. Three further family bedrooms and a bathroom sit at the top of the house, private and secluded from the social rooms downstairs.
On the lower ground floor, the media room/playroom, guest bedroom, bathroom and laundry room provide yet more versatile space for family life and entertaining guests. It also gives direct access to the fantastic outdoor space. The expansive landscaped walled garden combined intricate stone, concrete and wood detailing with lush planting to create a serene oasis. Featuring a patio, a fabulous dining zone and connected to a cosy terrace on the ground floor, the enchanting garden makes this design-led home truly exceptional.
Tucked away on one of West London’s many charming residential pockets, this seriously impressive and beautifully presented five-bedroom family home wonderfully marries elegant and traditional features and scale with contemporary flair throughout. As distinctive and desirable as it gets, there’s something so special about this home that’s unlike anything else in the area.
Occupying the entire ground floor, the bespoke kitchen and dining room boast the most lush finishes, from ornate cornicing on the ceilings, grand full-length sash windows that overlook the beautiful and quiet street that is Hereford Road, to the polished oak floors that beautifully complement the rest of the neutral palette.
Housing one of three immaculately designed reception rooms, the first floor lights up with the warm tones in the furnishings and fittings, pale green walls and a truly mesmerising chandelier that completes a design-led yet liveable pocket. From the daring velvet green sofa to the complementing fittings, there’s nothing not to love about this space.
A cleverly conceived layout, the master bedroom and three additional bedrooms are secluded on the second and top floors to separate private spaces from the social zones. Rich and inviting, the indulgent master bedroom suite beautifully captured a space within the home to retreat to, and yet, still feels connected to every other floor.
Just shy of 2,900 square feet of living space meant there were plenty of opportunities to cater to entertainment accommodation – and the previous owners of the home understood the potential to connect the media room/playroom, guest bedroom and third reception with direct access onto the fantastic outdoor space – creating a super desirable yet rare indoor/outdoor living environment on the lower ground floor.
Perhaps one of the most impressive features is the expansive, landscaped and manicured walled garden that, without doubt, is a central feature of the home. Featuring intricate rock, wood and concrete detailing, a fabulous dining zone and connecting to the cosy terrace on the ground floor, there’s an undeniable sense of flow that runs through this property. Truly a knock out space, this enchanting and elegant family residence in one of London’s most desirable postcodes is at the forefront of design-led living.
