Muted tones and minimalist design invite peace and reflection at this four-bedroom Holland Park townhouse. Its stucco-fronted façade and cast-iron railings set in motion a pared-back, elegant feel that’s echoed inside.
In the double reception room, high ceilings are accentuated with warm white tones, creating a blank canvas that lets artwork pop. Natural light streams through the south-facing sash window, keeping the backdrop bright. At its centre, a fireplace nods to the building’s Georgian heritage, while mid-century inspired furniture upholstered in teals and browns lifts the space. A seating area flows through into a dining room, where double doors open onto the garden beyond. White tulip chairs finished with red cushions circle a table – an ideal spot for family meals or an evening of boardgames.
Form meets function in the considered kitchen. Clean lines and uncluttered marble surfaces allow the considered craftsmanship to shine. Keen cooks should take note of the range cooker. A house tailor-made for entertaining, a second dining space features French doors out to the leafy, tree-lined garden. A space of impressive proportions, its double-height ceiling is lined with clerestory windows that enhance the light and airy feel. A bubble-shaped chandelier forms a striking centrepiece, suspended over a circular dining table that seats six.
Above, a picture window in the upstairs library looks out over the space, emphasising the volumes at play. Painted in a dramatic red with an Eames lounge chair, it makes for an atmospheric reading spot.
The bedrooms revert to a more neutral colour palette. The principal suite is finished in soothing tones and warm wooden furniture. Its streamlined en suite features a crisp white roll top bath and walk-in shower. Two further bedrooms are found on the top floor – one with access to a balcony – served by a shower room complete with an inviting sauna.
A further reception room and en suite bedroom is found on the lower ground floor. With its own entrance, this level is perfect for nannies, teenagers or guests who appreciate their own space.
