There is a part of the very fabric of North Kensington’s rich history that is defined by its residents, past and present.

Tucked away down a leafy side street away from the bustle of Ladbroke Grove, this home (which once belonged to Molly Parkin) has been reimagined for contemporary family life. The foundation for this beautiful house are great bones and the double-height ceilings, original decorative detailing, huge windows and pools of natural light are the perfect foil for an interior that can best be described as 21st-century modern English.

The heart of this home is a kitchen designed by 2013 Andrew Martin Interior Designer of the Year, Rose Uniacke; complete with a full-range cooker, endless storage and a scrubbed kitchen table. Double doors lead to a classic London sitting room while the more formal reception room on the first floor continues the tradition of ‘retiring upstairs ‘after dinner. The top floors house three bedrooms and a master bedroom suite and like an ‘all seeing eye’ the attic room is defined by its huge circular window which gives the greatest birds-eye view of the world.

Throughout the house, rooms have a subtle drama to them. A wealth of velvet, silk and linen hangs at the windows, oversized rugs huddle against the glossy grain of polished original wood floors and a palette of tonal neutrals that add just a whisper of colour to the walls creating a backdrop for a lifestyle that needs no explanation.

Completing the picture are front and rear gardens. More than 20m of grassed lawns in a secure environment completely frame the house and support its local role as a desirable family house.
