Rarely do properties present a hat trick of internationally renowned design, yet this is one property that does just that. Designed originally by Mike Spink of Spink Property, a name synonymous with the creation of some of the finest homes in the world, later refreshed by RIBA award-winners Seth Stein Architects and offset by a large garden created by Christopher Bradley-Hole, this house is exceptional and faultless in its presentation. It must surely be one of the finest rental properties to have come onto the London market this year.
A three-storey, five-bedroom luxury home with a self-contained staff apartment, this house is set around a central atrium and hidden away behind electric gates in the beautiful pocket covering both Notting Hill and Holland Park. Portland Road is one of several highly desirable streets that form a leafy grid around some of the best garden squares in the capital.
Internally this house is defined by its use of beautiful natural materials, its huge volumes of space and corridors of glass overlooking a series of very private internal terraces. It is a house to admire and one for entertaining and areas associated with this pastime are in multiple. There are two kitchens, a beautifully crafted display space and a more serviceable hidden area complete with wine fridges and additional storage. There are also two reception rooms, one for relaxing and one for more formal evenings. The bedrooms are defined by their proposed use with two bedroom suites located on the second floor, two guest suites located on the ground floor and a completely separate master bedroom suite combining a dressing room, a spa bathroom and a private terrace.
Detailing at every level is completely exact and there are signature notes from both Spink Property and Seth Stein Architects across every level of this home. The tiered glass terraces and domed roof in the master bedroom is a trademark of Seth Stein Architects while the superb bespoke cabinetry and clever hidden space solutions are something that Spink Property excels at. Further depth has been added with the tactile, luxurious furnishings which bring a subtle dash of colour to the neutral relaxing surroundings.
