A place to press pause. Situated on the top two floors of a stucco-fronted home, this apartment has been expertly imagined for entertaining and relaxing in equal measure.
The layout has been thoughtfully inverted, with the open-plan living room and kitchen occupying the third floor; light floods this social space through the skylight, dual-aspect windows and steel-framed Crittal doors. A mirrored wall amplifies the sense of light and space. Preparing food is a thoroughly relaxed affair, with integrated appliances and sleek countertops over in the kitchen. Three teardrop pendants illuminate the central island for evening cooking sessions. Host guests around the dining table before cosying up together in front of your favourite film. On warmer days, head out to the west-facing terrace – your own private sun-trap overlooking the surrounding roofscape.
A set of pale wood stairs lead you down to the master bedroom – a welcome retreat from the bustle of Holland Park and Notting Hill. The space is characterised by an elegant functionality, with a pared-back palette, soft carpets and dedicated dressing room. Its en-suite bathroom offers invigorating showers and long soaks in the freestanding bath. Two further bedrooms – with soft tones and comfortable furnishings – make for contemporary sanctuaries for all to enjoy.
