Kensington Park Gardens, W11
With its outer shell of a grand Victorian terrace, and the interior of a swanky boutique hotel, this is a property with unique charisma. The creation of Camu & Morrison, the property is set over four floors where each area of the house has its own distinct feel and all of them invite you to spend time in them.
The main entrance leads into the raised ground floor and the morning room and grand dining room, divided by large wooden doors. A combination of muted metallics and splashes of vibrant colour showcase old style in new form. The colourful kitchen lies below on the lower ground, adjacent to an all important utility room and staff quarters complete with its own entrance.
Moving upwards, a wide staircase guides you to the formal reception room. A statement in itself, with high ceilings, full-length windows, double width and ample seating, the room invites you in and begs you to stay. Should you tire of the reception, simply wander into the adjoining library and mull over an antique book or retire to the upper floors, which house four bedrooms, each with their own unique charm and style.
Boutique hotels are renowned for the attention to design details and the individuality of the rooms. In this property there are several design schemes, as seen in the bathrooms.
Although different colour palettes are used, the overall feel of the property remains constant. The generous proportions of the raised ground floor dining room allow ample space for entertaining and guests will further delight in the views across the garden square and beyond.
