Soaring ceilings and a calming colour palette bring heritage features to the fore. A four-bedroom apartment combining the classic blueprint of two 19th-century stucco-fronted buildings.
Enter on the first floor, where period grandeur echoes its architectural history; elaborate cornicing that wrap around soaring ceilings, vast glazing that carve out suntrap moments and doorless archways that channel the flow of space. Its pared-back aesthetics leave room to run with your creativity. East-facing double doors flood the nearly four-metre-high living space with natural light. Push them open to an intimate balcony that overlooks the hushed cul-de-sac. A feature fireplace serves as a warming focal point among the soft, muted tones that reflect the sense of quiet on your doorstep – equal parts calming and dynamic. Entertaining is a breeze with freshly brewed post-brunch coffees, poured from the integrated machine in the adjacent, chef-grade kitchen. There’s an industrial aesthetic to it; towering ceilings, stainless-steel surfaces and a thoroughly efficient design. Food prepped on the generous island and cooked with integrated Miele appliances as natural light pours through a further two sets of double doors. An internal window carries it through to the bedroom above and an archway channels it into the pantry behind the kitchen.
There’s a restful atmosphere in the four bedrooms. Two suites – lined with light whites and velvet headboards – make waking up easy. The master is served by a glossy, bronze en suite with a gently curved freestanding bathtub and shower. A dedicated dressing area takes it up a notch. Upstairs, the second enjoys access to a private terrace. Leafy trees and a whitewashed wall afford peace and privacy. Two further bedrooms take up the rest of the second floor. One offers an airy layout, a walnut media wall and space to set up a work-from-home spot. And a new angle of this property’s vast dimensions.
There’s a sense of privacy to this quiet cul-de-sac. The blonde-brick homes that line the streets reflect Notting Hill’s architectural heritage, but the nearby boutiques, bars and restaurants are what capture the spirit of today’s Notting Hill – Portobello is only ten minutes away.
