The Wall Street Journal, House of the Day - The Old Bank, Bayswater

Tara Bernerd's intriguing interior-designed property, The Old Bank was awarded House of the Day by The Wall Street Journal.

"I bought the Old Bank about six years ago," said Ms. Bernerd. "What first attracted me was its vast New York loft feel, but right on Hyde Park. The ground floor is very true to its origins with floor-to-mid-height panelling, marvellous old doors and open-plan feel, but it's the open-plan feel of a large bank. While the ground floor work was all about restoration, the lower ground floor was all new rebuilding with the kitchen, the new bedrooms and the en-suite bathrooms. The way we've used the space allows us to have to have many zones" "It is perfect for entertaining, but there are quieter corners where you can feel quite cocooned."

The property is listed with Domus Nova for £4.95 million
