A two-bedroom mews home in Notting Hill that offers a fresh perspective on a traditional blueprint and the cityscape beyond.
There’s a playful feel in this cobbled cul-de-sac – one that echoes the dynamism of nearby Portobello Road. In this gated mews, the duck egg-blue façade of this newly reimagined property looks right at home. Spread across three floors, Alba Place’s contemporary design takes its cue from its candy-coloured neighbours.
The open-plan kitchen and living area sits on the first floor. Clever zoning and discreet design make the most of this west-facing space; slow breakfasts around the marble island, lazy afternoons on the sofa. Dinner cooked on integrated, high-spec appliances. Pull back the French doors to let the breeze sweep across the parquet floors. Come golden hour, artwork and statement pieces take centre stage.
Two bedrooms are arranged above and below the living area. Follow the glass-balustrade staircase to the master suite on the second floor, where wall-to-wall storage and a pared-back palette keeps it clutter-free and airy. Modern style continues in the en suite, with its walk-in shower and brass accents. Climb the ladder to the roof terrace and discover views that are second-to-none. On the ground floor, a further bedroom that can be used as a guest room or office. It’s served by a dedicated dressing area and an immaculate bathroom.
