Courtnell Street, W2
When people talk about a property being given a new lease of life, this is the sort of thing they mean.
Previously owned by actress Miranda Richardson, the house was once very ‘Notting Hill’ – artistic, vibrant and eclectic. It has since undergone a spectacular refurbishment and is now in our opinion one of the most impressive homes in the area. With new owners at hand, it offers nearly 3,000 sq ft of outstanding space, detail, luxury and light within an enviable contemporary context.
One of the biggest undertakings was the addition of a large basement stretching beneath the house and garden. Featuring a huge living space, a bedroom suite and laundry, this floor is close to 40 ft long. The rest of the home includes an exceptional ground-floor living space with a modern kitchen and dining area leading directly to a walled lawn garden. Cantilevered stairs, which appear to float, take you to the upper levels and three further double bedrooms and bathrooms.
Beautifully finished, it’s no surprise that the property has been fitted throughout with the best in home technology. And though the archetypal modern home inside, it’s a delight to see it sitting behind a gorgeous traditional London façade. Pair this with its location on the Artesian Grid, and it’s fair to say that this property is unrivalled.
