At the end of a row of terraced townhouses on one of London’s most sought-after streets, this three-bedroom property – signposted by a thriving olive tree – is a daring contrast to modern 21st-century minimalism. Grand proportions showcase the hallmarks of its period pedigree; ornate cornicing, Versailles parquet floors and corbel fire mantles. Interiors have been designed to match. Ornamental furnishings, William Morris wallpaper and nature-inspired motifs memorialise its rich heritage. At the rear, a mature garden framed in lush greenery.
A free-flowing double reception room and balcony unfurls across the ground floor. The palette here is earthy; forest greens and deep browns amplify the sense of space. Dual-aspect sash windows let natural light wash across the intricate ceiling mouldings, the marble fire surround and cast-iron radiators. Diffused boundaries and lofty heights make it spacious and airy. Furnishings are dramatically patterned and masterfully carved; a winged, tufted sofa, a decorative fabric wall hanging and an east-Asian style folding screen.
The lower floor is considerately zoned but open doorways retain seamless flow. Midnight-blue cabinetry topped with terracotta-hued Carrara counters and wood floors dress the pared-back kitchen. It’s designed with practicality in mind; open shelving contoured into a rectangular alcove, built-in appliances and a casual dining area. The adjacent lounge echoes the navy hues of the kitchen and can be easily closed off for privacy thanks to cleverly placed curtains. Just beyond, a dining room inspired by the arts and crafts movement; flora and fauna motifs, Victorian-style drapery and striking colours, illuminated by a lantern skylight. French doors reveal a mature, brick-paved garden, framed by a striking wrought iron trellis. Its imposing presence is softened by the lush ivy that winds across it.
The master suite takes over the entire first storey, with two sets of double doors that open onto Juliet balconies. Details are meticulous here and replicate the themes of the social spaces downstairs; eye-catching embellished wallpaper – cut from fabric this time – a fire mantel carved from the same stone as the kitchen countertops and Versailles parquet floors. Through the dedicated Fermoie-clad dressing space, a jewel-toned bathroom – all emerald greens, berry reds and damask prints – with a freestanding boat bath and another Juliet balcony. The second floor is divided between two bedrooms and a reading room. The largest double – outfitted in Chinoiserie-style wallpaper – is served by a mint green en-suite bathroom. It’s equipped with an exposed chrome sink, a cove bath and a separate shower.
