Set back from Hanover Road, this is a home that wows instantly. Fornasetti tiles, glossy marble, custom-made vanity units. That spectacular double living room where bay windows let the light bounce off blonde herringbone floors and the eye jumps between the handsome wood-burning fireplace, ornate cornicing and vast Crittall doorways. But beyond the good looks, behind-the-scenes technology takes this home…
Set back from Hanover Road, this is a home that wows instantly. Fornasetti tiles, glossy marble, custom-made vanity units. That spectacular double living room where bay windows let the light bounce off blonde herringbone floors and the eye jumps between the handsome wood-burning fireplace, ornate cornicing and vast Crittall doorways. But beyond the good looks, behind-the-scenes technology takes this home from attractive to a really attractive place to live. Underfloor heating. A Sonos sound system. Banham locks. Soundproofing in the bedrooms.
Throughout, storage has been cleverly integrated too. Perfect for stashing coats as you enter, or clothes in the bedrooms. And those boxes you barely touch in the loft. In the sleek, anthracite kitchen – a Siematic design – perch at the black-marble island for quick bites. Or make a meal of it in the sky lit dining area; two ovens are perfect for feeding a crowd.
A Crittall-framed extension is currently used as a children’s play area, though it would make an equally scenic book nook or a snug for after-dinner coffees. In the adjoining utility room, Miele appliances keep everyday chores under control and out of sight. Outside, the L-shaped garden – part patio, part lawn and a fringe of climbing flora – makes the most of London’s rays, morning and afternoon. Planning a barbecue? Get your friends and family to come in through the side gate.
To the front, there’s room for off-street parking and smart boxes for bicycles and bins. Bedrooms and bathrooms spread out across the upper floors, including a standout master suite where a clever, polished-plaster wall doubles up as a headboard to one side and the back of a walk-in wardrobe on the other. Good days here start opening the private balcony door to let the light breeze air in, and end flicking on the Tom Dixon bedside lamps and getting stuck into a good book. Four further bedrooms – one built into a vaulted ceiling space – are all blonde woods and bright, natural light on white walls. Think of them as a blank canvas for family life. Room to spread out.

Kensal Rise is best imagined as Notting Hill’s younger, more edgy little sister. You’re a street over from its leafy Chamberlayne Road, where starry residents brunch in Parlour, stock their fridges at Brooks and catch films at The Lexi, one of London’s best independent cinemas. Within a 20-minute walk, Kensal Green Cemetery takes its cue from Père Lachaise in Paris – an atmospheric backdrop to your morning stroll, as is the adjoining Grand Union Canal. You’re spoiled for transport connections with Kensal Rise Underground Station just being less then 10 minute walk away [Bakerloo & Overground].
