The scale and grandeur of a Georgian townhouse. The design-forward sensibility of a modern family home. A six-bedroom townhouse, where modern luxuries, considered design and timeless style echoed its central Notting Hill location.
Though the proportions of this six-bedroom townhouse were vast, the attention to detail was hair-splitting. Beyond its stucco front, set back from the thrum of Ledbury Road, family life plays out across six thoughtfully interconnected floors. The double-fronted reception room on the first floor impressed in seconds. Bold lines of dark lacquer and straight-cut marble were softened by muted tones, period details and natural light that poured through picture windows. A subtle theme you’ll notice throughout. This is a space designed for entertaining, with an intimate conservatory area that lights up with good conversation at golden hour.
Daily life unfolded on the ground and lower-ground floors, between the family snug and the gleaming kitchen-dining room that opens to an east-facing garden. On sunny days, the doors are best slid back, amplifying the sense of space from the interior to the manicured outdoors space. Alternatively, the roof terrace offered the perfect space for a barbecue among the chimney tops – all appliances had been considerately integrated.
The upper storeys were dedicated to sleeping and grooming. The master suite occupied the entire second floor, with a walk-in wardrobe leading to a sleek en-suite; a dual vanity and bath offered style and serenity. The further five bedrooms – all characterised by a contemporary luxe – were spread out across the home. A utility room and discreet staff accommodation to keep things running smoothly. In the basement, modern luxuries really take this home up a level. A state-of-the-art gym, a spare room for lingering guests and an art-deco cinema with a bar. Cult classics go down best with a negroni, after all.
