In the heart of North Kensington, sophisticated interior design and uplifting sunlit spaces characterise this seven-bedroom home for rent.
Behind the striking red-brick façade of this seven-bedroom family home, five expansive floors are bound by flawlessly crafted interiors. Decorative floor tiles make a stylish first impression in the ground-floor entrance hall. Occupying the floor are two reception rooms, complete with immaculately-laid timber floors, reams of natural light and neutral tones. The front room is a functional space, with a row of mirror-fronted cupboards offering plenty of storage. In the rear, a more formal tone is set by the elegant marble fireplace and refined furnishings.
Taking centre stage between the ground and lower-ground storeys is an artfully conceived spiral staircase. Thin panels of glazing are engineered between whitewashed pilasters, while the pale wood treads and modern balustrade gently curve into the open-plan social setting. The floor is thoughtfully zoned: on the raised level sits an inviting L-shaped sofa and contemporary fireplace; down a set of steps, a dining table and marble-topped kitchen island are illuminated by sets of glass pendant lights. Sunlight stretches across the spacious proportions, courtesy of the full-height windows that slide open to the private garden. Framing the patio and lawn is a stock brick wall, affording textural charm to the al fresco scene.
A family room sits at the heart of the basement level, bathed in natural light through floor-to-ceiling Crittall windows. The rest of the floor is given over to study and sleeping spaces: at one end, a sophisticated office is complete with navy-toned joinery and additional Crittall glazing that opens out to a lightwell patio. At the other end, two bedrooms are calming environments with contemporary en suite bathrooms. Plus, there’s an additional kitchenette and utility room showcasing sleek pale grey cabinets and metro tiles.
The principal bedroom suite is situated on the first floor, imagined with a minimalist interior palette. Natural light abounds through large sash windows, softly illuminating the pale walls and wood floors. Past the dedicated dressing area is a stylish en suite bathroom, featuring pebble-toned marble that wraps around a rainfall shower, dual vanity and sculptural freestanding tub. Four additional bedrooms and two bathrooms are spread across the first and second floors, each with a considered tonal palette and plenty of storage. From one of the rooms, there’s direct access onto the south-west facing roof terrace.
