Formerly home to a Spanish ambassador, there’s a stately feel to this two-bedroom apartment in Notting Hill overlooking verdant private gardens below.
On the ground and first floor of an end-of-terrace building, its clever design makes the most of light and space; double-height ceilings, soaring windows and a mezzanine. The spacious reception room is zoned; a formal dining area near the entrance and sofas arranged near the built-in TV. Storage is subtle and stylish, concealed by handleless joinery. Through the nearly full-length windows, a southeast-facing balcony overlooks the manicured communal garden. The kitchen is ergonomically designed with ample storage, integrated appliances and a floor-to-ceiling window.
Two bedrooms are pared-back and considered; the master is tucked into the mezzanine and is fitted with built-in wardrobes, a freestanding tub and a modern en-suite shower room. The second bedroom is served by its own shower and separate washroom.
One of Notting Hill’s peace-and-quiet crescents, Ladbroke Gardens sits just off classy Westbourne Grove, a street lined with independent boutiques, restaurants and cafes.
