There’s a sense of quiet elegance to the leafy rows of Victorian townhouses along Cambridge Gardens. Behind a blonde brick façade, a spacious period footprint has been elevated with expertly-designed interiors. Leave the thrum of the city behind as you enter the social heart of the home – a serene and sophisticated space with remarkable ceiling height. Teal, orange and chartreuse tones breath warmth into the whitewashed room, which is bathed in light through south-facing sash windows. It’s an environment tailor-made for relaxing and socialising; cosy up with a page-turner on an armchair or host a games evening with friends around the dining table. Pick up ingredients from coveted Notting Hill Fish and Meat shop and cook up a storm in the kitchen. It’s all monochromatic cool, with eye-catching details spanning the jet-black taps and white metro tile splashback.
Where better to press pause than the tranquil master bedroom? Its spacious proportions and pared-back palette have a hushed elegance about them, with floor-to-ceiling wardrobes just perfect to store treasured finds from Portobello Road. Through a sliding door, an ensuite bathroom is a talking point of aesthetic excellence. Terracotta-coloured tiles and speckled marble floors set the scene for an oversized walk-in shower and dual vanity. A calming guest bedroom lies next door, also enjoying plenty of storage. A second bathroom matches the innovation of the master ensuite: blue and white geometric tiles are emboldened by a black-framed shower. For those dedicated home workers, an office is set for peaceful contemplation. Transform this cosy space into a third bedroom for occasional guests.
