Designed for family living, this seven-bedroom home stands tall on one of Notting Hill’s most sought-after streets. The immaculately finished front garden, with its cast-iron railings and manicured topiary, is a precursor to the refined elegance that characterises the interiors.
Reams of light cascade down the entrance hallway. On one side, double doors open to a dining room. Decorative cornicing and chevron oak floors set the scene for formal dinner parties. On the other, head into an open-plan kitchen and reception. A clean-line marble island sits at the heart of the newly refurbished culinary space. Appliances are as ergonomic as they are stylish, from the Gaggenau oven to the Quooker taps. Sage green banquette seating forms a relaxed spot for quick lunches and leisurely breakfasts. A display column works to delineate the kitchen from the reception room. A palette of natural tones and textures span the bespoke wood shelving and a dark green L-shaped sofa – it’s a soothing and sophisticated space. An industrial stamp on Chepstow Villas’ period footprint, Crittall doors channel sunlight into the kitchen and living areas.
A masterstroke in landscape design, the garden is where high brick walls and soaring greenery ensure a remarkable sense of privacy. Alfresco lunches beneath the awning on the terrace. Press pause on a sun lounger next to blooming hydrangea bushes. The heated pool and outdoor speakers are imagined for all-year-round entertaining.
The first floor plays host to striking contemporary artwork and sculptures, as well as a formal reception room and master bedroom suite. Double French windows illuminate the spacious living room, which leads to a balcony overlooking the peaceful street below. Next door, there’s a refined elegance to the carpeted floors and pale tones of the principal bedroom. Through a dedicated dressing space with floor-to-ceiling wardrobes, the ensuite bathroom vaunts dual-aspect glazing and an opulent marble bath.
On the second floor, carefully considered wallpapers and furniture are showcased across four inviting bedrooms. Two of the rooms are currently used as study spaces; one of these also enjoys floor-to-ceiling wardrobes and a light-flooded ensuite bathroom. Head down to the lower-ground floor, where a second kitchen and two further bedrooms make for cosy staff or guest quarters. A snug games room, wine cellar and separate utility room complete this home of outstanding proportion, space and style.
