An apartment with proportions as compelling as its Hollywood lineage. Occupying the first floors of a Victorian terraced house, this three-bedroom home is a sanctuary of considered design and spacious living.
Ascend to the first floor of this spacious apartment and feel a sense of familiarity: the coveted film About a Boy was filmed here, just one reason this home impresses. High ceilings, floor-to-ceiling sash windows and ornate cornicing are a testament to its period pedigree. The home’s palette was a masterstroke in monochrome, with whitewashed walls the dark wenge wood floors – leading between the spaces to create a seamless sense of flow. Thoughtfully zoned into living and dining areas, there’s space for relaxing and hosting in equal measure.
The living room showcased mid-century modern antiques, such as Saarien chairs, and a striking copper wall installment. Next door, the dining room is the piece de resistance, with a cubic mobile suspended above the jet-black marble table – amplifying the sense of height. The stainless-steel kitchen epitomises stylish functionality. The glossy metallic surfaces illuminated through a wall of sash windows, it offers a relaxing and sleek culinary space. There’s direct access to a west-facing terrace, a secluded sun-trap come warmer months. With air conditioning and a built-in sound system running throughout the home, it’s the perfect space for entertaining all-year round.
Upstairs, the considered palette of materials and colours continued into the master bedroom, served by a tranquil en-suite bathroom: an inviting jacuzzi bath awaits. Two further bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the home. Views of St Stephen’s Church and excellent proximity to Westbourne Grove elevate this property’s credentials to the highest degree.
