Bright light, a canvas of colour and spaces designed for gathering. Plus, a landscaped garden.
Privacy comes naturally in this quiet terrace, where Dickensian-era architecture and wide, tree-lined streets cast a quiet charm. Step past the stucco-fronts and portico entrances and you’ll find vast proportions, 21st-century design sensibility and décor that echo the vibrant shades of perennials – the touch of its respected florist-owner.
Families can spread out across this five-floor home. It’s all statement patterns and bright light. Eye-catching furniture and uplifting artwork. Days in can be spent between the two reception rooms. No matter where you are, marble fireplaces and sash windows that channel natural light create a warm welcome. On the ground-floor reception room, gather friends for digestifs beneath ornate cornicing after mains around the dining table. In warmer climes, clink glasses on the outdoor terrace, where a screen of shrubs keeps things thoroughly private. Young adults can flick through the channels in the first-floor lounge.
The garden level is the heart of the home and enjoys a separate entrance. And it’s refreshingly kaleidoscopic. A sophisticated kitchen, fully equipped with modern appliances and marble finishes joins up with an informal dining area and a living room with a long sink-in sofa. Imagine pouring coffee at the marble island, while someone serves breakfast at the table. The open-plan layout and wall-to-wall sliding door lets floral interiors flow effortlessly into the peaceful, walled garden.
The upper levels are dedicated to disconnecting. And a scenic balcony. Ebony tones are a visual retreat from the theatre of colours below. Wake up with the sun in the stylish master suite. Breathe in the botanicals on the private balcony. Past the walk-in wardrobe: a large en-suite with a walk-in shower and deep-seated bath. Two further bedrooms share a family bathroom on the third storey.
Elsewhere, a laundry room keeps the everyday running smoothly.
