The thrum of Bayswater quietens as you walk down St Petersburgh Place. There’s a sense of history to the New West End Synagogue and St Matthew’s church that stand tall amongst the rows of leafy trees. Set discreetly back from the street and past cast-iron gates, a striking redbrick façade is revealed – behind which lies a property of unique spatial configuration. A complete structural reorganisation by Benedetti Architects transformed two Edwardian houses, a courtyard garden and double mews building into a seven-bedroom home. A sophisticated canvas for family dwelling, expect a sense of surprise throughout its six spacious storeys.
There’s a country-pile feel to the entrance hallway, with a fireplace framed by an oxblood leather surround. Large stone floor tiles flow into an L-shaped living space, considerately zoned between a streamlined kitchen and two dining areas. Dual-aspect fenestration invites soft light inside, whilst bi-folding doors can be drawn to create privacy between rooms. From the kitchen, full-height glazing slides open to the terrace which gazes onto the green wall of the mews’ exterior.
An architectural staircase is a captivating presence at the centre of the main house, sculpted with open-rise treads and a sinuous steel balustrade. Occupying the entire first floor, a formal reception room retains its traditional grandeur with a series of full-height sash windows. It’s a refined space bathed in sunlight, with sweeping blonde wood floors delineated between sitting and study areas.
Spread across the second floor, the principal bedroom suite is spacious and serene. From the sleeping area, doors open to a study and dressing room respectively. An en suite bathroom features a large curved bath and dual vanity, wrapped in oversized marble tiles. A skylight illuminates the top of the stairwell – inviting you upstairs to four additional bedrooms. Each with sash windows and pale carpets, they are pared-back spaces poised for interior creativity. A separate shower room and family bathroom wrapped in Moroccan-inspired tiles are also found on this floor.
Set on the lower-ground level of the main house, a playroom makes a bold impression with red lacquered floors. There’s a year-round al fresco feel with synergy between the inside and out, courtesy of floor-to-ceiling glass that opens to the courtyard garden. It’s a meditative suntrap with neatly integrated stone seating. Back inside, a concealed door reveals a staircase leading to the basement reception room. With textural crimson wallpaper, cubic ceiling lights and an integrated projector, it’s a cosy setting for entertaining. Marble steps ascend to the mews section of the home. The first-floor living space is thoroughly contemporary, complete with a self-contained kitchen and reams of morning sunlight. Upstairs, two bedrooms are neutral in tone and calming in feel, both enjoying access to a balcony. Complete with two family-sized bathrooms, it’s a space tailor-made for staff or guests. A double garage is situated on the ground floor, leading directly onto the peaceful enclave of St Petersburgh Mews.
