An original, immaculately-preserved façade sings in harmony with Melrose Garden’s rows of period townhouses. This five bedroom home – which sits on a rare end-of-terrace plot with side access – has been crafted with a future-forward sensibility. Eco-conscious technology, a state-of-the-art security system and sophisticated interior design were the organising principles behind its renovation. Across five spacious floors, VOC-free paint, customised Pure H2O water systems, double glazing and sustainable insulation are hallmarks of the property’s environmentally-friendly rigor. With cutting-edge materials, voluminous light-filled living spaces and timeless style, this family dwelling is a lesson in avant-garde architectural creativity.
A Yoshino cherry blossom tree stands elegantly in the front garden, setting a refined tone as you walk along the mosaic tile footpath to the entrance. Oak parquet floors – a feature that runs throughout the home – draw you into the kitchen and breakfast room. A bespoke John Desmond bronze-toned stainless steel island centres the room with mesmerising effect, surrounded by runs of smoked sage cabinets, Miele appliances and Calacatta quartzite worktops. Above the sink and integrated hob, a dark mirrored splashback is accented with light that filters through a bay window.
Steps lead down into the double reception room, infused with light through two spectacular 11 metre floor-to-ceiling windows in the flank wall and FABCO Crittall windows to the rear. This pair of custom-made vertical windows required significant technical engineering and steel construction, being the largest single-run glass Pilkington have fitted to a London residence. A spacious footprint can be zoned for seating and dining purposes, framed on one side by concealed cupboards that span the room’s entire length. Handcrafted ceiling roses and cornicing pay homage to the building’s period heritage, whilst sculptural chandeliers breathe contemporary flair into the space. The gas fireplace is a cosy point for gathering, laid with a Victorian Carrara marble mantelpiece.
Beyond the full-height glazing lies a showpiece of urban landscape design. Dark stained timber slats create a backdrop of privacy for pleached cherry laurels, raised beds with ilex topiary, white headed agapanthus and culinary herbs. The garden is delineated between a clean-line patio and medallion grass lawn, tailor-made for entertaining in sunny climes.
A staircase with French polished handrails and steel spindles descends to a basement living area, filled with soft light through a ceiling void. It’s an inviting space to be imagined as a gym or cinema room – complete with a projector and wall of full-height curtains which conceal large amounts of storage. Next door, a dedicated laundry room pairs form and function with a double Belfast sink and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry. Beyond, a contemporary bedroom impresses with high ceilings, served by an en suite with a Cielo Shui basin and Calacatta floor tiling. Completing this storey, a WC showcases Dornbracht brassware and bespoke marble sink, plus a high-tech sauna room.
The principal bedroom suite flows across the first floor, with sunlight beaming through south-facing, double-glazed bay and sash windows. Through a dedicated dressing room with walnut fitted wardrobes, the en suite bathroom is boldly wrapped in book-matched Statuario marble with iconic Vola hardware. Occupying the entire third floor is a guest bedroom suite, enjoying a voluminous feel courtesy of vaulted ceilings, Velux windows and a skylight. Its bathroom showcases ocean-blue tiles and a mid-century modern style dual vanity. Downstairs, two further bedrooms are served by an awe-inspiring family bathroom: a Hurlingham rolltop bath stands against a Calacatta marble partition wall, yet further testament to the home’s impeccable interior creativity.
