This three-bedroom Notting Hill home is a design-forward setting for modern city living.
Sunderland Terrace, lined with leafy trees and blonde-brick Georgian townhouses, is one of Notting Hill’s most handsome streets. Set over three floors, considered and contemporary design fast-forwards this three-bedroom apartment into the 21st century.
Past interior French doors, rich wood floors draw you into an open-plan reception room and kitchen – with an atmosphere that toes between uplifting and soothing. Proportions are carved with light and space in mind; floor-to-ceiling shelving accentuates the high ceilings, whilst natural light beams through south-facing sash windows. A nod to the home’s period pedigree, the fireplace is a cosy focal point. Form and function are effortlessly married in the kitchen. Aquamarine-toned cabinets are offset by gilded ironmongery; a white Ilve range cooker mirrors as deVOL butler sink. Smooth marble worktops await culinary creativity, whilst illustrated splashback tiles are a charming ode to the pastoral.
Soft pink walls guide you upstairs to the bedrooms; spaces of solace with hushed tones and reams of natural light. The principal bedroom suite features a walk-in-wardrobe and inviting bathroom, where a marble-topped vanity and oversized shower are finished in soothing marine hues. There’s a tranquility to the guest bedroom suite next door, with whitewashed walls illuminated through sash windows. Its ensuite, by contrast, is an invigorating showpiece of bathroom design. Monochromatic metro and honeycomb tiling are a striking backdrop for a free-standing bath and Crittall-framed shower. A further bedroom is nestled on the fourth floor; a voluminous space courtesy of Velux windows set in the vaulted roof. Complete with eave storage and an additional WC, it’s a light-flooded sanctum that could be reimagined as a home office.
