Westbourne Park Road, W2
The Domus Nova writer of these descriptions has one anorak quality to her: yours truly was once a docent at a museum in the US that had a large collection of Native American artifacts, can you believe.
Upon spying the collection this flat owner accrued of Late Reservation Period ceremonial Sioux Tribal items that just about any museum would kill for, she got a little too excited. Anyone else looking at this flat would probably be more impressed by the incredible master suite that takes up the entirety of the first floor, but is flooded with light courtesy of the massive skylight. The two other bedrooms on the ground floor are also blessed with lots of natural light as is the raised ground floor lounge.
Downstairs, the large reception and kitchen make a fantastic entertaining space. Ghost Kartell chairs surround an antique table that has been redecorated in silver leaf. Modern sculptures are juxtaposed against a tooled leather Western saddle. Modern photography adorns the walls and while the adjacent kitchen could certainly cater for any dinner party, we suspect the vendors took full advantage of Notting Hill’s many restaurants and cafés - why wouldn't you with The Westbourne and Gusto on your corner.
In the master bedroom, it was obvious that the owners used this space as a retreat. There were plenty of lengthy novels with which to curl up in bed while tucked behind the staircase was a luxuriant double ended bath. The generous sky lights above made it feel as if one was sleeping under the stars. The staircase then led to a private roof terrace just big enough for two. Beautiful.
