Set into a period terrace a stone’s throw from Chelsea’s coveted Sloane Square is a design-led home crafted by Anthro Architecture. Cooling, whitewashed living spaces pair with reems of daylight in the open-plan reception room. Occupying the raised ground level, dark stone flooring sets the scene. Bespoke joinery elevates the space, which is accented with curious artwork. Grab a book from the shelf and settle into the reading nook or catch up with friends in the convivial seating area that overlooks the level below.
On this floor, an oval table provides seating for eight, its dark wood grain surface illuminated by natural light. Expansive glazing soars upwards before wrapping over the space in the form of a glass roof. This area leads out to a split-level patio garden perfect for an al fresco cappuccino or whiling away a summer’s afternoon.
Arranged around a central island, a wood-wrapped kitchen speaks of Scandinavian influences. Prepare a meal using integrated appliances then eat on the marble-topped breakfast bar. Concealing the entrance to an aesthetic cloakroom, uniform vertical lines play across a feature wall. Rounded at one end, its form recalls the curvature of the island. Light is channelled all the way through the kitchen and into a comfortable TV area – an ideal spot to watch a film with the family.
The principal bedroom suite is characterised by tall, southwest-facing sash windows and a dark feature wall with recessed shelving and built-in reading lights. A modern en suite bathroom features twin basins, a freestanding bath and a walk-in shower. Three further bedrooms benefit from fitted storage, natural light and hardwood floors. One bedroom could be used as an exercise space and comes with a Peloton. Another bedroom is ideal as a study.
