Flat (1 bedroom)

A practice in monochrome minimalism. Beyond the stucco-fronted entrance of this 19th-century townhouse, a modern story unfolds. Formerly the residence of Guglielmo Marconi, a pioneer of wireless communication, this one-bedroom apartment has been sympathetically reimagined by Ola Jachymiak Studio, whose portfolio includes Notting Hill favourite, Beam Café. Its spatial design is thoughtfully arranged around maximising natural light. Inside, Victorian mouldings, cornices, rosettes and a period fireplace mantel pay homage to the building’s period heritage. From there, a contemporary aesthetic takes hold. In the open-plan eat-in kitchen and reception room, crisp contrasting accents – white, streamlined cabinetry and a jet-black splashback – resonate with an element of sophistication. The monochrome theme is even more striking when it catches the glow of the morning sun, channelled through full-length French doors. In warmer climes, step on to the east-facing terrace for a morning coffee with a view. In the reception room, open shelving is dedicated to displaying stylish pieces. Herringbone floors flow through to the bedroom, where sash windows and wooden panelling play with the sense of depth. Wind down here with a well-worn novel. The bathroom unites modern French and British design by pairing a Burlington London sanitaires with custom cement tiles. The twin vanity and waterfall shower promise elevated mornings.

Hereford Road is a beautiful street with stucco-fronted buildings well situated for the stylish bars, boutiques and restaurants of Westbourne Grove, Ledbury Road and the wider Notting Hill and Bayswater areas. Notting Hill Gate Underground Station is close by (Central, Circle and District lines) with Bayswater, Queensway and Royal Oak also nearby.
