Sitting securely within a walled plot, this Ladbroke Road home is elegant inside and out. A hallmark of its original architecture, ornate plasterwork columns embedded into the brickwork add a refined air, while a gated entrance and driveway envelope the exterior in a layer of privacy.
Step inside to classic design choices that favour simplicity, allowing period features to do the talking. To maximise the four-floor footprint, sympathetic contemporary interventions have simultaneously made the house more conducive to family life. The entire ground floor is dedicated to an open-plan kitchen, reception and dining room, where each space flows seamlessly into the next. A fireplace provides a focal point for a formal seating area painted a soothing shade of grey. Just beyond, a curved wall brings impact to a dining section that’s crowned by an ornate ceiling. The kitchen has been meticulously planned; streamlined cabinetry, integrated appliances and a custom-made island in two contrasting types of stone contribute to the considered space, which leads to a low-maintenance courtyard garden.
A series of additional domestic areas are tucked away on the floor below (note the utility room and cellar with its custom-made wine rack and wine fridge), which forms the nerve centre of everyday life. Also on this level, a more intimate reception room makes for an atmospheric media hub; a projector and uplighting lend a cinema-like quality. For guests, nannies or older children who want their own space, there’s a quiet bedroom suite with access to a patio.
Five additional bedrooms are arranged over the top two floors, each with the luxury of their own en suite bathroom. On the first floor, the principal suite is a work of art. A double-aspect outlook washes the space in both morning and evening light, setting in motion a calming feel. Divided into three distinct areas, a sleeping section leads into a well-appointed dressing room complete with bespoke wardrobes that stretch to the ceiling. A sophisticated bathroom with a marble-wrapped shower and separate bathtub completes the line up. Towards the back of the property, a smart guest room shares the same pared-back aesthetic with fitted storage and a slick shower room.
Arranged around a skylit landing on the second floor, you’ll find three further bedroom suites – the largest of which opens onto a balcony that’s positioned to catch the sunrise. An adjoining bedroom features cleverly integrated furniture, including a desk and a bunk bed, making it a versatile space for the youngest members of the family.
