A generously proportioned mansion flat transformed into a modern-day city sanctum.
Four floors above the bustle of Bayswater, through a portered entrance and accessed via a lift, sits this meticulously designed apartment – a cluster of immaculate rooms that press pause on city life outside.
Blonde herringbone floors run the gamut of the hallway to the far end of the apartment. Through a set of Crittall double doors: a large space lit by windows at either end, carefully configured into cooking, dining and sitting zones. Set the tone with the apartment's well thought out lighting scheme. The kitchen, with three large sash windows, offers up a convivial spot for hosts to cook, with an island that doubles up as a breakfast bar – also a good spot for low key, scaled-down suppers. Discreet integrated appliances and a large dining area make entertaining a thoroughly seamless affair. And for after dinner, sprawl out and relax in the lounging area at the other end of the room, near the canted bay window.
Along the hallway, a series of four double bedrooms each finished in quiet colours, plush soft furnishings and with pendant mood lighting. The master bedroom with its twin wardrobes and light-filled bay window is serviced by a beautifully finished bathroom. A walk-in Crittall screened rainfall shower and a deep egg-shaped freestanding bath on its own plinth make this an indulgent spot to unwind after a long day. Another bedroom suite has its own cabin shower – ideal for guests or any teenagers needing their own space. Two further bedrooms share a family bathroom.
