A bricked passageway leads from the thrum of Ladbroke Grove into the quiet enclave of Elgin Mews. Behind its understated exterior, a five-bedroom home has been crafted with a finely-tuned aesthetic and the clever integration of sunlight across its unique footprint.
From the entrance hallway, sliding doors – a feature installed throughout the home – seamlessly open into the ground-floor reception room, spread across pale parquet floors. The eye is immediately drawn to the full-height glazing that frames an internal lightwell on three sides. The first bedroom suite is located on the opposite side of the void, complete with a wall of wooden storage and soothing en suite shower room.
The home’s social heart is spread across the lower-ground floor, thoughtfully zoned between cooking, dining and living areas. Pairing form with function, the kitchen’s charcoal-toned cabinets frame high-spec integrated appliances. There’s a dedicated bar area, backdropped by a mirror to accentuate the sense of space and light. Banquette seating is neatly set into the wall – it’s an inviting spot for conversing whilst food is being prepared. Subtly contrasting the kitchen’s cooler tones, the adjacent reception room showcases warm sand-coloured marble and wooden slat panelling. Like the floor above, three sides of floor-to-ceiling glass frame a void, channelling swathes of sunlight into the subterranean plot. Dedicated to entertaining, the basement-level family room features a projector screen engineered into the ceiling. There’s direct access to the patio garden, with a verdant living wall softening the surrounding industrial edifice. Also found on this floor, a guest bedroom suite and dedicated utility room.
Enjoying its position at the top of the home, the principal bedroom suite is minimalist in style and tranquil in feel. Whitewashed walls and parquet floors set the scene for integrated wooden wardrobes. Next door, a skylit en suite bathroom features a square bath and inviting rainfall shower. Downstairs, two double bedrooms continue the neutral palette that characterises the home, served by an additional shower room. From this level, there’s access to a decked roof terrace – a peaceful suntrap for the capital’s warmer climes.
