Property Details

Flat (1 bedroom)

This building might be Grade-II listed, but inside this one-bedroom apartment the appeal is timeless. Think understated cornicing, warm-wood floors and generous proportions that create space to let your style shine – you’ll notice its current designer-owner has done just that. The double-fronted living room faces south, making the most of natural daylight and window-box-framed views over Porchester Square Gardens. Especially beautiful in bloom. The space is open-plan, but its L-shape creates a subtle division between areas for cooking, dining and sinking into the sofa. Handleless cabinetry hides quality appliances in the contemporary kitchen. It’s cleverly concealed around the corner, letting a bespoke bookshelf and banquet take centre stage. The perfect spot for a long table and dinner with friends. Period details continue in the bedroom, where a sash window opens to the stucco-fronted Gloucester Terrace. It’s served by a separate bathroom with dark-veined marble, a Burlington-style sink and a seamless, walk-in shower that give the feel of a boutique hotel. Discreet, underfloor storage keeps belongings out of sight and safe. A rare perk in a historic property.

Despite its central location, Porchester Square is exceptionally peaceful, an arrangement of residential Victorian buildings – stucco fronts, portico entrances, juliet balconies – built in the mid-19th century and refurbished by Westminster City Council in 2020. Its public garden is decorated with cherry trees, manicured lawns and a children’s playground. Westbourne Grove is within a five-minute walk, and well-connected Paddington just a little farther.
