A skilfully remodelled three-bedroom Notting Hill family home with contemporary elegance and refined, traditional detailing.
Masterminded by Ben Smith Architecture, this three-bedroom house was radically transformed by the recent repositioning of its staircase, freeing up the lateral space to each floor. The property features two inspiring living areas; a formal reception on ground level and another at basement. The latter incorporated a stylish lounge, contemporary kitchen and dining space.
Iconic and eccentric design is expertly chosen; cue a stuffed rabbit in a glass box, gold tree trunk lamp stands and of course, CH24 Wishbone chairs from Carl Hansen. Open plan to each other, the dynamic zones combined seamlessly. Influenced by the sweeping and open nature of American or Australian architecture, the property was a shining example of clean, contemporary living. The room opens out to a jaw dropping west-facing garden, allowing gatherings from either space to overflow with each other.
Elegance reigns supreme in this home by a stunning wide and inviting entrance lobby that led the way to the formal reception room. The mighty use of colour was perhaps more prevalent here than anywhere else with moody grey, deep taupe and cool stone hues combining sublimely.
The first floor is occupied by a master bedroom suite, featuring a beautiful sleeping space, dark-wood dressing area and indulgent bathroom. With a monochrome colour palette and free-standing bath tub, the bathroom has a Parisian feel. The property includes two additional double bedrooms, both as light and spacious as the other, one family bathroom and one guest cloakroom. A nanny room, complete with a shower room, is also incorporated within the home.
